Its massive motorsport-spec front bumper now housed a wider mouth, with revised spot-lamps and offset number plate. Regular Evo side-skirts remained, but a new twin-blade rear wing was used to meet WRC regulations. Meanwhile, the GSR interior included black Recaro seats, climate control and blue gauges. By 1999/2000, such was the UK-demand for more potent incarnations, a series of ultra-hot, ultra-rare Evos were made available, including several Ralliart-built UK cars like the 320bhp RS Sprint, 340bhp Extreme, RSX (RS spec plus some GSR trim) and 380bhp RS450. The car presented here is a 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI RS Sprint, being #001 of just 12 examples produced (a plaque on the lower dashboard denotes this), being fully (officially) fettled by Ralliart UK. As a Ralliart-tuned, limited edition rally icon (in appropriate Scotia White paintwork) it is hugely sought after; powered by a turbocharged 2-litre inline-four, tweaked to produce 330bhp (tuned by Ralliart, now featuring a titanium turbocharger, a modified ECU, ARP Racing conrod bolts, a HKS exhaust system, and a HKS air filter) coupled to a 5-speed gearbox and a limited-slip differential. It also features shorter gear ratios and a quicker steering rack, while the A/C, electric windows, electric door mirrors, central locking, and rear wiper have been omitted to save weight; it is fitted with the optional OZ Racing ‘GSR’ wheels and a twin-plate clutch. The car is accompanied by a comprehensive maintenance history, including a full service and underside restoration in 2021, and a major timing belt service with CPP Motorsport in October 2019, its original Owner’s Manuals, spare key and Bill of Sale, along with correspondence to the original customer, and eight x MOT Certificates. The car underwent a full service and underside restoration in 2021; prior to this, in October 2019 at 38,400 miles, CPP Motorsport replaced the oils and cambelt, before replacing the balance shaft belt. Full service history can be viewd on our website. The Evo VI’s candle burned brightly for a mere two years before being replaced in March 2001 by the Evo VII. For many, the Evo VI remains the pinnacle of Mitsubishi Evo design for its style, aggression, and usability. An Evo VI is a car that, even today can comfortably cover ground faster than almost anything else on the road. The ‘Sprint’ was part of a series of ultra-hot and super-rare Ralliart-built UK cars; #001 with just 38,500 miles, in simply superb condition and with an impeccable service history.
