This 1998 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 5 GSR with 82,291 km was inspected for a client in August 2020.
Auction grade 3.5 C. We found the condition to be quite good for age. Most notably the body had virtually no rust and was about as good as you might see for an EVO 5 in Japan. Very difficult to find in this condition.
Oil and radiator coolant leaks required repair. Some scratches and dents to the body but nothing major. Overall paintwork was in good condition with no obvious fading.
Good interior other than general wear and tear. Steering wheel was worn. Driver’s door material had come away a little.

Prices are constantly changing as vehicles age and new models are released – classic cars like this one increase in value over time and near new cars typically depreciate in Japan at a rate of 10 to 15% per year for the first few years.
So for the most up to date pricing please get in touch with us for a current market price on the specification you want.
We only source the best vehicles with clean and tidy interiors, and only vehicles we would be pleased to own ourselves. This is why we are constantly told by clients that the vehicles we source are well above the condition of most others on the local market.
The pictures are typical of the information we provide prior to auction for each vehicle of interest, with any faults shown so you can clearly see the condition before we discuss whether to bid, and your budget.
Whether you’re looking for a 1998 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 5 GSR like this, or another year, make or model, we can find it for you in nice condition and at the best possible price.
It is vital when sourcing your vehicle to use an agent that takes the time to physically check each vehicle and looks beyond the auction pictures and report to confirm condition. Some vehicles may have an unpleasant smoke or other odour, rust underneath, or other faults which are impossible to know without inspection.
