FOR SALE: A Special Colour Pack Tommi Makinen Edition, fresh cambelt service, just 31k miles.

Still sporting its factory stripes the Passion Red exterior of this low mileage TME presents to an excellent standard throughout. The paintwork is free from any of the common fading issues, and with barely a stone chip to the front end there are almost no marks to report, although a perfectionist may note a little patina to the original decals.
Even with its “tarmac stage” ride height the TME’s aerodynamic bodykit is without any road rash, and the rear arch seals retain a fresh appearance having been renewed not too long ago. Better still, both the body and underside remain in wonderful rust-free condition. The car was supplied new in Japan and so, having only recently landed in the UK, has spent its life on salt-free roads since new.
The rally-inspired theme continues to the cabin. The supportive Recaro seats are upholstered in distinctive red cloth and black velour, finished with special ‘T. Makinen Edition’ embroidery. The deep bolsters of this example are pleasingly free from any major wear or bobbling to the fabric. The rear seats are also unmarked, and the carpets are protected in the foot-wells by a set of genuine Mitsubishi overmats.
Glancing across the dash you’ll find original details such as the Momo steering wheel, leather gear knob and red-stitched gaiter all still in place. Suitable gauges are installed above the radio ensuring the driver is kept well informed about important temperatures/pressures. The cabin also boasts a dash-mounted boost gauge.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The engine bay of this example retains a clean appearance with no signs of any corrosion, damage or poor repair. There are a handful of performance parts in place, but rest assured that the car still operates smoothly at low speeds before launching into ferocious acceleration at anything above 4,000 rpm. The sensible addition of a turbo timer automatically executes the cool-down period required to prevent premature turbo wear and failure.
With just 31k miles to its name the five-speed manual gearbox feels tight and precise, and the four-wheel-drive system provides enough confidence to power though corners at speed. Despite its high-performance credentials, this Evo VI still drives with typical Japanese-car ease. A full service and timing belt change has recently been carried out at Mitsubishi for the new keeper’s peace of mind. The work was undertaken at Wiltshire & Sons in Farnham.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The Evo VI sits on its original set of 17-inch Enkei wheels in white. All four alloys are in excellent condition presenting with almost no wear to speak of. They are correctly finished with Enkei/Ralliart decals and black Mitsubishi centre caps. All four wheels are wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres. Between the spokes the Brembo calipers look great in red with no signs of any lacquer peel or age-related wear.
The Evo 6.5 was supplied new in Yokohama, Japan, where it was first registered in March 2000. This superb and rare example is complemented by a great maintenance record within the dealer-supplied service booklet. It has recently returned from Mitsubishi in Farnham following a health check, full service and timing belt change for the new keeper’s peace of mind. The original Mitsubishi document holder is also present and correct with handbooks.
