    Pretty sure that’s an Evolution Piston, not a IV P

    The IV-P looks like the ‘old school’ Lancairs:

    The Evo has got the funky round windows:

    (The second gallery is the Evolution turbine, not piston, but it’s the same airplane but with one of those messy engines with all the parts wiggling back and forth instead of a making nice smooth pirouettes under the cowl)

    Personally, I prefer the looks of the IV to the Evo, but the performance numbers on the Evolution are just mind blowing.
