This super 2007/57 Evolution IX MR FQ360 By HKS is finished in Metallic Gunmetal Grey. The Recaro Sports Seats are the Black Leather and Alcantara type with the Red stitching. Most experts agree that the MR FQ360 is the best all-rounder road going Rally Bred Evo Model.
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.
This very rare unmodified MR FQ360 model has travelled just 36,901 miles from new, it’s in truly excellent condition throughout with a great history. First owner, for the majority of its life, acquiring the car on the 01/09/2007 the second keeper owning this MR HKS from just the 01/11/14. The third owner a regular customer of ours purchased this car (his 4th Evo) in August with the Intention of keeping it as a collectors example, with just occasional use, however he’s also had an Itch to scratch for some time in the form of a R35 GTR and couldn’t resist when an immaculate low mileage example came into our stock! Indeed most of the 1,100 miles he covered in the Evo was travelling to and from us on 4 occasions!
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 MR 360’s produced I can only see prices going one way, indeed there must only be a handful of similar examples at best in such good condition and with a documented history.
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 14 stamps in the service book, visiting the workshop @ 4,545, 7,467, 9,727, 13,851, 16,069, 19,679, 21,517, 23,938, 25,328 , 27,457, 27,951, 30,757, 33,410 (all fluid’s changed, Engine, AYC, Rear Diff, Transfer box, Gearbox) and 35,542 miles on 06/06/2015.

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 0-62 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!
