Yes, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is the 8th Hot Wheels Super TH...
There has been a lot of photos circulating, and a lot of questions sent our way about this.
So yes, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution will be the 8th Super. We have known about this for some time now, but didn't want to share without proper pics. Some photos that have circulated on Instagram and elsewhere are photos we will never show, and we recommend others pass on showing them as well.
But, since the word is out, and there is this recently expired listing on eBay, we thought we would share the good news.
It should be noted that these are most likely not the correct wheels. From what we know the Evo Super will sport blue spoked rims, but we will be able to confirm that in time.
We are always happy to see another Japanese Super TH. Like many recent releases, this model sports a Speedhunters theme, which we have mixed feelings about. We do love Speedhunters, but it is one thing to have racing theme with real logos, like the Datsun Wagon Super last year, it is entirely another to plaster the hashtag and theme of a website all over an already good-looking casting. We reserve our right to change our opinion, but right now this Super is a bit of a disappointment.
What are your thoughts?
