Yes but to the US theres no 8 at the end, just evolution. It does kind of suck no AYC/ACD or a 6 speed gearbox :(

The sole importer of street legal Evolution 7's is Evolution Imports in california, a Euro Spec VII goes for $39,995 after US DOT legalization.

I got a ride in an RHD Evo VII a year ago since the guy who owns it works for ralliart, and used to live in my old neighborhood. That car was blazing fast.

Only way ill ever get into a US Spec Evo is when we get Yaw Controll and the Active Center Diff. The electronic differentials is what makes the Evo handle like a badass out of hell!

I saw some picture of the new EVO. It's pretty good looking but those back lights are terrible they look like altezzas/ricers.

Still has pretty good HP around 280-290! 0-60 4.9 seconds imagine the mods you can do! It's still the watered down version but its nice to affordable fast cars coming to the U.S.(even though i still cant afford a WRX arrrr! but you know what i mean).

I still perfer the WRX.

Im pretty sure those wheels were made by MOMO for AR. All I know is they are 17 x 7.5's not sure what the offset on them are.

That's the GTA I'm talking about...
There is another kind of wheel that it comes with... the one on the 147 GTA and the one on the 156 GTA Wagon

The first time I saw in on CAR (magazine), it has that RIM in Gun Metal color on the 156 GTA.

Anyway, the rim in the picture above is nice too... i think they're the OZ Superturismo Corsa
