2000 MITSUBISHI LANCER Evo VI Tommi Makinen - £33,495
FOR SALE: A Special Colour Pack TME with just 45k miles from new.
Passion Red paintwork with Special Colour Pack (SCP), TME embroidered Recaro front seats, 18-inch Compomotive alloy wheels in white, Front and side airdams accented in white, Twin-wing rear spoiler with high-mount stop lamp, Specially tuned suspension, Brembo brakes, Electric-folding door mirrors, Digital climate control AC, Electric windows, Power steering, Momo leather steering wheel with red stitching, Gear shift gaiter with red stitching, Front airbags, Remote central locking, Ralliart sunshade decal, Marlboro spoiler decals, Front and rear mudflaps, MLR carpet mats, Pioneer head unit, A-pillar boost gauge, Ralliart hard pipe kit, Carbon fibre plug cover, Spare key, Alarm.
The gleaming Passion Red paintwork looks superb alongside the factory-correct works stripes and additional white accents to the lower body. Visually similar to the Championship winning cars made famous by rally legend Tommi Makinen, it comes as no surprise that Special Colour Pack TMEs like this one have fast become the most sought after of all. The paintwork appears in great condition all round and boasts a deep, uniform shine following a full machine polish. Aside from the usual light dusting of stone chips to the bumper, headlights, and leading edge of the bonnet there are relatively few blemishes to report. There is no corrosion to the bodywork with all trim, plastics, and decals remaining in fine fettle throughout.
The specially-embroidered TME Recaro seats present in fantastic original condition; the velour bolsters are usually the first areas to wear and fade but here they remain in excellent order with no rips or damage to report. Commonly worn items such as the dash and centre console are free from any significant marking, and the original Momo steering wheel still remains in great shape. A discreetly mounted A-pillar boost gauge provides the driver with additional feedback while the accompanying turbo timer executes a strict cool-down procedure after every drive.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The turbocharged 2-litre rockets the Evo from 0-60 mph in little over 4 seconds. 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.
The engine bay of this example is in good order with no signs of damage or poor repair. The car has been routinely maintained at close mileage intervals in recent years; the latest serviced was carried out in September 2019 at the current mileage of 45k.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The Evo sits on striking six-spoke Compomotive alloys, all in perfect unmarked condition and shod in a brand new set of Goodyear tyres. Stopping power comes from glossy red Brembo calipers front and rear, effortless bringing the car to a halt quickly and in a straight line.
This rare Special Colour Pack Tommi Makinen was first registered in March 2000. It was imported from Japan into Ireland back in 2005 and has remained with the same keeper since 2008. The current owner has had the car regularly serviced under his ownership (a total of 9 times) despite covering little over 6k miles in the last 11 years. The last service has only recently been carried out and all four tyres have just been replaced.
