- 46,030 Miles
- Reg Date: 2005
This super 2005/55 Evolution IX GT finished in Flame red. The Recaro Sports Seats are the Black Alcantara type. This very rare example has travelled 46,030 miles from new and its in truly super condition throughout.
The IX GT model is viewed by many as the Drivers choice, its a bit 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 is retained. A different Turbo is also employed in this model too.
The GT is only available in the UK as a Japanese Import, which seems in most instances, a very good thing indeed, sadly the vast majority of Evo’s in the UK were never properly rust protected, being JDM models, they didn’t receive the Mitsubishi factory European Specification paint and rust protection. This GT was Imported just last year and has been rust protected by 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)
This super GT has a full Japanese service history with verifying Service Book. However, for belt and bracers sake, it had a comprehensive service, new cam belts, brakes, and Sports Exhaust, additional works also include the installation of Tein S Tech Springs, a full 4 wheel chassis alignment, Work Wheels and New UK Bridgestone Tyres, Carbon Vortex Generator and Front Spoiler. A Double-Din Pioneer Head unit was fitted to for ICE.
Few would disagree that the final 4g63 Engine Evo IX models will be most one of the most collectable and desirable off the lineage with 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.
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)
In December 2015 ( since when its done little mileage) it was also treated to a mild re-map to 394bhp with an estimated 0-60 comes in a blistering 3.5 seconds and with handling as close to a Group N Rally car you can get what more could you ask for!
