The first Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition produced for the United States was won in a 10-day long auction in Brooklyn, New York, with a bid of $46,200.
All proceeds will go toward the Pacific South Coast Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. “Through their sponsorship and unprecedented donation we will be able to contribute to MS research that is committed to stopping MS, restoring lost function and ending MS, while we ensure that people affected by multiple sclerosis are surrounded with the resources and support they need to move forward,” said Richard Israel, president of the organization.
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition that was won at the auction was the first of 1,600 that will be produced for the United States market, the final goodbye of a legendary sports sedan with a decade of history behind it.
The Final Edition is doing the Evo justice. Each model will feature a unique numbered plaque, lightweight two-piece Brembo brake rotors, Bilstein shocks, Mitsu’s patented Super All-Wheel Control system, and the regular turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine, tuned up to produce extra horsepower. It’ll be sorely missed at Bell Mitsubishi.
