SOLD: A rare Evo VI Tommi Makinen Edition, with just 48k miles and factory stripes.

With its glossy red paintwork, this rare Evo VI is aesthetically very similar to the Championship winning cars made famous by rally legend Tommi Makinen. Not only do these special editions feature different front bumpers to the regular Evo VI's, but also white 17-inch Enkei wheels for that authentic 'tarmac stage' finish.
This example retains almost all-original paintwork and still presents with its factory stripes down both sides. The gleaming red hue has resisted the urge to fade, and is complete without a single scuff or scrape. Furthermore the body and underside remain entirely corrosion-free, with all trim around the car in excellent order too.
Inside, this example is near immaculate. The Tommi Makinen Edition Recaro seats present with almost no signs of any use; the cloth bolsters are usually the first areas to wear, however in this car they remain spotless. The red-stitched gear knob presents as new, with the dash and fascia in very good order as well.
The carpets show zero signs of any fading, and rear the seats appear almost unused. Without any of the common 'upgrades' or modifications this example retains a sophisticated and original finish, still featuring the factory Mitsubishi cassette player.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The mighty two-litre DOHC turbocharged engine produces 276hp and rockets the Lancer from 0-60 in well under five seconds. The engine bay presents in excellent condition, and is one of the cleanest of the Evo VI's we have seen.
The five-speed manual gearbox still feels tight, and the all-wheel-drive system provides enough confidence to power though corners at speed. Despite its high-performance credentials, the Evo VI still drives with typical Japanese-car ease; operating smoothly at low speeds before launching into ferocious acceleration at anything above 4000 rpm.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The car sits on the original set of white 17-inch Enkei wheels, as standard on each Tommi Makinen Edition. All four alloys are in impeccable condition having just been professionally refurbished to a very high standard.
The wheels are shod in a matching set of directional tyres. They are complemented by red Brembo calipers all round, which also present as new showing no signs of any discolouration or age-related wear.
First registered in March of 2000 this Tommi Makinen has covered a mere 77,022km to date, which equates to just 47,859 miles. Having previously resided in a dry climate, the car has been recently imported into the UK where all duties and taxes have since been paid. Present in the history file is an original Tommi Makinen Edition sales brochure, complete with all page inserts.
