Mitsubishi Evolution X FQ-400

The ultimate car for the Evo purist?

You may remember we were lucky to spend some time in one of the rarest Evo’s on the planet (view video here) and now the guys at Spencer and Scott have this exact car for sale!

The car, a Mitsubishi Evolution X FQ-400, is a number 34 of 35 and was apparently custom made for the Managing Director of Mitsubishi UK.

Mitsubishi and WRC Developments took the already successful GSR FQ-360 and created the FQ-400. The FQ-400 has high-flow fuel injectors, a new hybrid turbo that’s specially strengthened to deal with the faster turbine speeds and higher temperatures, a more capable intercooler plus re-mapped engine management. All this equates to 403bhp (that’s over 200bhp per litre) and 0-62mph in 3.8seconds! To help with the additional power the FQ-400 features new Bilstein dampers and Eibach springs for a 30mm lower stance plus a slightly wider track.

Production was in limited numbers and a total of only 35 units were built.

Car no. 34 is a genuine UK supplied car through the official Mitsubishi Specialist Vehicles Operations Centre, first registered 27/9/12, owned by the CEO of Mitsubishi (Mr Lance Bradley), and having covered a total of 21,991miles.

Finished in Orient Red Metallic paint with Blue Leather/Techno Suede seat trim.
