- Reg Date: 2005
This super condition 2005 Evolution IX GT is finished in Amethyst Black. The Recaro Sports Seats are the Black Alcantara type. This very rare example has travelled 55,449 miles from new and its in truly super condition throughout. The Chassis is like that of a brand new car, ideal for the collector and it truly drives like a new car too!
The IX GT model is viewed by many as the Drivers choice, its lighter than the GSR model, ditching the AYC for a conventional rear LSD, the gearbox reverts to the stronger 5 speed unit with RS Ratios but the GSR final drive being retained. A different Turbo is also employed in this model its a 71 Series with Incanol Impeller with Titanium shaft to improve spool up.
This exceptional GT has Japanese service history with a verifying Service Book and last serviced at 56,000 miles. However, to be belt and bracers, its had a comprehensive Inspection and major service carried out by http://www.c1-r.co.uk/ , a company run by former Ralliart UK and WRC technician Chris Timmins. Work Included new Cam and Auxiliary Belts, Replacement Fluids, including Engine, Gearbox and Diff Oil, Brake Fluid, Battery and Antifreeze. Tyres are currently near new Bridgestone Winter Tyres.
The GT is only available in the UK as a Japanese Import, which seems in most cases a very good thing, sadly the vast majority of Evo’s in the UK were never properly rust protected, being JDM models they didn’t receive the factory European Specification paint and rust protection.
This GT was Imported by us this year and has been rust protected, again by using Evo Specialists C1-R, so the chassis looks factory fresh treated with the clear Dynax UC with the heavy duty S50 product used for cavity anti corrosion treatment. (See photographs) It has the cleanest chassis of any pre-owned Evo IX we have seen!
Few would disagree that the final 4g63 Engine Evo IX models will be most one of the most collectable and desirable off the lineage and the MR and GT models topping the list, prices, in line with other low volume specialist performance cars cars, have recently seen increases and I can only see prices going one way long term.
Evo IX models were VIII MR (Mitsubishi Racing) specification plus MIVEC engine camshaft control. Standard Specification Includes: Air Conditioning, Twin Airbags, Alloy Wheels, Electric Front and Rear Windows, Electric Mirrors, Remote Control Central Locking, Super Active Centre Differential (SACD) and a Brembo Braking System with Sports ABS and EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution)
