The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII is major car driven by Brian O'Conner and Tej Parker in 2 Fast 2 Furious.

History

2 Fast 2 Furious

Following their debriefing on the situation with Carter Verone and meeting Monica Fuentes, Brian takes the Lancer after Roman Pearce claims the 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GTS for his own. Monica accompanies Brian in the car on their way to Verone's mansion. Unbeknownst to either Roman or Brian, the Lancer and the Eclipse were bugged with tracking devices that allowed agents Bilkins and Markham to monitor their every move when they did not report them directly. During Roman and Brian's "audition" to become Verone's car, their cover was almost blown when Markham assumed they were fleeing custody with the Lancer and the Eclipse.[3]

Roman and Brian brought the bugged cars to Tej Parker's garage in the hopes that the mechanic, Jimmy, would know how to remove the bugs. However, Jimmy summarized the complexicity of the cars internal systems would make it difficult. Roman and and Brian continued to use the Eclipse and Lancer until they were able to win Korpi's and Darden's Dodge Challenger and Yenko Camaro.[3]

Prior to arriving to the warehouse to switch the Lancer and Eclipse with the muscle cars, the Lancer is tagged with a [[ESD Harpoon Launcher] during the Miami police's pursuit of Roman and Brian. With the help of one of Verone's men, Enrique, Brian is able to pull the harpoon off of the side of the Lancer's frame before the EMP can disable it completely. During the car scramble, Tej drove the Lancer and, accompanied by Suki Roman's Eclipse, lured the police away from Brian and Roman's activities. Both Tej and Suki were arrested by the police for evading the authorities.[3]

Specifications

All but one of the Lancer Evolution VII's used in 2 Fast 2 Furious were Mitsubishi Lancers made to look like the Evolution VII. One of them was a left-hand-drive Evolution VII imported from Europe.

Trivia

  • The Evolution VII's color scheme, body kit, and overall look were a deliberate nod to Paul Walker's 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse from The Fast and the Furious.
  • The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII is one of the few protagonist cars that is not destroyed on-screen.
  • Because the Mitsubishi Evolution was not introduced to America until 2003, when Mitsubishi introduced the Evolution VIII, a 2002 Evolution VII was used, fitted with a different front fascia as well as Evolution VIII tail lights.[references needed]
  • All but one of the Evolution VII used in the movies were Mitsubishi Lancers made to look like the Evo; one of them, however, was a left-hand-drive Evo imported from Europe.
