The first ever 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition built by the company is available for purchase on eBay.
The big change is that it is not going to cost you the sticker price but rather a hefty $88,888.
The final edition, as the name suggests, is the last of the series as Mitsubishi has decided to discontinue the series permanently. Only 1,600 models will be built and the base price of the car is at $36,000. Many of the cars built by the company are available on eBay. However, each one of them has a different pricing based on the number of the model. If it is going in the top 50 or 100, the car is priced much higher than it is supposed to be. The first ever model named Final Edition #0001 is available with a dealer based in Brooklyn, New York.
The particular dealer is ready to sell it to anyone who’s ready to shell out $88,888. The fact is, one can actually buy a much better model with a better powertrain, comfort and performance that the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition for the same price tag. After all, the $80k pricing easily pushes the buyer into the elite category where a range of automobile manufacturers offer some amazing sedans, coupes and trucks. But, if you are all about exclusivity and like to be in the distinct crowd, paying such hefty sum may not sound wrong just to be identified as a prominent collector of special edition cars.
According to the dealer, the pricing was decided based on customer demand. Earlier, a buyer was willing to pay double the price so as to own the last edition of one particular model. Based on such demands, the dealer decided to increase the price to exorbitant levels.
The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition packs a 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder engine which can deliver up to 303 horsepower coupled with 305 lb feet of torque. It uses huge Brembo brakes for the front tires and has shock absorbers supplied by Bilstein. Final Edition badges are what make the car stand apart from the rest of the crowd. They are used in multiple spots including the front and the rear, along with numbering. It makes it easier for the buyer to spot the one they are purchasing that made the #0001 kind of a unique asset to own.
