Mitsubishi GSR/EVO I-X/RVR

Without the after-market import industry, Australia would have missed out on some of the best Mitsubishis ever made.

Not until 2005 when the local company started selling EVO IXs did we start getting a reliable stream of these quasi-rally rockets.

The all-wheel drive turbo Lancer lineage began with the fairly meek GSR and precious few of those survive. Then came the EVOs – a lot of early ones acquired for conversion to competition cars – then came the EVO VIs which served to satisfy demand for road-going performance cars.

The pick of these are ‘6.5’ Timo Makinen commemorative models that can exceed $40,000. If you have half that money though, EVO VIIs and VIIIs are still affordable.

GSR $8065 [3] 

EVO I-V $25,900 [4] 

EVO VI $25,425 [18]

EVO 6.5 Makinen $33,260 [5] 

EVO VII-VIII $20,890 [25]

EVO IX-X $31,300 [33] 

RVR Hypergear $6985 [3]
