Full walkaround video here – FQ360MR HKS Walkaround Video
Without doubt a modern classic which ticks every box.
This was the last Evo model to use the 4G63 engine, and Mitsubishi wanted to make sure they gave it a perfect send off.
0-60mph in 3.9 seconds
So this car is the end of an era, it has fantastic performance, it also has rarity as Mitsubishi only produced 200 examples!
With the production of the Mitsubishi Evolution now stopped, Evolution’s have seen a steady increase in value, particularly the limited edition / low volume models.

Body & Paintwork
We use paint depth measuring devices to be 100% sure of paintwork originality, and we can confirm that the paintwork on this example is totally original.
The car has no dents, or car parking marks, and all badges are original.
All glass is original, and all carbon fibre trims are in excellent condition.
Lights look stunning all round, with no damage at all.
The paintwork gives a great shine having recently been detailed, none of the usual ‘cleaning marks/swirls’.
This is a fantastic example throughout.
Interior & Trim
The interior of this example demonstrates very low mileage, along with great care.
No marks at all, anywhere!
The optional upgrade MR seats looks superb, with no signs of wear (might i add they are extremely comfortable).
Piano black dash inserts are again, unmarked, and without the typical cleaning marks/scratches.
Everything works just as it should do, Ralliart floor mats are still fitted, along with the optional stereo fitted.
Rear seats look like they have never been used, and the back of the front seats are as new with no scratches or foot markings.
A superb place to be!
What an engine!
The Evo IX MR FQ360 was the last of the 4G63 engine, and Mitsubishi wanted to make an impact.
With titanium turbo impeller, MIVEC, HKS hardpipe’s, high flow fuel pump, HKS exhaust, HKS ECU and more, they certainly made an impact!
With 366bhp & 363lb ft these cars are extremely capable, and fast even by today’s standards.
0-60mph in 3.9 seconds with a manual gearbox and no launch control!
Having ran the 4G63 engine through the Evolution range, from the Evolution I to this, the Evolution IX MR FQ360 HKS, this limited edition end of the run model is quickly becoming very sought after.
The engine bay itself presents very nicely indeed, being without modifications.
This particular example is nice and quiet, both when cold and warm.
No smoking at all, either on start up, idle, boost or overrun.
The car performs perfectly through the rev range, with no hesitations, and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
As per the rest of the car, the running gear is simply spot on.
The original Bilstein suspension is in very good order, still nice bright yellow legs.
The original rear Brembo calipers are showing no signs of lacquer peel or ‘pinking’ (very common failure) and the front Alcon brakes are brand new.
Likewise the Speedline alloy wheels are brand new, so are of course without any marks or damage – the ‘Speedline’ print on the rims is perfect, along with perfect centre caps.
The underside of the car itself is very good, with no damage and no corrosion.
The original HKS exhaust system is also is perfect condition.
All tyres are brand new Bridgestone as well.
