Evo V (5) GSR '98 Silver 375bhp


Hi, here we have for sale my V. Located near Bournemouth.

Email [email protected] or 07875 601209.

Sorry for the long write up but you should know all the details by the end of it!

1998 Mitsubishi Evo 5 GSR
Satellite Silver
70,000 miles
375 bhp at 1.5 bar


I bought the car in Feb 2012 from a fellow female enthusiast & MLR member. She bought it as a fresh import in March 2010, from SVA Imports. I am therefore only the 2nd UK owner.

Genuine reason for sale, I'll be buying an Evo X in the not so distant future.

12 months MOT, runs until 31st January 2018. No advisories!

2 keys & 2 alarm fobs.

Brand new radiator fitted in Jan 2017.

Regularly serviced in both my ownership, & with the previous owner. If you can read Japanese, there are even servicing stamps in the original Jap service book! See below for the full servicing schedule.

I am very mechanically sympathetic, I warm up & cool down the car every time I use it. It has never been on track in the UK, it has been used mainly as a show car. It is mapped on, and I always use, Shell V-Power.

Full AYC pump rebuild by RG Motorsport in Nov 2016. The Cambelt, Balance belt & tensioner were also done at the same time.

A full underseal was done in July 2011 & during the Nov 2016 trip to RG Motorsport, Rich (the owner) could not believe how clean the underneath still is. He took several pictures for me so that I could show potential buyers. I'm sure he would be happy to talk to you about the car as he checked it over fully for me.

Paintwork wise it is in excellent condition, as I use it as my show car. There is a barely noticeable dent in the driver's side C pillar which was there when I bought it. I do have it professionally detailed once a year meaning clay bar, machine polish & full wax sealant. The interior is also in great condition, just some slight wear on the driver's side seat bolster. The rear washer & de-mister do not work although as it's never bothered me I have never investigated why, may be something quite simple.

In April 2013 the balance belt snapped (a common issue on these) causing some valve damage. Luckily I was flush at that time & as I was looking for extra power anyway, I had the engine upgraded to an Evo VIII, & the turbo to an Evo IX (as that's the latest engine you can put in the V's.) This was done by Veysport (the same Evo specialist that has serviced the car since I bought it.) The remap was then completed by Indigo-GT. The engine I fitted had 38,000 miles on the clock when it went into the car meaning that it has now done a total of 70,000 miles. The shell has done just over 100,000 miles.

The car will be sold on the standard Oz Racing 17" rims which I use as my winter wheels. Tyres (Goodyear Eagle F1's) were new before winter 2015 & have therefore only done around 8 months on the road. The wheels themselves do have a few scuffs due to the fact they are only used in the bad weather months. If you would like the perfect condition 18" XXR custom carbon dipped rims I use for my summer wheels, also with good tyre thread (Falken 452'S), there will be a small extra charge.

Hi Lisa

Was the Bonnet lacquered or just plain dipped? Just wondering how easy to remove if desired?
Hi, it was painted gloss black, carbon dipped then lacquered so not much chance of removal I'm afraid. It would just need repainting.
