The last Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition ever to be produced has gone under the hammer in the US at a price of US$76,400.
Chassis number 1600 of the Mitsubishi X Final Edition, the last to be produced, ended up landing just shy of the $80k mark, but still commanded a $38,490 premium over the X Final Edition’s $37,995 retail price.
In an auction late last year the very first US-spec Final Edition Evo X went up for auction and was sold for $46,200. Don Swearingen, Mitsubishi Motors North America’s executive VP and COO, said:
“We’re thrilled to see the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition US1600 car generate so much interest and command a top price. It’s a fitting and deserving finality to the Evolution nameplate to go out with so much excitement and make an impact that is sure to last a very long time to drive out hunger.”
The Evo 10 Final Edition uses a slightly tuned version of Mitsubishi’s potent 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder (226kW in Australia), complete with suspension tweaks, namely Bilstein shocks and Eibach dampers, as well as updated Brembo brakes, and a black roof.
All proceeds of the auction were donated to the Feeding America Riverside charitable-program, and not a private owner.
As far as we know there is no new Lancer Evolution planned for the future. The future of the regular Lancer also looks bleak with the company yet to confirm if it will replace it.
