1999 MITSUBISHI LANCER EVO V1 "TOMMI MAKINEN" (MY00)
Imported to Australia in 2007, it is complied 03/07 and has been previously registered and used in WA, before the current owner bought it to Adelaide.
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, also known as "Evo ", is a sports sedan based on the Lancer that was manufactured by Japanese manufacturer Mitsubishi Motors from 1992 until 2016. There have been ten official versions to date, and the designation of each model is most commonly a Roman numeral. All use two litre turbocharged inline four-cylinder engines and all-wheel drive systems
This example in Silver with black trim is the sixth evolution and bears the name of well known Finnish rally champion Tommi Makinen. His input into this version improved the performance of the Evo V1 in the following ways:-
It featured a different front bumper, Red/Black Recaro seats (with embossed T. Mäkinen logo), 17" white Enkei wheels, a leather Momo steering wheel and shift knob, a titanium turbine that spooled up more quickly, front upper strut brace, lowered ride height (with tarmac stages in mind), and a quicker steering ratio. Amongst other colours, the Evo VI came in either red (Tommi Mäkinen Edition only), white, blue, black or silver with optional special decals, replicating Tommi Mäkinen's rally car's colour scheme. This car is also sometimes referred to as an Evolution 6½, Evolution 6.5, or TME for short.
Powered by a 2.0 Litre turbo charged 4 cylinder engine, original specs suggest 206Kw and 373Nm of power and torque delivered via that 5 speed close ratio gearbox to all wheels, it makes this car a missile in the right hands. A perfect car for the road and it absolutely eats hill climbs and race tracks.
Considerable engine work was completed 12 months ago by a recognised Evo specialist garage in WA, receipts held to support that work. Part of the engine work completed was replacing the block with an Evo 7 block and a change of turbocharger.
A very tidy car just begging to be driven.
