Dazzling in Passion Red this rare Evo VI is aesthetically very similar to the Championship winning cars made famous by rally legend, Tommi Makinen. With just 212 examples produced in this colour it comes as no surprise that red TMEs have fast become the most sought after of all.
This particular example boasts an excellent finish throughout and is complete with the correct Works stripes and decals applied. The gleaming red hue has resisted the urge to fade, and presents without a single scuff or scrape. Most importantly both the body and underside remain entirely corrosion-free.
Inside, the car remains in superb condition. The special TME Recaro seats present with minimal signs of use; the cloth bolsters are usually the first areas to wear but these remain in excellent order with no rips or tears to note. The red-stitched Momo steering wheel presents absolutely as new, and the matching gear knob is similarly unworn.
The centre console is equipped with a desirable Mitsubishi three gauge unit, providing the driver with valuable feedback on battery voltage, oil temperature, and boost pressure. The rear seats are unmarked, as are the carpets, which are protected in the footwells by a set of Ralliart branded overmats. A WRC roof hatch has been professionally fitted at some point in the car's life, allowing additional ventilation when open. The rear luggage compartment features a carbon strut brace and is also finished with a Ralliart mat.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The mighty two-litre DOHC turbocharged engine produces 276hp from the factory and rockets the Lancer from 0-60 in well under five seconds. This examples benefits from an HKS Silent Power Exhaust and HKS Super SQV blow-off valve (fitted by SVA Imports, Kent). The engine bay presents in excellent condition, and is one of the cleanest of the Evo VI's we have seen here at 4 Star.
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 its original set of 17-inch Enkei wheels in white. All four alloys are in fantastic condition with zero curb marking or age-related wear to speak of. They are shod in a matching set of tyres, each with plenty of tread remaining. On test the Brembo brakes perform effortlessly, stopping the car quickly and in a straight line. The rear discs and pads were replaced at 79,039 miles.
The Lancer was first registered in March 2000. It resided in the dry climate of Japan until early 2015 when it was imported to the UK by SVA Imports Ltd, Kent. The car was subsequently purchased by its current keeper, and has been meticulously cared for ever since.
In August 2015 at 78,464 miles the car received a full service that included all fluids, spark plugs, plus timing and balance shaft belts. At this time an HKS exhaust and blow-off valve were fitted. It was serviced again in December 2015, July 2016, and March 2017.
