10k mile 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

This 2005 Mitsubishi Evolution 8 shows just 10,300 miles.  For sale by the original owner, this 13 year old low mileage example has claimed to have never been modified.  The owner also claims that there have been no accidents nor has there been any paintwork.   While the pictures posted by the seller aren’t the best, the Apex Silver paintwork appears to be very clean and the interior condition seems to vouch for the low mileage.  The car is equipped SSL (Sun/Sound/Leather) package which as described included a sunroof, a premium sound system with subwoofer and leather seats.  These final model year Evolution 8 cars benefited from the additional of a larger turbo hotside and the ACD (Active Center Differential) over their 2003 and 2004 counterparts, but did not have MIVEC variable valve timing that the following generation 2006 Evolution 9 received.  As a collector the MR model with it’s six speed transmission and Bilstein dampers would be more desirable, but the five speed transmission in the regular GSR was actually the stronger choice and would be beneficial if car was purchased with the intention of being thoroughly used.  Find it HERE with a starting bid of $28,500 which has not been bid, but considering a 1k mile Evo 9 SOLD for nearly $140k last year, this price might be a bargain for a collector looking for value growth over the coming years.
