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 6,937 miles from new by its one owner, it’s in truly excellent original condition throughout with a Superguard Paint Protection from new. Most experts agree that the MR FQ360 is the best all-rounder road going Rally Bred Evo Model.
This MR has been in storage much of its life, Its been serviced by Mitsubishi Rallart dealers with a major re-commissioning service and Cam Belts earlier this year. Its also just had a comple check over by Evo Experts C1-R ( Former Ralliart UK and WRC Technician Chris Timmins ) and the underseal re-freshed with Waxoyl and the lastest Dynax S50 Cavity anti corrosion treatment. It sits on its original tyres, all over 4mm but age cracking on all four of the factory fit Yokohamas. Sales price includes for replacements or an adjustment in price if the car is just going into a collection.
Contrary to previous Information supplied by Mitsubishi UK we believe that there were only ever 100 Evo IX MR models Imported into the uk after reading the original shipping manifest just last week! This makes the Evolution IX FQ360 By HKS model even rarer than we thought, It also explains why DVLA information only shows a maximum of 79 road registered in the UK and just 61 licenced in the last quarter of 2015. The DVLA records have always mystified me but now we have copies of the shipping papers they explain a lot, additionally looking at the registered numbers of the standard Evo IX FQ360 its our guess that the Mitsubishi supplied 220 figure came from the combined number of standard and MR FQ360 models produced.
Shipping documentation details The following Evo IX MR FQ360 models shipped to the UK. A39 Grey 55 Units, A31 Silver 25 Units, P23 Red 15 Units, W13 White 5 Units.
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!

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.
