    Caffeine and Octane - EVO

    Anyone in the area see this car in person? Picture taken from friends who attended.
    Any idea if this is a local to Atlanta/GA?

    Possibly a tribute? Looks like stock / small 201.034 brakes up front.

    I thought only the 201.036 had the wild bodywork, and all 201.036 had the Brembo front calipers?

    The least they could have done was take 500E/E500 brakes which are bolt on.

    I sent this car a few years ago to that general area....corner markers don't match, but possibly the same car.

    Although this was based on a euro 190E 16V it had a Mosselman Turbo!

    Re: Caffeine and Octane - EVO

    Both cars have red calipers, but I can't tell for sure if they are the same. First ones look like single-piston floating calipers, with non-drilled rotors. Jeff's car clearly had 4-piston calipers, with drilled rotors. Of course, someone could have changed the brakes...

    Thanks all. I was almost feeling old and out-of-touch if another EVO was in indeed in Atlanta without my knowing it. Not all are fans of the amber corners, that's easy to explain. Brakes? Hmm.

    Not only the brakes don't match but also the shape of the arches, front splitter etc

    This is the same car. I've seen it recently at Johnathans shop. I'll be marrying a 201 with a C36 this fall. I'll be blessed with Jono and Pauls help there. It will be created in the Evo I style. I wanted to attend but was up late Saturday re - assembling.
