Watch The World's Fastest Four-Cylinder Mitsubishi... Burst Into Flames

Illustration for article titled Watch The World's Fastest Four-Cylinder Mitsubishi... Burst Into Flames

A Nissan GT-R breaking 200 MPH at The Texas Mile was awesome, but unsurprising. This Evo breaking the four-cylinder Mitsubishi top speed record with a 228 MPH pass and then bursting into flames? Literally and figuratively explosive.


There's a quick moment of joy in the AMS Drag EVO VIII right before the car turns the corner at the Texas Mile and starts smoking (it sparked as it crossed the traps) and then FIRE! RUN! FIRE! A few pixels in the distance is yours truly holding a pair of binoculars reassuring everyone the guy got out of the car.

That inlet on the front fascia to the left of the Mitsu badge...at the risk of sounding like a nOOb but, is that for the turbo? Some sort of ram-air type thing?

Or is it just a regular ole' cooling intake?

Please, enlighten me.

Also, RIP one fast ass Evo.
