This super 2007/57 Evolution IX FQ360 By HKS is finished in Metallic Cool Silver. The Recaro Sports Seats are the Black Leather and Alcantara type with the extra cost MR embossed type.
This very rare unmodified MR FQ360 model has travelled just 13,429 miles from new by its one owner, it’s in truly splendid order throughout with an impeccable history!
There were just 57 MR’s registered for road use in 2014 and this is number 82 of the 220 produced by Mitsubishi, some have been shipped overseas, others into collections, and sadly, some written off! Most experts agree that the MR FQ360 is the best all-rounder road going Rally Bred Evo Model.
Few would disagree that the final 4g63 Engine Evo IX model will be most one of the most collectable and desirable off the lineage, prices, in line with other low volume specialist cars, have recently seen price increases and with so few UK MR360’s produced I can only see prices going one way, indeed there must only be a handful of similar examples at best with such low mileage, single ownership and a complete history with the supplying Mitsubishi dealer.
I know a number of serious collectors too who are now adding Evos to their collections, sitting alongside the likes of Ferrari’s and Porsche GT2 and GT3 models! And as a high day/holiday modern classic an Evo is a brilliant driving experience (as well as an investment) and one that will still show a clean pair of heels to many a supercar too on a twisty B road!
This MR has a detailed service history with the supplying Ralliart dealer, PDi Inspection stamp is dated 31.08.2007 followed by no less than 14 stamps in the service book, visiting the same Mitsubishi workshop @15, 1,668, 3,262, 4,551, 5,565, 6,108, 6,970, 7,670, 8,421, 8,820, 9,682, 10,675, 11,279, 12,572 and 13,251 miles. All of the service Invoices in the history file back up the service book stamps, cam belts were changed at 9,682 miles in September 2012.
It’s in all our Interests to ensure such a desirable and collectable model is kept in rust free condition so to help keep it that way a Waxyol anti-corrosion prevention treatment has just been applied to the Chassis too by Evo maintenance experts C1R.
For the uninitiated the Evo IX models were VIII MR (Mitsubishi Racing) specification plus MIVEC engine camshaft control. A rear diffuser was also Introduced for this model. Standard Specification Includes: Climate Control, Twin Airbags, 17″ Speedline Alloy Wheels, Electric Front and Rear Windows, Electric Mirrors, Remote Control Central Locking, Super Active Yaw Control (SAYC), Super Active Centre Differential (SACD) and a Brembo Braking System with Sports ABS and EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution)
The final FQ360 MR model has the HKS tuning parts and Ecu re-map that are employed by Mitsubishi UK to up-rate the UK FQ Evo models. It’s not just the phenomenal 366bhp that Impresses it’s the way its delivered with peek torque of 363ft/Ibs appearing at just 3,200rpm! It’s no wonder that 0-60 comes up in blistering 3.9 seconds and with handling as close to a Group N Rally car you can get what more could you ask for!
Security is taken care of by a Thatcham Cat 1 Immobiliser and Alarm linked to the Central Locking System. ICE is taken care of by a hi-end Pioneer system with DVD player. An i-pod connector has been installed too.
