2000 MITSUBISHI EVO VI RS SPRINT

KEY FACTS

  • An excellent example of the Ralliart-tuned limited-edition rally icon, benefitting from a full rebuild and presented with low mileage from new.
  • It is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre inline-four, tuned to produce 330hp, coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential.
  • The odometer displays just 38,537 miles, which is fully supported by the car’s maintenance history.
  • In total, only 12 examples of the lightweight Evo VI RS Sprint were produced, and this example is marked as number one of that extremely limited run.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • This RS Sprint comes finished in Scotia White, with black door handles and wing mirrors.
  • Its inline-four engine has been tuned by Ralliart, now featuring a titanium turbocharger, a modified ECU, ARP Racing conrod bolts, a HKS exhaust system and HKS air filters.
  • Designed with the rally stage in mind, the car also features shorter gear ratios and a a quicker steering rack, while the climate control system, electric windows, electric door mirrors, central locking, rear wiper and fog lamps have been omitted to save weight.
  • This example comes with the optional OZ Racing ‘GSR’ wheels and a twin-plate clutch.
  • The cabin is home to a pair of lightweight Recaro bucket seats, a three-spoke Momo steering wheel and a Ralliart plaque on the lower dashboard, which indicates that this is vehicle number one.
  • An aftermarket Kenwood stereo has been installed.
  • Its original owner’s manuals, spare key and bill of sale will be included, along with correspondence to the original customer, eight MOT certificates and a raft of maintenance invoices.

CONDITION

  • There is no known bodywork damage.
  • The Scotia White paintwork is in excellent condition, with hardly any noticeable marks, and possibly only a few very small stone chips to the front end.
  • Inside, the Recaro seats have just some light signs of use on their bolsters, but there is no substantial wear to the interior trim items.
  • The speedometer has stopped working very recently, but there are no other known electrical or mechanical faults.
  • The car’s last MOT test was conducted on 29 September 2021 at 38,537 miles, resulting in a first-time pass with no warnings or advisories.
  • The underside is described by the seller as “better than factory new”, per the photos and videos below.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • This Evo’s most recent service was carried out in October 2019 at 38,400 miles, when technicians at CPP Motorsport replaced the oils and cambelt, before balancing the shaft belt.
