Mitsubishi Lancer Evo Color Shifter

Name: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution
Scale: 1:64
Company: Hot Wheels
Base color: Silver gray
Color shift: Deep purple

Color shifters are not one of my favorite cars for two reasons. First you only get to the other color after an elaborate process of cooling (which most of the time ends up in freezing!). Secondly, I get quite worried about the life span of the car if shuttled between hot and cold!

This is the one and only color changer in my possession (till date!)

The 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, colloquially known as the Lancer Evo or Evo is a high-performance sedan manufactured by Mitsubishi Motors. There have been ten official versions to date, and the designation of each model is most commonly by a roman numeral.

The color shift is pretty simple. Place the car in the refrigerator for a while and it changes color to deep purple. The return to the original gray color does take time though. The windows are clear plastic which quite quite fogged up with the changing temperatures.

The Lancer does boast of quite a few decals on the hood and the sides though most of them get masked on the color shift.

Color Changer REAR
Tailights on the rear are left unpainted which lends a very bland appearance to the scale model as compared to the true prototype of this speedstar.
