550hp EVO 8

Looking to get my own place so unfortunately the car has to go. It's been an absolute pleasure in the time I've owned it, so it will be sad to see it go!

Mitsubishi Evo 8 34000 miles

This is a very special car. I bought it two years ago from a local guy who had pampered it totally, it didn't (and still doesn't) go out in the rain. It is immaculate in its presentation with not a mark on the bodywork or interior, and you could literally eat your evening meal of the engine bay! It should be noted that the engine has only completed around 2000 miles since undergoing a full rebuild to the specification below at a cost of £15000!

The car has been very heavily modified, mainly by the local company MG Auto's of Ripley, https://www.mgautos.uk.com, who are quite happy to go through the specification and condition of the car with potential owners, ask for Dave (the owner if calling about the car). The modifications have been done to a very high standard with only the very best of components. Please go through the list below and look at the specification;

2.3 litre fully forged long rod bottom end built for 800bhp (presently running around 550bhp) at 1.75/2.1 bar
Manley balanced crank and con rods
Wiseco pistons
ARP studs
Balance shaft removal kit
New oil pump and new Mocal oil cooler
Brian Crower beehive springs
Shunk 2 cams 272
MG Auto's headwork by Tim Radley
Ferrea valves
Turbo Technics TT205B turbo
Injector Dynamics 1000cc injectors
AMS fuel rail
Sard Pressure regulator
MG Auto's custom exhaust manifold
Exedy Twin Plate clutch and flywheel
Milltek decat exhaust system
HDI intercooler
BC coilovers
New DBA front brake disks and pads 4000 T3 series
Alloy front and rear strut braces
Carbon front splitter
Carbon side skirts
Carbon vortex generator
Carbon Evo 9 rear diffuser and bumper
Carbon rear spoiler
Carbon interior parts
OMP WRC-R seats and 4 point harness
Harness bar
Wheels 18x8.75 XXR 527 alloys in Black Chrome
Tyres Federal 595 RSR 245/35 18's in new condition
Just also had a new power steering pump and radiator to suit new custom manifold.

The private plate on the car is included in the sale.

The car is presently SORN'd and stored safely and will be serviced and MOT'd prior to be sold at the asking price. We would strongly suggest looking at the car prior to purchase to understand its quality, certainly not the normal rubbish often seen. Any test drives will be by the owner only I'm afraid!

Price: £22,500.00 (Open to sensible offers.)

First to see will buy.

I was going to buy it before when it was last for sale, but the owner was holding out for maximum he could get for it, telling me that every offer i offered he had just been offered more etc haha, it did look nice though.

I worked with the owner for 5 years and he never really wanted to sell, perhaps that's why he was always holding out for top money!

Nice pics too!

This is how I remembered it! Looked gorgeous with the carbon against the red. Love those Bride seats as well!
