The Lancer EX2000 Turbo is an important model for Mitsubishi and its success in rallying, not only for achieving the podium in the 1982 1000 Lakes Rally, but because it laid the foundations for a team and a development that bore fruit in the middle from the 90s, with the entire saga of successful Lancer Evo Group A. A kit with great detail of the interior and the suspension system, and where in addition to its successful dimensions, the extensions of the wheel arches and the auxiliary headlights at the front draw attention, giving it that racing touch of vehicles from the mid-80s.

In light of its successes in the 1990s, it is difficult to believe that the Mitsubishi works team did not participate in its first European rally until 1981. The car used was the Lancer 2000 Turbo and the rally chosen for its debut was the tough Acropolis. An interesting fact, and unknown to many, is that Mitsubishi's test driver was none other than Walter Röhrl, the 1980 world rally champion, although he never drove the car in a rally.

Initially the European base used by Mitsubishi for the Lancer 2000 project was located in Austria, to move to England in 1983 under the guidance of Andrew Cowan, where the development of Mitsubishi's next rally car, the Starion 4WD prototype, ended even before the car was homologated.

The importance of the Lancer lies in the fact that Mitsubishi engineers began to experiment with extensive use of electronics to control both the engine and the turbocharger. Logically, this led to youthful failures from its debut, when both Andrew Cowan and Anders Kulläng had to retire at the Acropolis due to problems caused by the very high temperatures under the hood. But little by little reliability improved, and in the 1,000 Lakes rally both cars finished, with Anders Kulläng and Antero Laine as drivers. And to round off the season, Kulläng managed to place the Lancer inside the top 10 in the RAC Rally.

The best result for the Lancer 2000 Turbo was achieved by Pentti Airikkala in the 1.000 Lakes Rally in 1982 (third place), which had even more merit since the Lancer was a “conventional” car that tried to compete with the Audi Quattro and the Lancia 037. The 1982 season was a "mixed" year in which the old Groups 2 and 4 could still compete in the World Rally Championship along with the new Groups A and B machines. In 1983 Mitsubishi abandoned the World Championship momentarily, since the regulations of Group B, with a production requirement for the homologation of just 200 cars, did not fit with its philosophy, concentrating its efforts on long-distance events such as the Paris-Dakar.
