Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI

customer feedback

1999 Nissan Silvia Spec R

I had the pleasure of enlisting the services of J-Spec Imports through Ben Lippa in late 2006.

J-Spec leveraged their network in Japan to arrange an inspection and test drive of the car prior to purchase to ensure everything was as expected. From this inspection I received a detailed report, and well over 200 high resolution photos depicting every inch of the car. Given the positive outcome of the inspection I proceeded to purchase the car.

Since then my partner, based off my positive experience imported an R34 GTT. She was pleased to have been treated to the same professional service I had received prior. That being said I highly recommend the team at J-Spec Imports, and will surely be back in the future.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 6 (CP9A)

True to the Evolution philosophy the EVO 6 took the already potent EVO 5 and made minor changes, ever incrementally improving the breed. The EVO 6 mainly focused on improving engine cooling and durability as well as minor tweaks to other elements, and the EVO 6 now received a larger intercooler, larger oil cooler and new piston design, and body work was revised again. The chassis received 130 spot welds and a structural adhesive, and was now stiff enough that it can easily lift a rear wheel under aggressive cornering.

Many people consider the EVO 6 to be one of the rawest cars in the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution history, while not quite as refined as some of its later descendants, driven on the limit the light weight, high power and excellent chassis make the EVO 6 a real race car in street car's clothing.
