This car has an infamous history as it was part of a seizure of 56 cars made by the DEA and US Marshals departments in the US city of Tulsa last year. The story made the headlines and I bought it directly from the DEA. The story is detailed here:
- details above
The car was shipped over in the middle of last year. It was in great condition and only needed some minor work (details listed) including a trip to marque specialists Autotorque. They are the top EVO specialists in the UK and were impressed with the car overall. The car was originally a JDM vehicle. The car was given a full inspection and all issues addressed. The car was also remarked upon because it doesn't suffer the usual rust problems that these cars experience. It has no underseal on it and it has all of the original markings from the factory(any inspection is welcome).
I went through and refurbished the Enkei wheels and had brand new Potenza's fitted which are as close to OEM you can get and very expensive, I also had the Brembo brakes completely refurbished with new decals, replaced the non standard gear shifter with an original TME one. The body work was then professional corrected and all paint chips repaired. The car's previous owner had kept the car in original tune but I did remove all aftermarket turbo dials because I wanted it completely standard. It also had a new battery.
Due to the seizure the car doesn't have any of the maintenance records other than what I have spent on it but the US Marshals did confirm the mileage is correct and I have all of the correspondence include US Marshals bill of sale to back this up.
The car is incredibly fast and is amazing to drive. These cars are appreciating fast, its in show condition but I'm not in a rush to sell, it is one of the most famous Evo's outside of the rally cars themselves. I have the full rally decal kit with the "Tommi" name across the bonnet (there were 2) which will be supplied with the car, Bonhams MPH suggested putting it on would up the value a couple of thousand pounds however the colour is so good that I decided not to. There were only 400 of the cars made in this colour which is absolutely amazing making it rarer than the more common red.
I'm a reliable and honest seller with close to 400 positive feedback comments. Please no P/ X suggestions unless its part cash/ something interesting like a C4S, and I'm looking for around £10k in cash.
