The 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII is one of major cars driven by Brian O’Conner and Tej Parker in 2003 film “2 Fast 2 Furious”. Following their debriefing on the situation with Carter Verone and meeting Monica Fuentes, Brian takes the 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII 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.
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.
The 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII is one of the few protagonist cars that is not destroyed on-screen.
