Mitsubishi states that tThe Evolution VII chassis is 50% more rigid than that of the Evolution VI. Given the 50kg weight rise that's the least Mitsubishi engineers could do. Chassis rigidity is the number one factor in any car's handling abilities and the Mitsubishi numbers are more than encouraging regarding their latest creation. Previous Evo versions already displayed extremely reinforced and rigid body but this time the increase in the car's size required a redesign of chassis reinforcements and the numerous new welding points are accompanied by partly seam welded steel sheets just like in full works race cars.
