Juha Salo and Mika Stenberg of Finland and Mitsubishi Ralliart Finland drive their Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 9, N/4, during Leg 1 of Rally Finland 2008 on August 1, 2008 in Jyvaskyla, Finland.
Legislation in the United States currently mandates physical rear-view mirrors on the outside wings of vehicles to provide rearward vision, but other regions are already using rear-view cameras instead of old fashioned mirrors to maximize aerodynamic efficiency. There have been many different and sometimes weird attempts at reinventing, redesigning, and reimagining wing mirrors, and we know our audience will celebrate the weirdest wing mirrors with us, so weigh in with your opinion!
The Shrek-ear wing mirrors on the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution always stand out in my mind as some of the weirdest looking wing mirrors in automotive history. I remember the first time I saw them during Jeremy Clarkson’s track test of the Evo VIII FQ 400 and never forgot about them. Especially on a compact car like the Lancer platform, you don’t need massive mirrors to compensate for giant blind spots on bulkier vehicles, so I can’t imagine these little mirrorettes caused many visibility issues.
