Here we have a much sought after Mitsubishi Evolution IX FQ360 By HKS (All Wheel Drive) finished in the most popular Metallic Gunmetal Grey with the desirable extra cost IX MR Embroidered Recaro Sports Bucket Seats finished in Black Leather and Alcantara, contrasting Red Stitching. First Registered 24th September 2007 (57 Registration) this fabulous example has travelled just 16,700 miles from new, it’s in truly exceptional condition throughout with a great history, you just couldn’t find a better one!
Previously owned by myself, I do not know of a better condition UK IX MR FQ360 model, I know the complete history of this car, the majority of miles were covered by the first mature owner (2007-2014 and around 14,000 miles), it was a purely dry use car only, I remember him telling me it had never been out in the rain, at night, wipers had not been used, back seats had never been used etc. I took it with a pinch of salt, then when I saw the car I was blown away and had to have it.
Since then it has only been sold by or through us, to enthusiasts and collectors. Covering minimal mileage, it has remained dry use only and kept dry stored, having personally owned 12+ IX MR’s and our company heritage being Ralliart UK/Xtreme, we have seen around 80-100 of the apparent 225 produced. Although we know there are around 5 examples with lower mileage, we are confident in saying this is the best condition Factory UK IX MR FQ360. It has had no restoration work, it is a genuine, extremely clean Factory example.
There were just 43 MR’s (out of 225 allegedly produced) registered for road use in 2018 making this a very limited edition Mitsubishi Evo, some have been shipped overseas, others into collections, and sadly, some written off! Most experts agree that the MR FQ360 is the best all-rounder road going Rally Bred Evo Model.
Few would disagree that the final 4g63 Engine Evo IX model will be most one of the most collectable and desirable off the lineage, prices, in line with other low volume specialist cars, have seen drastic price increases in recent years and with so few UK MR360’s produced I can only see prices going one way. We know a number of serious collectors too who have added limited Evo’s to their collections, sitting alongside the likes of Ferrari’s and Porsche GT2 and GT3 models! and as a high day/holiday modern classic an Evo is a brilliant driving experience (as well as an investment) and one that will still show a clean pair of heels to many a supercar too on a twisty B road!
For the uninitiated the Evo IX models were VIII MR (Mitsubishi Racing) specification plus MIVEC engine camshaft control. Front Bumper Face-lift and a rear diffuser, The final FQ360 MR model has the HKS tuning parts and Ecu re-map that are employed by Mitsubishi UK to up-rate the UK FQ Evo models. It’s not just the phenomenal 366bhp, 363ft/Ibs appearing at just 3,200rpm! It’s no wonder that 0-60 comes up in blistering 3.9 seconds (there are still not many hot hatches that can do that produced now) and with handling as close to a Group N Rally car you can get what more could you ask for! Very few cars hold the raw driver feel of an Evo.
