The First Lancer Evolution Final Edition Just Sold For A Bargain Price

Limited Edition

This Evo will be worth a lot more one day.

The life of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is just about over. The celebratory Final Edition is rolling off the assembly line and onto dealer lots, but before that begins the Japanese automaker decided to raise a bit of money for charity. Only 1,600 Final Editions are being brought to the US, and the first one was auctioned off on eBay to raise money for National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Pacific South Coast Chapter. The winning bid brought in $46,200 and came from Brooklyn Mitsubishi, a dealership.

Wait, a Mitsubishi dealership bought Final Edition 0001? Yup, and while that sounds a bit sinister (flip it for twice the price!) Brooklyn Mitsubishi stated that it wanted to raise money for MS research while getting a badass showroom display piece in the process. Any money raised for charity is good, but we wish the first Final Edition had sold for a bit more. Its MSRP is $37,995 after all! This particular model is a piece of history that also looks incredible. Oh, and it’s likely more than capable of holding its own on the road with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder putting out 303 horsepower to all four wheels with the action controlled by a five-speed manual transmission.

Now that there’s room in the world for a small performance-oriented four-door maybe Dodge will step up to the plate. Random idea, we know, but what if it gave the Dart to Mopar for a true performance tune? The Dart and Lancer are priced around the same, with the base SE model starting at $16,995. Although the Dart is regarded as slow the engine in the top-tier Limited trim kicks out 184 horsepower which is more than the 168 horses by the fastest, non-special edition Lancer. Dodge already has an all-wheel-drive system on the Charger so it’s not like sending power to all four wheels is a mystery to its engineers. We're not saying it will happen, but someone needs to fill the void left by the Evo!
