Final Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Heads to eBay Auction

Before Mitsubishi Motors got itself in lots of trouble over the fuel economy scandal, the Japanese manufacturer announced that the future of the brand lies with crossovers and SUVs, not sedans. Hence, the Lancer Evolution X is the last of its kind.

The pictured car, bearer of plaque US1600, is the final Lancer Evolution X of the indifferently-named Final Edition. Provided that you were born under a lucky star, and you’ve got a few bucks to spare, US1600 can be yours. All you need is an eBay account. You’ve heard that right: an eBay auction.

Bidding is go at 9 a.m. PT on September 8 and concludes on September 15 at 9:00 a.m. PT. According to the Nissan-owned manufacturer, Mitsubishi will give all proceeds from the sale to charity. More specifically, the money will go to Feeding America Riverside of San Bernardino and Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. For what it's worth, Lancer EVO X Final Edition US1600 is a pretty serious piece of kit despite its rather old underpinnings.

Under the hood, the lucky bastard who will get his hands on US1600 will enjoy the pulse-pounding performance of a 16-valve four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. Thanks to 303 horsepower and 305 lb-ft (414 Nm) of torque, the Final Edition enjoys the title of most powerful Evolution to make it into series production. An old-school five-speed stick shift is the apparatus that sends the engine’s power to the wheels. That's right, five ratios, not six.

Speaking of power, everything’s kept in check by the rally-bred All-Wheel Control system. Other party pieces include Brembo 2-piece front brake rotors, Eibach springs, as well as performance-oriented Brembo 2-piece brake rotors up front. From an aesthetic standpoint, there’s Final Edition badging, an aluminum roof painted in black, Enkei alloys, and HID headlights.

As far as the interior is concerned, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Final Edition US1600 boasts black pillars, sun visors, assist handles and headliner, a gloss black center console box with a plaque that reads US1600, red stitching throughout the cabin, as well as Final Edition animation on the meter display.

So there you have it, the last EVO ever. On that note, did you know that the regular type of Mitsubishi Lancer soldiers on with a new face in China?
