We already mentioned that there were just a few Mitsubishi Lancer EVO vehicles still in circulation, and to commemorate the ending of an era for Mitsubishi, the automaker produced a set of Final Edition Lancer EVO vehicles to be sold off. The very first vehicle in the set went for a cool $46,200, which all went straight to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society. Well, the time has come for the very last of the Final Edition EVOs to sell off, and it went for quite a sum.
The Final Price
The last of the new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution vehicles sold at an online auction for a total price of $76,400. The lucky owner has the very last Lancer Evolution to ever sell, and will likely cherish the vehicle for many years.
The proceeds from that auction will go to aid two different charities, showing just how much Mitsubishi cares about community activism.
Donating to Charity
The proceeds from the auction of the last Lancer EVO Final Edition car will go to benefit two different charities. Half the money is going to the Feeding America Riverside/ San Bernardino food bank, and the other half will go to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. The donations should help to feed a lot of people throughout California, and that’s something to be thankful for.
The Lancer EVO Final Edition
The Lancer EVO Final Edition is a more potent version of the standard Lancer Evolution. This vehicle has a total of 291 HP and 300 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s more aggressively tuned and offers a lot of fun performance to drivers interested in going fast and having fun. A small selection of these vehicles were produced for fans of the Mitsubishi Lancer, and they’re now all sold off. It’s possible that you can pick up a used one today, but don’t expect to pay the retail price for the vehicle. Instead it will go for a handsome fee above the original price.
The Mitsubishi Lancer was a cool car for sure, but clearing it out of the way will just make space for the automaker to produce new vehicles for buyers to ooh and aww over.
