1998 Mitsubishi Evo 5 RS -- Import -- Finance --warranty SOLD

We are now taking a reservation deposit to secure this Vehicle. Fresh in stock and currently in preparation
The Lancer Evolution V RS was stripped down of all unnecessary equipment aiming for professional teams to convert into a grade A competition car.
The RS gearbox has closer ratios (gears 3, 4 & 5) compared to the GSR gearbox for better acceleration. This limits the top speed of the RS model to around 140mph while the 0-60 time is a fraction faster than that of the GSR.
RS model doesn’t have ABS or Active Yaw Control and the car is generally
between 70kg and 100kg lighter
Although not verified it is believed that no more than 600 Evo V RS were manufactured in 1998 which leaves for consideration how many are actually still in existence.
This vehicle is a fresh Japanese import coming from the inland side of Nagoya which is known for a nice dry climate. As the images detail the undercarriage is as from the factory with no previous welding and is as pristine as you will find one in original untouched condition.

We can Export / Ship to all main Countries hassle free.
