Evolution 8 MR Road/Track car

NEW REDUCED PRICE for limited time.

Now SOLD

Here I have a very reluctant sale, my well loved Mitsubishi Evo 8 MR road/track car. It's a UK car number 66 off the production line.

Itís been in my possession for all but 8 months from new so I can tell you the whole history of the car.
If you are looking for a proper track weapon that will still be a well mannered car on the road then read on.

The Chassis has done 125,000 miles and has a few stone chips and scratches and the rear arche has a little paint chipped, there is no rust at all and the underside has been looked after very well as is washed regularly and sprayed with light oil, especially the Nitron suspension looked after and is like new the material on these is very good quality.

Itís taken us on road trip holidays-euro trips and many track events including over the years, sprint competitions-track days-many Nurburgring trips .
It's currently running about 440hp on 1.4 bar and 480 on high at 1.9 bar making a very smooth wide power band from 2.5 k revs to 7.8 k rev cut.

The car had a complete engine re-build 2 years ago, paperwork to support this.
Here is the full spec sheet.

ENGINE- 2L LONG ROD complete rebuild at 117,000 miles- Built by MG Auto motorsport
Kelford 272 cams.
EXEDY TRIPLEPLATE COVERSION KIT. ID 1050 X 11MM BLUE ADAPTOR TOP
BRIDGEWAY BILLET 4340 I BEAM ROD SET-WISECO1400HD FORGED PISTON KIT
ALC RACE BIG END BEARING SET- ARP L19 HEAD STUD KIT-ARP MAIN STUD KIT
ALC MAIN BEARINGS ETC
HKS 5 LAYER HIGH PERFORMANCE HEAD GASKET-RS INLET VALVE SET-RS EXHAUST VALVE SET- CLEVITE 77 TRI-METAL ROD BEARING SET-CLEVITE THRUST WASHERS
ARP MAIN STUD KIT- FERREA EXHAUST VALVE STEM SEAL AND INTAKE VALVE SEAL
FULLY PORTED AND POLISHED CYLINDER HEAD-ENGINE BALLANCED.
TURBO- HYBRID STANDARD FRAME WITH 23 G WHEEL ONLY 9 MONTHS OLD.
PERRIN INTERCOOLER £600
NEW RADIATOR FITTED 2 YEARS AGO
BATTERY RELOCATED TO BOOT

TRANS

RS REAR DIFF RECENTLY RE BUILT WITH NEW CROWN WHEEL PINION 14 MONTHS AGO
CENTRE DIFF AYC PUMP REBUILT 2 YEARS AGO
CENTRE DIFF REMAPED FOR BETTER TURN IN- ELIMINATES THAT EVO UNDERSTEER.
5 SPEED GEAR BOX WITH GSR RATIOS ĖTHE BEST ALROUND RATIOS IN MY OPINION-RE BUILT AND OVERHAULED 6 MONTHS AGO BY CPP MOTOR DEVELOPMENTS

SUSPENSION CHASSIS

NITRON 1 WAY SUSPENSION WITH CAMBER-CASTER ADJUSTMENT
FULLY POLLYBUSHED
FRONT CAMBER AT 2.5 DEG- REAR CAMBER AT 2 DEG 0 TOW
BRAKES Ė ARE D2 8 PISTON CALIPER BIG BRAKE KIT WITH ALUMINIUM BELLS REAR ARE KSPORT 6 PISTONCALLIPER WITH ALUMINIUM BELLS. CARBOTECH XP10 BRAKE PADS FRONT AND REAR.
FRONT AND REAR HUBS HAVE ALL BEEN REPLACED OVER THE LAST 4 YEARS OR SO WITH GENUINE MITSUBISHI HUBS.

Interior
SPARCO EVO 2 PLUS- COMPETITION FRONT SEATS HARNESS BAR WITH 4 POINT HARNESS
1,75 FIRE EXTINGUISHER AIR BAGS REMOVED AIR CON REMOVED 320 MM OMP STEERING WHEEL FITTED
ALL REMAINING STANDARD FEATURES RETAINED

EXTERIOR
REAR GT CARBON SPOILER CARBON BONNET.

MONGOOSE STAINLESS EXHAUST WITH Dcat PIPE 98DB STATIC. STILL HAVE THE CAT AND IS ALMOST NEW.

WHEELS- ULTRALITES ATAC 2 18 x 8

SECURITY- It has the standard manufacturer alarm. It has a tracker fitted but buyer will need to register it.
I have spent thousands on this car over the years to keep everything mechanical up to running perfectly, and over 12k spent on engine/transmission in the last couple of years.

Tyres have plenty of wear on them as do the brakes pads and discs, Also I have 2 sets of spare wheels, Ultralite wheels and Toyo r 888 semi slick, and.Rota torques in white 18 x 8.5, with Pirelli trofeos semi slick, so you have a choice when buying the car. The spare wheels can be negotiated re the sale if required.

The Private reg plate will also be included in the sale, worth £1,000

Also the engine has just had a bottom end re build at CPP Motor Developments,with new Crank and Rods Bearings etc, all relevant paperwork to support this.

Negative points.

I only have one key fob as the other one got water damage some years back.

There is a small dint and scuff in the rear offside bumper where a taxi driver reversed into it a few years ago the witness didn't get full reg. we heated the plastic and the dint came out but you can still see slightly.

The driver's seat has some wear from sliding in and out on the right bolster with some lining tear, could do with reupholstering but I didn't get round to it.

Remember this is a 14 year old car so cosmetically it will show some wear, but the important stuff has been kept up to the point where the new owner can put miles on the car without the worry of expensive bills, it wants for nothing at the moment.
If you want a very well set up road track car- Bridge to Gantry Nordschleife 7.50s or Donnington park 1.19s with good road manners for those trips etc then this is the ideal car.
I was planning to do some competitions and and more road trips but sadly for personal reasons have to let it go.

Don't waste your time or mine if you are looking for a car with unblemished paintwork,that will probably cost you several thousand pounds later in hidden mechanical faults.

The car is based in Derbyshire.

Reduced price now at £14,550 for limited time as may keep and store away for now.

PM for more info regards viewing of the car, and negotiations and i will PM you with my contact details.

SERIOUS INTEREST ONLY PLEASE.

Car NOW SOLD

Cheers Tom, Yes would love to keep it, especially the level the car is now mechanically.
Financial reasons mainly.
They really are the most versatile performance car bang for buck out there, and now becoming a real classic.

Still for sale ! Really can't believe my car has had no interest what so ever, seeing some of the evos on here for sale at silly prices.
One i noticed recently and 19 years old sold for around 12k i think "good honest add " saying needed some chassis rot sorting" Mine has done some mileage but has no rot what so ever and one owner for 14 years, Surly that has to stand for something. Hey but maybe there is a buyer just round the corner.
All i can say is come and view the car and see the value, Its as smooth as! with no noises rattles or vibrations. Rant over
