Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII

customer feedback

2 cars incl. 1999 Nissan Silvia Spec R

It needs a good clean (like someone drove it through a dust storm!) but I can see the car is mint. Thakns so much for your help in getting it, considering how much better it is than all of the local models I'm really glad I got this one in the end. I'd say this is even better than my old R33 which is saying something! The transport company took about a week longer than promised which sucked but otherwise everything was smooth.

The second evolution of the CT9A platform, for the first time the EVO 8 came equipped with a 6 speed manual transmission. With 208kW (280hp), electronically controlled 4WD, Active Yaw Control and an active centre diff the EVO 8 is devastatingly quick in even an amateur’s hands. The hood and front quarter panels are aluminium to reduce weight, and a carbon fiber rear wing was made optional.
