Lot 131 - 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI 'Tommi Makinen Edition'
|£26,000 - £32,000
The 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI Tommi Makinen Edition pays homage to the legendary rally driver's four consecutive World Rally Championship titles with Mitsubishi. Named after Tommi Makinen, this limited-edition vehicle embodies rally heritage and performance. Featuring a turbocharged 2.0-litre inline-four engine, all-wheel drive, and enhanced suspension, it delivers exhilarating driving dynamics on both road and rally stages. Sporting distinctive decals, Recaro seats, and unique trim elements, the Tommi Makinen Edition stands out aesthetically. With its rally-inspired pedigree and precision engineering, the 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI Tommi Makinen Edition remains a sought-after gem among enthusiasts and collectors alike.
This striking looking Evo 6 Tommi Makinen edition was imported from Japan in 2014 and is one of the best-looking examples we have seen. It presents wonderfully in Scotia White with a contrasting two tone interior and Revolution Millenium wheels in white. This well looked after example has covered less than 4,000 miles in the 10 years it has spent in the U.K. During that time, it has been dry stored and well cared for. It has been in the current owner’s tenure since March 2021 and during his ownership, the works undertaken have included fitting a Kakimoto exhaust, an Exedy twin plate clutch coilovers and mapping the engine to 357 bhp. The car was taken to Autotorque in 2021 for a full service which included changing the cambelt and spark plugs. The rear subframe and fuel tank were removed, rust treated and then protected in white. Refurbished Brembo calipers were fitted all round with braided lines added and brand-new grooved discs and pads. The total expenditure detailed in the history file shows over £8,000 having been spent. Offered to auction with a V5c registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 20th June 2024 this Mitsubishi needs a new driver. Consignor, Dominic Lake.
