End of Group A
decoration
Final evolution of Mitsubishi Lancer has been dubbed as Evo 6.5, mainly by the public. And to be precise, it was not a Group A car unlike Mitsubishi claimed. Already previous version was modified in ways that Group A rules did not allow. However, after asking permission from rival teams, FIA agreed to allow Mitsubishi certain freedoms.

Evo 6.5 was quite similar to late specification Evo VI, main differences being longer suspension travel at rear and some changes in engine internals, all modifications made under FIA special permit.
