Lot 8 (Into the Groove, 9th July 2019)
2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX FQ360 Number 184
Registration Number: WX05 EGU
Chassis Number: CT9A0402689
Mitsubishi introduced the Lancer Evolution IX simultaneously in Japan and Europe on 3 March 2005, with the European launch taking place at the Geneva Motor Show. In the United Kingdom, the Evo IX used a different model designation from the rest of the world based on the car's horsepower. There were initially three models available: the FQ-300, FQ-320 and FQ-340, each with around 300, 320 and 340 PS (296, 316 and 335 bhp) respectively. An FQ-360 model was subsequently released as a successor to the Evolution VIII FQ-400. The new FQ-360 produced 366 hp at 6,800 rpm which was less horsepower than its predecessor, but it had more torque at 492Nm (363 lbft) at 3,200 rpm. While not officially confirmed, it is a widely held myth that FQ stands for F&!!@!& Quick.
Presented in silver with metallic grey five-spoke Rota alloy wheels and red Brembo calipers, the general condition is fair with fair signs of use. The black interior is standard with Recaro bucket seats, Ralliart mats and a Pro Sport boost gauge. The car ran well when recently viewed and the odometer showed a recorded 60,056 miles.
A V5C registration document and various papers accompany the car. The MoT expires 15 July 2019 and the car is under SORN.
Buyer's Premium for lots 1-10 will be at the reduced rate of 15% plus VAT.
Sold for £9,000
