Subaru WRX Gets The Face Of A Mitsubishi Lancer Evo

Tuning / Comments

If you can't choose, you blend.

It was a sad day when the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution took its last breath, but if we're honest, we'd rather that it stays dead than returns as a crossover (Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, we're looking at you). Enthusiasts and even shareholders have been clamoring for a new Evo for ages now, but we doubt we'll see it return anytime soon. Its eternal rival, the Subaru WRX STi, is still around, thankfully, and its fans are still arguing with Evo fans over which is better. There's very little that the two camps can agree on, but one thing they'll reach a negative consensus on is the MitSubaru mash-up you see below.

This custom creation comes from a guy called Jonah, who has a habit of grafting the faces of certain cars onto the bodies of others. In September last year, he revealed his latest project in the form of a "blob-eye" Subaru WRX. His intention from the very beginning was conflict, with the caption to his post explaining that he hates Subarus and has only bought one "to piss all the Subi/Evo guys off."

Mission accomplished, we think, and a job well done too. With the fenders, hood, headlights, and front bumper of the Evo fitted to the SubEvo, as he calls it, the end result is strange yet interestingly cool.

Past projects have included an Infiniti G35 with the face of a Nissan 350Z (and vice-versa), along with an Infiniti G37 with a Nissan 370Z face swap. Each of these creations appears to have been finished rather well, and although they definitely have a certain level of oddity, the strange, incestuous parts-sharing gives each of these cars a new character that you won't find in a brand new car.

With the SubEvo forcing two arch enemies to cohabitate, one can't help but wonder if more platform sharing between brands, even those not traditionally associated with one another, may be worth pursuing further.
