This AS NEW CONDITION RS was Imported as a brand new vehicle in to the UK and first registered here on 16th September 1999 on a V plate, with a genuine 11,900 miles dry miles since.

Enkei Wheels and Brembo Brakes were available as option.
This car has never been used competitively, purely summer road miles and last used in 2005. The vehicle is standard other than the option Brembo calipers and 17″ OZ Racing alloy wheels. A Stainless Steel Exhaust system is currently fitted to allow the car to be started routinely.
A previous EVO Expert owner spent 18 months searching for a RS in exceptional condition with a view to enhancing the car with a comprehensive concours preparation. This Evo VI RS has never been accident damaged. All the panels are the original factory paintwork.
Concours preperation to the chassis components commenced early 2006 to the standard you can see in the photos. The car has been SORN registered since April 2006.
Moorland Classic Cars assisted with the Chassis enhancement work along with Glyn O’Donnell Carnoisseur Auto Detail for the Swissvax paintwork detailing work. The standard of finish is truly breathtaking, this is the best example of any Evo we have seen in the UK, probably the best in the World, you could not find a better one!
