HJA presents this gorgeous Mitsubishi EVO 8 GSR in striking Palma Red - a scarce find with only 504 units produced in this colour. This low-mileage gem is an ideal collector's choice, boasting a well-documented history with Mitsubishi from its original purchase.
As Mitsubishi halted the production of the iconic Evolution series, enthusiasts and collectors have greatly increased their interest in securing well-maintained, low-mileage versions, driving up demand and prices. These legendary performance vehicles are cherished for their rally heritage and tuning potential, and finding one in original condition has become a challenging quest, intensifying their allure and desirability in the automotive community.
The exterior is in remarkable condition, rated a grade 4.5, indicative of a car that has been meticulously cared for by its owner in Japan without any history of accidents. All metal panels remain original and have been measured with a paint meter. Only the front bumper and side skirts have been repainted due to a few scuffs only.
The interior maintains good condition, exhibiting only slight signs of usage. Beyond a few electronic accessories, the cabin remains unmodified from its original state.
Mechanically, the car is in excellent condition, operating seamlessly from startup to idle without any smoke or misfires. The engine delivers robust power across the rev range, while the transmission shifts smoothly, and the clutch still retains substantial durability. The vehicle has also been recently serviced with high-quality filters and fluids.
As the images below demonstrate, the vehicle's chassis remains in remarkable shape, maintaining its authentic OEM appearance without significant rust problems that often plague these beloved classic models.
Finding such pristine import examples is increasingly challenging, but whether you seek personal enjoyment, wish to enhance a collection, or consider it an investment, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
