1995 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution II RS Up for Grabs

Mitsubishi Logo

 

The last Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition has finally been sold, which means the legendary sports car is no longer on the market. Fortunately, if you didn’t have the chance to grab one while they were still available, you might be able to get an older model instead. A 1995 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution II RS is currently on the market.

 

The classic 1995 sports car boasts just 46,600 miles on the odometer and has one owner in its 21-year-long history. The owner kept track of the car’s service history in a log book, along with the mileage.

 

The Lancer Evo II RS, a modified version of the standard Evo II, brings a performance-driven engine tuned to pump out 256 hp, wider tires, 16-inch rims, an aerodynamic design, and 30% stiffer chassis, among other changes.

 

The seller, a dealership in Hong Kong, is asking for approximately $19,000 for the classic car. Don’t fret about the location though. The 1995 Lancer Evo II RS comes with an export certificate as well.

If you’ve ever wanted to own a classic car and have a fair amount of money lying around, this is your chance!

 

We here at Randall Mitsubishi wish we could our behind the wheel of this classic sports car!

Mitsubishi Lancer Evo Final Edition Debuts

Lancer Evo Final Edition

Mitsubishi is coming out with its final edition of the Lancer Evo, only a limited amount will be produced in the US!

It’s been a long race for the iconic Lancer Evo, but now it’s coming to an end. Mitsubishi Motors is taking orders in the Japanese market for the Lancer Evo Final Edition as of Friday, April 9th. The Final Edition, obviously from the name, is the last special edition of the turbocharged, all-wheel-drive sedan before production stops altogether.

Ten generations have come and gone. Mitsubishi revealed a 480 hp powerhouse at the Tokyo Auto Salon earlier this year but, unfortunately, the Final Edition isn’t it and it looks as though a Lancer Evo with that power will forever remain a concept.

Different from your everyday Lancer Evolution, the Final Edition will feature a black chrome grille, glossy black trim on the lower front bumper, and air vent bezels. “Final Edition” will also be mounted on the trunk lid. Inside, a metal plaque will be engraved with the vehicle’s serial number.

Under the hood, the Final Edition carries the usual 2-liter turbocharged four cylinder capable of 291 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. Different from the usual model is an upgrade to sodium-filled exhaust valves for better performance at high engine speeds.

Only 1,000 of the Final Edition models will make it to roadways in Japan. The United States will see an exclusive Final Edition in summer 2016. Stop by Randall Mitsubishi to learn more about the new model!

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Final Concept on its Way to Tokyo Auto Salon

Lancer Evolution X Final Concept

While we are sad that Mitsubishi is walking away from the Evo X, we’re glad they’re making a Lancer Evolution X Final Concept.

Mitsubishi has officially announced that the Tokyo Auto Salon later this month will house the premiere of the last model of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Final Concept, a limited edition send-off model, which will have a mostly black exterior.

This model will be the last Evo X ever produced, and as such, there will only be a limited number of units available for purchase. These cars are sure to be a hot commodity on the collectors’ market as commemorative vehicles to the Evo X legacy.

The Final Concept vehicle will come standard with a five-speed manual though there will be a six-speed twin-clutch option. Additionally, the Final Concept model will have a 2.0-liter engine with a turbocharger, as well as new intake and exhaust systems.

These cars are likely to sell fast once they hit the market, which likely will not happen until much later this year. Until then, come visit us at Randall Mitsubishi to check out the Mitsubishi models we have in store.

Mitsubishi Announces Final Edition Evo X to Arrive in June

Final Edition Evo X announced

The Lancer Evolution is officially ending but there will be a final edition Evo X!

Don Swearingen, an executive vice president at Mitsubishi Motors North America, recently took part in an online question and answer session on Jalopnik. While the topics of the Q&A ranged from the status of the company’s fleet vehicles to the Delica being moved to the US, the most important bit of information gleaned from the session involved the future of the Lancer Evolution—or the lack of one.

Final Edition Evo X in the Works

Swearingen took the opportunity to finally confirm that the Evo series is no longer continuing, stating, “There are currently no plans for an Evo XI.” This doesn’t mean that the final edition Evo X isn’t going to be just as exciting as its predecessors, though. It is set to feature a GSR five-speed, boasting more ponies under the hood; a better tuned suspension; and other changes that are sure to help the Evo go out with a bang.

Only 2,000 final edition Evo X models will be available, so make sure you get them while you can. Until then, stop in to Randall Mitsubishi today and see what else our brand has to offer!
