There isn’t a big story behind this one: In 2013, Mitsubishi supplied two Safety Cars for the Pikes Peak race:
One was an Outlander, and the other this Lancer Evo.
It took until this year for Tomica to make a model of it as a part of the “Aeon Tuning Car Series” - exclusive to the Aeon shops in Japan.
I actually went up Pikes Peak once, all the way back in 1988 in a rather asthmatic Buick Skylark.
Mind you, once I got up there, I really felt the effects of the altitude as well, I don’t think I’ve ever been up that high before.
Anyway, enough of me - enjoy your weekend everyone.
