History

Imported when new by Warrender Cars, this stunning Evolution VI was registered by Warrander Cars on registration, and then remained with the original owner until 2016.
We purchased the car, and the vehicle was purchased from ourselves under traders temporary registration – thus not adding a registered keeper and as such this example remains as just one previous owner on the V5.

The car was kept garaged whilst with the original owner, and only came out for the odd Sunday drive when the weather was suitable.
Since then, the car was placed in to professional storage where it remained until we collected the car.

Full Mitsubishi Service History until 2016 when the car had a full service carried out by Automotive Performance Tuning (World renowned Evo specialist).
Full MOT history is also present, and the mileage is fully warranted.

Body & Paintwork

The Icelle Blue paintwork on this Evo VI is all original and in great order.
Zero corrosion on the vehicle, and zero dents or dings.

This car has clearly been cherished throughout its life, and also kept away from any bad weather – having been garaged its entire life.

All badges and decals are original, as are all the lights (including the unmarked fog lights).
All glass is original, and again is superb condition, with no damage.

The spoiler is without any cracking around the base (this can be a common issue on these vehicles), and the sideskirts/front splitter are without any damage either.

The black door window surrounds are still a nice solid black and have not faded as is often the case, and incredibly all bumper fixings are still gold, the zinc plating still being present which is almost unheard of on a original Evo VI.

This brings us to the underside of the car, which can very often be a real nightmare with these vehicles, as they do suffer from corrosion, mainly due to the lack of protection on them when they are shipped across from Japan. This example is simply incredible, and totally original.
Upon first purchase when the car was new, the under side was sprayed with black protection wax and has remained this way until we purchased the car in 2016, when we decided to undertake the tedious task of removing all underseal, and the shell is literally like new!

All brackets & bolts still maintain the original gold zinc plating, the fuel filler neck is totally as new (a common corrosion issue on these cars), as is the AYC casing, along with all the brake lines, fuel lines, all suspension arms, exhaust etc etc….

The underside and box sections have all now been protected using clear Dinitrol treatments, to give long term protection and peace of mind, whilst still allowing the fantastic condition to be seen.

Interior & Trim

What can we say….

The seats are literally unmarked, steering wheel & gear knob unmarked, original Mitsubishi floor mats are still in place and show no signs of wear.
The carpets, and kickplates are all unmarked, the rear seats look as if they have never carried a passenger…

‘As new’ is a term which is often over used, but this car warrants that term without doubt.
Anybody who is familiar with these vehicles will appreciate how easily the interiors wear, and will appreciate just how rare it is to find an example like this.

All gauges work just as they should do, the dash has never had any extra gauges fitted and is in perfect order, the door cards are perfect, with no lifting of the material at all.
Rear seats show no signs of fading at the top (a very common issue with these).

Engine

Completely as Mitsubishi intended…..

Zero modification have been made to the engine/power of this example, even the air filter is a correct Mitsubishi air filter.
Runs perfectly, no tapping when cold (or hot), and the car drives very nicely with a lovely progressive power delivery through the rev range.

Absolutely no smoking, either on idle, on boost or on over run.

The engine bay itself present very well, again all brackets & bolts still retain the original zinc plating, and absolutely no corrosion anywhere.
To see an Evo VI engine bay this original, and in this condition is almost un heard of now.

Running Gear

All running gear is in perfect order, all suspension items are without any corrosion and still display the original labelling from factory.

Brake caliper’s are unrestored, and still bright red with no lacquer peel at all – might we add the brakes perform very well indeed.
The original exhaust is still fitted, and is in very good condition throughout.

A new set of tyres were fitted in 2016 (10 miles ago).
The only single none original item on the car is a set of -30mm lowering springs as the original owner felt the car sat a little high on the original springs.
