Framedphotograph of Tommi Mkinen signing the bonnetThe Evolution series was first launched in Japan in 1992 with the Lancer GSR Evolution. Built to allow Mitsubishi to compete in the World Rally Championship, the first Evo pioneered the formula that all subsequent cars would follow - a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine, big spoilers and lightweight interior. The Evo II and III were launched respectively in 1993 and 1995, with the Evolution IV in 1996. The first of the more modern Mitsubishi Carisma based models was the Lancer Evo V, which made its world debut at the Tokyo Show in October 1997.None of these models was ever officially imported to the UK, and it was only during the late nineties when the British public started to appreciate Japanese sports cars likethe Subaru Impreza and Nissan Skyline that demand for Lancer Evo models in the UK really took off. An outlet of Ralliart, Mitsubishi's rally preparation arm, sold the Evo VI from early 1998, but it wasn't until May 1999 that Mitsubishi officially launched the car in the UK coinciding with the development of Ralliart UK, a new company offering closer ties with the UK importer.Between early 1998 and May 1999, a number of 'standard' GSR models, and lightweight RS and RS II models were sold from the Dudley dealership but when Ralliart UK was formed, the range was rationalised. The RS II received a number of slight changes and became the RSX, produced in a limited batch of 30 cars with aluminium front wings and bonnet, no ABS or AYC, and were 110kg lighter than other Evo VImodels. It'san astonishingly effective B-road tool, capable of holding huge speed mid-cornerand nothing will stay with a well-driven RSXin these conditions and trying to keep upin a Porsche or Ferrari would be a touch optimistic.Of the 30 RalliartRSX cars produced for the UK, 10 were in Silver and 20 in White. Built in 1999 and first registered here on02/06/2000, this right-hand-driveEvo VI RSX is one of the White ones. Our caring vendor has owned the car for 16 years andhasused it sparingly in that time, covering only 3,200 miles during that period. The car's total mileage from new is 31,847 and this is supported by no less than 13 MOT Certificates.Prior to our vendor's purchase on 5/01/2004, a previous owner had carried out a number of modifications and upgrades. These were carried out by Ralliart and Power Engineering and include;Quick shift gear change, rare Compomotive MO6 classic-style alloys, special oil (Millers) renewed in diffs, gearbox, engine,Carbon rear spoiler fitted (theoriginal is available to be collected by buyer),Eibach suspension, HKS stainless exhaust system, strut brace, ARPengine bolts, turbo-timer fitted to protect turbo(titanium turbo), HKS digital boost gauge, Tracker and 2 immobilisers fitted, Helix Ceramic Clutch and Ralli Art livery decals fitted.During our vendor's ownership,he has fitteda Ross Sport cambelt & tensioners kit (in Nov 2017 less than 650 miles since), and theoil and filters have been changed yearlyusing Miller Oils, a fresh MOT was issued on 17th October 2020with No Advisories.
