Tommi Makinen Evo 6-5 in Scotia White for sale

Vehicle Description

UK Tommi Makinen Evo 6-5 in Scotia White for sale. It is what now seems hard to find one of the 250 Official Ralliart UK cars no 37/250 first registered by The Colt Car Company in May of 2001 which I purchased from Marshalls of Cambridge in July 2001. I used the car regularly when I first bought it and it was serviced by Marshalls as per Ralliart the last service by Marshalls being Dec 15th 2005 at 54469 miles. Unfortunately on Christmas eve just 9 days later a piston broke which led to me having the current forged engine built. The car still has its original block so still has the unusual feature of matching engine and chassis numbers!!.
The car was not back on the road until late July 2006 and has not really been used much since which can be seen from the MOT certificates and was not used at all between 30/09/10 and 20/09/14 when it was next taxed until late October of the same year. I have all tax discs and MOTs.
With this car now being 15yrs old and a UK car, which are becoming harder to find one cannot expect it to be rust free as expected with the many imports from Japan.
Whilst yes you will find rust underneath the car which is perfectly normal for a car of this age which in itself is unusual as you don’t see many old cars still on the road now and yes you are looking at a 15yr old car which must be considered when viewing!!, I can guarantee whilst yes you will find rust,but only surface rust you will not find any rot as experienced by many who have bought what looks like a “”mint car””only to discover a horror story later. Yes I could spend three weeks stripping, scraping, shot blasting, stone chipping and respraying the underside to look like new only to be questioned many times as to what was/am I trying to hide so I personally feel it better to offer this car in the its genuine condition giving its new owner the opportunity to put his own mark on it. In 2008 I went completely through the car discovering all those hidden, unexpected places road dirt and salt could hide away and slowly eat your pride and joy at its pleasure undiscovered for years eventually giving you the fright of your life.
When the engine was built and put on Autronics it was mapped by Mark Shead.
The car has recently returned from NR Autosport where Nick gave it a service and thorough going over replacing the fuel pump, injectors, boost controller solenoid, set up the boost controller and tweaked the map to his satisfaction at a cost of £1450
The wheels are undamaged although would benefit from being refurbished along with the rear bumper being repainted as it is slightly off white compared with the splitter which has recently been painted. Yes i could of had these done before putting "Edna"up for sale but i feel it more appropriate to offer her to her new owner in her original condition as opposed to "just tarted up to sell"

Since MOT the car has been to Snetterton twice and Santa Pod once, at time of MOT on 01/08/16 the mileage was 74,539 so without looking its around 75,000 but probably just under. As for power to be honest it was mapped after rebuild by Mark Shead who quoted it should be somewhere around 430/430,easilly able to achieve the 500 mark with the build spec with a turbo and cam upgrade but i have never personally felt the need or had the desire to go any further with it or put it on the dyno as i was happy with how Mark mapped it.

If I hadn't put a deposit down on a car earlier this month this would have certainly peaked my interest.

Best of luck with the sale!

Thanks, it looks very nice. Personally I can't understand why people would mod and map a car but not dyno it, but each to their own Sincere best wishes for the sale.

Thank you for your kind words with ref to the sale "Strange Days". I appreciate your view, opinion and curiosity as to why one would mod, map and then not put the car on the dyno but as i said i was happy with what Mark Shead achieved and if you note when the rebuild was done, 2006, when i joined the MLR 2004 and how long i have owned the TME from new in 2001 (when it was a very rare occasion one would see an Evo VI on the road) you will understand that i am someone who was in the very fortunate position to be able to afford to buy a car of that value at the time who bought, drove and enjoyed the car but was never enticed into the "how much power is your Evo making, oh mine has more power than yours" scenario.

I agree, on the flip side though it may be worth considering a power run on a dyno to aid your sale? It looks a lovely car and without the usual +10 owners, it is certainly one I'd be looking at if I didn't have 2 already
ps. love the yellow calipers!!!!!

I understand that sentiment entirely!

Personally I would do a dyno run for my own curiosity, but that's just me.

I think as has been mentioned above, it would definitely benefit your sale to have a dyno printout, of course driving the car IS the most important thing, if it feels good to the driver then that's all that matters, however when advertising it a nice dyno sheet will definitely entice more people.

just my 2p

To me I wouldn't mind the lack of power info, I'd be buying purely in condition, history and the way it drives. A dyno figure can be fudged anyway so what's the point? It proves nothing other than some bragging rights down the pub.

Agreed, but to others it can be an important factor in buying a car. When selling a car I personally believe it's important to appeal to as wide an audience as possible, and in my honest opinion a dyno printout whatever the power will help broaden the appeal. If you buy a modded performance car, then surely you want to know how it performs..

Anyway, I've said enough, I'm gonna stop clogging up this thread

I didn't run it John i just took it up to the Jap Finale based on going many times in the past although not for 6 years to put it up for sale but it turned out to be a waste of time. I got there just before lunch on the Sunday and they wouldn't let me through to the "cars for sale section". This used to be a well attended event when we have gone to it in the past, absolutely packed but clearly not anymore.
