Chad Shirtliff: 2003 Mitsubishi Evolution

Chad Shirtliff wanted something that encompassed the best of both worlds: power and practicality. With a platform that can handle up to 1000 horsepower and still rock 4 doors, the 2003 Mitsubishi Evolution 8 was a solid choice. Since taking ownership, Shirtliff has modified his Evo into a monster at his shop, Perfect Performance.
