Well, folks, the final Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, one of the most loved compact cars is officially off the market. The Japanese automaker brought the legendary model’s legacy to a close via an eBay auction on September 15th. All proceeds from the auction benefited Feeding America Riverside and Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.
The final Mitsubishi Evo came in the form of the Lancer Evo X Final Edition. Only 1,600 units left the production line with the final model heading to eBay. It eventually sold for a whopping $76,400, an amount that will surely help those in need.
The Final Edition Evo was the best form of the compact car. It boasted 12 hp over the standard model as well as a five-speed manual transmission. Other standard features included Bilstein shocks, Brembo brakes, and Eibach springs.
The Final Edition model is largely considered a collectible due to the limited production run and upgraded performance features. The car itself boasts a sleek sporty design that makes this model one to remember.
As the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo drives off into the sunset, it’s good to know that the final model will help feed those in need.
We here at Coronet Mitsubishi are sad to see such an amazing car leave the production line for good.
