With a very heavy heart I must now sell my beloved Evo that I have owned since import in 2007. The base is a Lancer Evolution 5 GSR and although it has over 140k on the clock the significant modifications do not carry that mileage. This would make an ideal track or rally car for someone or just a road going monster as I still use it. With a fully forged engine, modified evo 9 turbo and nitrous oxide kit kit will give 460BHP and 540lbft of torque (dyno to prove). It has effectively x4 power settings:
  1. is Apexi controller off so on actuator giving factory 280BHP
  2. is Apexi setting A giving 360BHP
  3. is Apexi setting B giving 400BHP
  4. and when the 100shot of NoS is engaged you get the full 460 plus the amazing amount of torque.
The NoS is controlled by a standalone NoS controller ensuring the delivery is safe. The car is not polished every weekend, I use it for car shows to display the business and track days. It has had welding to the rear in the usual places these suffer corrosion but is generally sound. It currently has graphics on it for my business but these can be removed prior to sale if the buyer prefers. If asking price is paid all the spares listed below worth around £5k are included, if I am negotiated with then I will keep them and sell them separately. Here are the details:
  • 1998 Imported Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 5 GSR
  • VRN: P849 EVO (private plate sold with the car, worth £1500)
  • Annual Mileage: <2k
  • Power 460BHP

If you have read this far then please read a bit further as I won't be messed about with tyre kickers and morons who want to PX their Astra so these are my rules:
  1. Payment is bank transfer only.
  2. Any haggling on the price will mean the spares package is withdrawn, I won't go much lower than asking price anyway
  3. No part exchange unless it is an Audi RSQ5 and you don't want me to give you the other £30k!
  4. Test drive is with me driving - no exceptions. I will show you the full range of power options and capabilities of the car. If i stuff it in a hedge while we are doing that then it is my fault, I will not risk you doing it.
  5. Respect me and I will respect you.
I have a strong attachment to this car and am in no rush to sell.
