KEY FACTS

  • A striking example of the highly desirable rally-bred performance car, boasting a raft of modifications and presented in smart overall condition.
  • Under the bonnet is the car’s original ‘4G63’ 2.0-litre turbocharged inline-four, which has been tuned to produced 197kw and drives all four wheels via a five-speed manual transmission.
  • In total, only 2,500 Tommi Makinen Edition cars were produced, while 1,194 were finished in Scotia White.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • As well as its Scotia White paintwork, this example features a two-tone black and red interior, and retains its correct Tommi Makinen-branded Recaro sports seats.
  • Standard equipment includes climate control, power steering and power mirrors.
  • A later-model Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution ECU has been installed, which enables greater control of engine calibration.
  • As a result, the vehicle has been dyno-tuned to produced 197kW at all four wheels.
  • Other improvements include an aftermarket high-flow ceramic coated exhaust manifold, a Custom Exhaust Specialist three-inch ceramic coated turbo outlet and a Blitz three-inch exhaust system with new catalytic converter.
  • A high-quality PWR radiator and PWR power steering cooler have been combined with a Kigly HLA and a Racefab larger capacity oil pan to help improve reliability.

  • Furthermore, aftermarket canards have been fitted to the front bumper.
  • Inside, an aftermarket stereo and Pioneer speakers have been installed, as well as Greddy boost gauge and a DEFI ZD performance display.
  • The vehicle will be supplied with a partial service history and a number of its original parts, including the standard airbox, exhaust manifold with homologation-spec secondary air system, oil sump and radiator and suspension.

CONDITION

  • The Scotia White paintwork is believed to be largely original, with the front guards, bonnet and bumper having been repainted due to a minor low-speed incident.
