Sean Segal 2008 Mitsubishi Evolution X GSR TBGLIVE 1

Before purchasing the 2008 Mitsubishi Evolution X GSR, Sean Segal went to the dealership to check out a Lancer Ralliart. It was an older model, similar to the the Evolution VIII, but after just one test drive, he thought this was definitely 'the one.'

“While by no means a super car, I hadn't had much experience with fast cars. The guy showing us the car had swung it around the corners pretty hard,” Segal fondly recalls.

But when the test drive was over and they were back in the dealership, his eyes locked onto another, older model: the 3000GT. There must have been some sort chemistry between the two of them because before Segal could even take the next car for a spin, the dealer already had a hidden gem in mind.

“He beckons me over to a private elevator that brought us to a garage situated above the dealership. Sitting there, like out of a dream, was a silver Evolution VIII.”

Already modified and in pristine condition, Segal knew this was the car for him; he didn’t want to see anything else. There was only one problem. Well make that two. The first hurdle was his limited budget, but more pressing was the fact that it wasn’t particularly street legal in Canada at the time.

“Fast forward a few years, I see a post on the internet that Canada will now be bringing in the all new Mitsubishi Evolution X.”

The rest, Segal says, is history. He picked up the GSR almost immediately after the Canadian launch, and plans to drive it until there isn’t a kilometer left. Before that day comes, Segal also hopes to make some additional interior modifications, including new seats, roll cage and race harnesses.
