This one-owner 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 6.5 Tommi Mäkinen Edition in white with just 56,865 km was inspected at auction on 15 February 2018.
Auction grade 4 B, report noted:
Seat and steering wheel worn
Alloy wheels scratched
Underneath rust, has been painted
Small marks around the car
On inspection we found the vehicle to be clean and original overall, other than the rust shown in the pictures – engine bay, underbody, boot.
It sold for 2.51 million Yen FOB, which at the time would have been approx. $38,300 complied in Australia (calculated at 84.2 Yen to the dollar). Which goes to show how much collectors are willing to pay for low km and original vehicles even when they are rusty.
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 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 6.5 Tommi Mäkinen Edition like this, or another year, make or model, we can find it for you in nice condition.
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.
