10K-Mile Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX MR Should Be On Your Bucket List

A silver Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR is looking for a new home in Colorado with a mere 9800 miles (15,771 km) on the clock, and is up for sale at Bring A Trailer.

The Evo IX, the final iteration adored by enthusiasts before the lackluster X came along, is one of the more desirable Evo models, particularly in MR spec like this one. Taking into account the low mileage, it is little wonder why, at the time of writing, the car had already attracted a bid of $35,000 with two days left in the auction.

Driving all four wheels is Mitsubishi’s famed 4G63 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder delivering 286 HP and 289 lb-ft (391 Nm) of torque, which make the car still feel very brisk even by today’s standards.

Very few modifications have been made to the car, which is something rare for an Evo. Indeed, the only changes mentioned by the seller are AMS stainless steel brake lines, Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec tires and an air-dam extension. We have a suspicion that the Apex Silver Metallic paintwork will make the car all the more appealing to those in the market for an Evo.

After recently spending some time with an Evo VIII MR, we can confirm that the long-standing hype surrounding the VIII and IX iterations of Mitsubishi’s WRC homologation special is absolutely warranted. It used to be one of the finest performance cars of its day and, to this day, remains extraordinarily good fun to drive. Finding one with so few modifications and miles is rare, and with prices rising, this could be one of the last opportunities enthusiasts have of buying an Evo before prices skyrocket.
