Imported new, by a UK Mitsubishi dealership for a customer so full UK history from new. Full service history Full MOT history Original paintwork Original spare keys All original booklets Immaculate interior With ‘The Gran Turismo era’ cars climbing in value quickly over the last 12 months, the red Tommi Makinen Editions are in serious demand and are tipped as a fantastic future investment, we are very pleased to offer this fantastic example which would look at home in any serious car collection, or indeed this example is ready to be enjoyed as a weekend luxury. History: Accompanying this example, is a vast and thorough history file as can be seen below, perfectly warranting the very low genuine mileage. Each service stamp has a matching invoice, and also within the file are various brochures relating to the Tommi Makinen Edition, as well as the original spare keys and original booklets (held within the original Mitsubishi wallet). MOT History: 2003 – 14,841 miles 2004 – 17,528 miles 2005 – 19,334 miles 2006 – 20,852 miles 2007 – 21,798 miles 2008 – 22,364 miles 2009 – 23,005 miles 2010 – 23,335 miles 2011 – 24,048 miles 2012 – 24,779 miles 2013 – 25,121 miles 2015 – 25,248 miles 2016 – 25,899 miles 2017 – 26,951 miles Service history: 2000 – 1,524 miles 2001 – 4,729 miles 2001 – 8,761 miles 2002 – 10,100 miles 2003 – 13,110 miles 2003 – 15,505 miles 2004 – 16,732 miles 2004 – 17,975 miles 2005 – 19,040 miles 2005 – 20,030 miles 2006 – 20,543 miles 2006 – 21,311 miles 2007 – 21,984 miles 2008 – 22,588 miles 2009 – 23,068 miles 2010 – 23,392 miles 2011 – 24,598 miles 2012 – 25,059 miles 2013 – 25,178 miles 2015 – 25,539 miles 2016 – 26,015 miles Please note that the 2015 service was a major service including timing belt so this is not due. Body & Paintwork: As with the rest of the car, the bodywork is in very good order, with no damage or corrosion on the car at all. The original passion red paintwork still looks great (measured with a paint depth gauge to confirm original paintwork), and the stripes finish the car off fantastically. Only the bumpers have been painted, the front for a few stonechips and the rear when the UK style fog light was fitted. Anybody who knows these cars will know that, like most Japanese cars of the era, the paint is quite thin and quite soft so are susceptible to marks/chips – this example in in great condition with only a very few small stonechips and this is being very fussy.. All badges are in very good condition, as are all the lights. The decals are all original Mitsubishi items, and not cheap/aftermarket items. The wheels are unmarked, and present really well. An extremely well presented example throughout. Interior & Trim: The interior of these cars can quite often be the downfall, with many showing signs of age/wear throughout, but particularly the front seat bolters, and the top of the rear seats tend to show fading due to UV exposure. This example is immaculate inside! Both front seats are in great condition, with none of the usual ‘bobbling’ material on the bolsters, and likewise the rears are fantastic, with barely any fading to the top of the seats at all. Being without modification inside is almost unheard of, no extra gauges here, or screw holes on the dashboard. The gearknob and handbrake handles are like brand new, as are the pedal rubbers and the steering wheel is only showing very light ‘shining’ from usage, but this is very minimal. We have had a few very good condition Tommi Makinen’s through our doors now, but this without doubt is the best interior we have seen in one. Engine: The somewhat legendary 4G63….. With only 26k miles, this engine feels as fresh as the day it left the factory. The service history demonstrates that this car / engine has been maintained fastidiously, with enthusiast ownership throughout you can be sure the car requires no mechanical works. Starting from cold, the car does not smoke, and the engine does not have the usual tapping when cold (or warm for that matter). When driven the car has great performance, even by today’s standards this is still a very capable machine. Smooth power delivery throughout the rev range, with no smoking either when on boost or on overrun. The engine bay itself presents very well, without any modifications. Anybody familiar with these cars will know that brackets, fixings, and bolts do show signs of age very quickly/easily, but as the pictures demonstrate this example is in great order. Running Gear: As with the rest of the car, all running gear is in perfect operating order. The brakes are very effective, and pull the car to a confidence inspiring stop, nice and straight. All suspension is without any noises, and handling is simply sublime. The gearbox is without any crunching either changing up or down the gears, and the clutch is a pleasure to use. All wheels are unmarked, and have matching premium tyres fitted.
