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!

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!
