One More Day to Bid on the Last Mitsubishi Lancer EVO Final Edition
[Update] The last Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition sold for $76,400.
Seems Mitsubishi and eBay decided to team up this year when it came to auctioning off the very last Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution…ever! What was once an iconic, legendary, and formidable four-door sport car is drawing to a final close.
For National Hunger Feeding Month, Mitsubishi is auctioning the last 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition and giving all of the proceeds to Feeding America and Second Harvest Food Bank. The auction price has already exceeded $60k and there’s still one day left to bid on it. You can’t put a price on ending hunger.
In case you don’t know about the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, here’s a look back at the Lancer Evo and all of its features that drove sports car enthusiasts wild for years.
Engine and Mechanics
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter MIVEC DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder. “MIVEC” stands for Mitsubishi’s personal VVT or “Variable Valve Timing” process, a system designed to optimize vehicle performance and fuel economy. Furthermore, with a DOHC “Double Overhead Camshaft”, it outperforms other cars made with a SOHC. This impressive engine generates 303-horsepower and pushes out 305 lb-ft of torque. Paired to a five-speed manual transmission, the Lancer Evo has a fuel economy of 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.
Known as some of the best names in the business, Bilstein and Brembo were integrated into the Evo just in time. Bilstein shock absorbers and Eibach springs make up the suspension of the vehicle for just the right handling. Brembo brakes with 2-piece front rotors help the Lancer Evo to stop-on-a-dime.
Because this is the Lancer Evo Final Edition model, it has a “Final Edition Badge.” The paint job on the model being auctioned is new diamond white pearl and several sections are all-black: black painted aluminum roof, gloss black center bumper, dark chrome painted Enkei alloy wheels, and a dark chrome front grille. The car’s exterior is completed with auto on/off bi-xenon High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights with leveling control.
The Lancer Evo has an excellent interior as well. The seats are all sport seats with red stitch accents; the stitching can also be found on the steering wheel, shift knob, console lid, floormats, and emergency brake handle. The console box is colored in gloss black and features the production serial number “US1600.” To top it off, the meter display features a “Final Edition” animation.
The eBay auction for the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition ends tomorrow (Sept. 15, 2016) at 12pm EST.
