Mitsubishi GSR/EVO I-IX/RVR market review from our 2020 Japanese Classic & Performance Car Guide

It took Mitsubishi Australia way too long to understand that Australians really did want to own rally-spec EVOs and by the time a local version of the EVO IX was offered the end was imminent. Most cars available in the current market will be relatively recent imports and generally in decent order.

| Buyers' Guide: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

Some came here with the intended purpose of rally car conversion and may not have full ADR compliance. Very early EVO I-Vs are scarce and, for no logical reason, cheap as well. So are VII and VIII versions of which there is an oversupply, however the ‘Makinen’ 6.5 will cost 30 percent more than a basic car.

| Buyers' Guide: Mitsubishi Lancer GSR (1992-96)

For people who want to own an EVO without the stresses of changing gears the VIII version was available as an automatic. The cute Hypergear mini-SUV built with EVO-spec engines is cheap but few survive and that’s a shame.

EVO I-V $12,625 [4] 

EVO VI $33,360 [14]

EVO 6.5 Makinnen $44,325 [13]

EVO VII-VIII $23,240 [39] 

EVO IX $41,320 [9] 

RVR Hypergear $8990 [1]
