"When we first released our TE37 THE WORLD Tee merch and posted on instagram, Ryan was one of the first few to respond "Yes!!!". He ended up picking up his order at HCE meet in October and since then we just kept bumping into each other, he was at Snowfoam event, he displayed his car at our stand on November HCE event, and now he's onboard as our feature photographer.

Well here it is, Ryan's lady in red!" - Alfa Rein


  • Tell us about your car, what it is, how long you had it for and why you bought it? 
    It's a Red Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII GSR, and I've had it for a year and a half now.I previously had a 2019 Audi S3 and got bored of the car and a good friend had his evo parked up for a long time so I offered to buy it as soon as I sold my Audi.

  • Which mod were you happy with the most and why?
    The Evo's gone through a fair few iterations but I think when I first had the coilovers and aircups installed, and having it as low as it is, that was the base for everything. 
    But right now the new front bar, lip and splitter really took the car to a new level.

  • Can you share with us some performance figures, like power it makes etc?
    The car is flex fuel tuned by Benchmark Solutions, 290kw at all 4 wheels on E85, 466Nm torque on the stock internals. Enough fun for street driving.

  • What's next for your car?
    Getting it ready for Black Label which is just sorting out some minor paint imperfections.
    Thinking about refreshing the interior headliner as well.

  • If you could give one piece of advice to someone who's new to the car modifying world, what would it be?
    Do it once, do it right. Don't cheapen out on things that could have you coming back to the same place for repairs.
