Mitsubishi X-Car

Well now, here's a curiosity. Designed and built by X Works Automotive, it takes the Mitsubishi Evo series - focused, purposeful, a bit scary - to its logical conclusion: a one-off, extreme track weapon that's totally uncompromising.
It's based around a McLaren-style carbon-fibre tub, with the mechanicals from an Evo VI cradled in lightweight subframes; the body panels are bespoke carbon-fibre items. It runs the Evo VI's standard state of tune, but at just 1,100kgs it's pokey enough to lap Silverstone as quickly as an F430 Challenge racer. Looks brilliantly odd too, doesn't it?
