The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition goes on sale at Baywest Mitsubishi, where it is shown to have only 99 km (62 miles) on the odometer. It is one of 350 final editions for the Canadian market, as well as one of 3,100 for the entire world.
In fact, the Mitsubishi dealership states that this is the “LATEST Lancer Evolution that has EVER been made !!” That’s right, it’s 350 out of 350 as indicated by the license plate in the photos! “. And if you weren’t already wowed by all those exclamation marks, here are a few more: “This car is completely new and it’s not a typo – it really only drove 99 km !! This car is immaculate and completely new. It was stored every winter in a heated room or in our showroom! “.

The exterior is painted white, and since this car is a Final Edition, it has a few differences from the regular Lancer Evolution, such as a black roof, a ‘Final Edition’ badge on the trunk, and a set. of BBS wheels. Other than that, it’s just a typical Evo, which is certainly not a bad thing with its distinctive wing, larger air intakes and Brembo brakes with bright red calipers.
The interior is fairly standard, with the only significant changes from the regular Evo being a contrasting red stitching and a plate indicating its serial number. The latter brings us to an interesting point, because according to this plate this car is number 350 out of 350, making it the last final edition for Canada. For comparison, the last final edition in the US market sold for $ 76,400 USD ($ 95,582 CAD) and it was brand new, so we wonder if the increased exclusivity alone (1 in 350 to 1 of 1,600) of this example is sufficient to justify the difference of US $ 41,818 (CA $ 52,317) in the asking price.
