The Internet can easily lure one into fantasy quests such as finding unicorns (Ken Block might have a few Gymkhana tricks to help, but they do involve Hoonicorns). And you know what else can sometimes be as difficult to find as a unicorn? The perfect car girl.
Today we have a potential nominee for that title, so we're sharing the story with you - we're talking about Maria and her Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

To be more precise, we're inviting you to meet Maria Laura Gaston and the 500 hp Evo VIII she drives. Oh, and by the way, we won't waste your time by listing the mods of the JDM delight here, as she explains it all in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page.

Having the law school of Nova Southeastern University covering the professional part of her resume, Maria is here to share her automotive passion with us and we must admit such an all-wheel-drive monster makes for one hell of a recommendation.

It's perfectly normal to get extremely curious about the life of such a driver, which is why the clip also includes Maria's Instagram account (you'll have to handle the typing yourself, though, so nobody else can be held responsible for the potential distraction).

Does the girl make us of the turbo-four's resources? Of course she does and it seems pranking her loved ones is just one of the ways in which she covers this chapter.

As for the background that led to such a rolling project, Maria explains she owes a lot of her dedication to the time spent playing racing video games.

And while the thorough tuning process of this Lancer might not exactly help its collectible value, we can't help but think any Evo out there has grown in value now that Mitsubishi has been sold - forget the value-for-money assets of the performance icon, the model in question, a Final Edition Evo X, was auctioned off for charity, managing to grab a hefty $76,400.

P.S.: In case you're curious about the hue covering this Evo, you should know the Mitsu is dressed in Oyster Grey.
