Those were the days. When Mitsubishi won the world championship title in the World Rally Championship, there was of course also a homologation model for the road. This was the Lancer Evolution, also in a nutshell Evo called. Today's Mitsubishi drivers can only dream of such rally cars, because after ten generations, fun was over in 2014 Lancer Evolution. Nowadays, the brand with the three diamonds only produces a few SUV and small car models that are under the radar of the global automotive market and have almost completely disappeared into insignificance.
Special Evo VI with rarity value.
But they still exist, the classic Mitsubishi models, which also make the hearts of car fans beat faster, and one such example, namely the Mitsubishi Evo VI TME Edition with the serial number # 001, which dates back to 2000, will be on August 31 at The classic auctioned in Silverstone, England.
With a net estimate of up to £ 125.000 it could become one of the most expensive Mitsubishis of all time, and thus generate higher sales than the Evo VI, which was owned by Mitsubishi UK, which once changed hands for 100.000 pounds. This copy is not just the vehicle with the serial number #001but it's a real one Evo VI Tommi Mäkinen Editionimported by Ralliart UK itself. In addition, the vehicle comes with a neat checkbook, of course calibrated speedometerto reinforced battery and a Badge in the interiorwhich confirms the authenticity of the exclusive car. In addition, it has only run 11.000 miles (approx. 17.700 km) over the years and has only had two owners who cherished and looked after their very special treasure.
The vehicle was last changed in ownership in 2003. It was also returned to the Series performance brought back, since this is from the first owner using a larger turbocharger was increased. There are also many invoices that prove that all necessary maintenance and repairs were carried out in Mitsubishi specialist workshops.
In the interior everything remained standard.
Of course, the sporty interior remained untouched, so that this is a completely untampered original copy, which in our opinion belongs in the hands of collectors and is far too good for a gravel runway use.
The rally icon is powered by a 2-liter turbo gasoline engine with four cylinders.
Like every Evo, this one is also made by one 2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine fired with four cylinders. Full 280 hp and 380 Newton meters of maximum torque are available, so that the performance was exceptional for the conditions at the time. A four-door sedan that is in 5 seconds from 0 to 100 storms, that was something special at the beginning of the millennium. The maximum speed is 250 km/h, and the power is transmitted via a Five-speed manual permanently on all four wheels.
Our Summary about this unique Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI:
A car with the serial number # 001 is always something very special. The masterpiece of Japanese automotive art definitely belongs in loving collectors' hands or in an automobile museum. Incidentally, we think it's a shame that it is no new edition of the Evo, because the Japanese are now pursuing a different strategy.
