The EVOLUTION is arguably the best rally car ever produced, known for its driving dynamics, aftermarket support, and racing heritage. This 1995 EVO III received plenty of upgrades over its predecessor in the form of better aero and more horsepower, and you can feel a difference from behind the wheel. Finished in Scotia White (W83), this lightly modified, all-wheel-drive sedan is offered with only 100K unverified miles on the chassis. The body itself is in good shape other than some minor dings, scuffs, and chips associated with normal use. Legally imported, and brought up to date on its maintenance requirements, this fantastic driving rally rocket could be yours today!
The cockpit of this EVO is thoughtfully laid out and has some surprising power options and a few upgrades. Red Recaro SRD buckets set off the interior and offer a sharp crimson contrast against the grey and black interior accents. The driver's side bolster does have some loose-fitting fabric, but other than that, they are devoid of other major imperfections such as rips, holes, and tears. Aggressively bolstered, they prevent the front occupants from sloshing around in the corners too much. The backbench is in fine shape and doesn't have any major imperfections as well. The dash is in good shape other than some exposed screws that remain from a nav unit that is no longer installed. Its neither discolored or cracked, and sits low in the cockpit to promote good visibility. The digital climate works as it should, and the A/C can relive some of this upcoming summer heat we will see shortly. The LED screen isn't very bright at this point, but it does function as it should otherwise. A bubble shift knob and Apexi boost gauge suite are the only other interior upgrades and add a bit of sportiness to the spartan interior. The door cards and headliners are good, although some of the interior plastics such as the center console and interior door handles have faded a touch. The center console lid, dash vent control, and head unit are missing, but are certainly not imperative and have been taken into effect when pricing the vehicle.
The engine and driveline utilized in the EVO are legendary. The fact that Mitsubishi used this 4G63 in every EVO up to the IX is a testament to how well this unit was designed. Turn the key and the four-cylinder jolts to life. Benefitting from a semi-synthetic oil and filter service, no scheduled service is needed for another five-thousand kilometer. It sounds throatier than stock as a Fujitsubo catback has been installed at some point in Japan, and a short ram intake makes some neat sounds out front. Acceleration occurs quickly and getting to and above interstate speeds in easy in an EVO. The five-speed, close-ratio gearbox works as it should and is devoid of any grinding or clunking. The steering is direct and communicative which is important as the Tein dampers allow for much higher cornering speeds than stock. Although firmer than the OEM dampers, the offer adjustability for height and damping. The drop brings more attention to the Advan Model7 alloy wheels, which are wrapped in new all-season rubber all around. The brakes are decent and quickly stop this lightweight rally terror if you require an immediate reduction in speed.
This rally superhero can finally be yours, and it won't disappoint. The fun tossable nature of the early EVOs, paired with an impressive engine and unique boy-racer styling is a combo you just can't beat!
