Just got my Foundation member kit. Fantastic stuff! Put my badge on grill of my Challenger looks great.
Great car with great history. However the location chosen is not the greatest. A car that killed its competitors in every Dakar entered should be showcased in a more challenging terrain
Very cool to see a review on quite honestly, a car I had never heard much about until now.
Back in day I borrowed a standard SWB 3,5 litre Shogun (as they were badged in the U.K. ) I just remember it felt like it had too much power for the chassis, and when in 2WD it would easily spin its back wheels. Always thought the EVO version looked cool and would like to try one one day. Definitely the most collectible 90’s SUV IMHO.
Great video. It’s nice to finally see an in depth look at one of these. I’m interested in the turbo comment though as I always thought they were a naturally aspirated 3.5 v6 mivec. Does anyone know how many were produced?
Leighton you are correct, they were all powered by a 3,5 mivec motor unique to the evo. When the mivec kicks in around 5300rpm it does have a bit of a turbo effect with the bonnet raising and revs suddenly climbing. Only 2500 were made in Red, White and Silver. Most were auto.
Love Sam’s passion! Feel like I should have a cigarette after one of his videos!!
