Every year, the folks at Mitsubishi Motors do something that very few (if any) other car companies do: They dedicate a day to the people who love the Mitsubishi product. Right in their own backyard, they not only acknowledge the aftermarket enthusiast segment, but they also embrace the tuner crowd. As we pulled up to the ’12 MOD, we were amazed at how many cars had shown up for the event. There were Evos, Eclipses, 3000GTs, and Galants as far as the eye could see and, of course, there were the less common 3 Star cars as well. Something for everyone was in store.

The most interesting vehicle at MOD this year was undoubtedly the Pikes Peak Hillclimb i-MiEV Evolution. This car is (loosely) based on the electric people mover that Mitsubishi has had a lot of success with so far in the U.S. market. The race version is a bit different, though, carrying three electric motors and producing about 320 combined horsepower. The body has been lengthened and widened, and the power is transferred to all four wheels via Mitsubishi’s well-respected AWD technology (the standard i-MiEV is a rear-engine, rear-drive layout). Will it be enough to make it up the hill in one piece? It certainly seems to be.
