For just $19,300, you could own this rally legend.
To the untrained eye, this may look like nothing more than a mid-90s economy sedan with an oversized aftermarket spoiler. But for those of us who know better, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo is a thoroughbred rally car through and through. Just a limited number of examples of the Evo II RS were built for civilian use between July of 1994, and January of 1995 – and this one is up for sale.
With a respectable $19,300 price tag, and just 46,502 miles (75,000 kilometers) on the odometer, one lucky owner will be able to drive away with this rally legend. In fact, it would be just the second person to do so in the car’s 22-year history – pending they're able to front the shipping costs from Hong Kong.
First introduced in 1993, the Evo II was only slightly modified over the outgoing Evo I. Tweaks to the wheelbase, handling, and bodywork accented the more powerful 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder engine and reduced curb weight. When in RS trim, the engine would produce a hefty 252 horsepower (188 kilowatts), all that power funneling through a manual gearbox to an advanced all-wheel-drive system.
This particular example is completely stock. Straight from the factory. Original steelies, black plastic mirrors and doors handles, and a cloth interior keep things driver-focused. The seller also notes that it's "one of the best condition Lancer Evo 2[s] we've ever seen," and comes with a full service history to go along with it.
While most would probably suggest it for use in a privateer rally team, we say leave it as be and it would make for the ultimate sleeper. Steelies and all.
