2005 Mitsubishi Evolution IX FQ-320

Finished in the very rare metallic Ruri Blue, this fastidiously owned example is a UK supplied Evolution IX FQ-320 that has covered just 57,875 miles and had 22 services from new.


Registered brand new in the UK on 25th July 2005, this stunning Ruri blue example falls into the cheaper tax bracket (1 year – £330 or 6 months – £181.50) and has been in the same private ownership for the last 9 years.

With a no-expense attitude being adopted the previous owner, the car has always been serviced on-time or early regardless of mileage covered, including greatly benefitting from a underside restoration and rear chassis leg replacement in January 2018 by Auto Torque at a cost in excess of £6k.

This process consists of the following:

  • New rear floor centre member between chassis legs
  • Full under body under seal, seam seal and cavity wax
  • Rear differential and rear lower arms fully poly bushed
  • Whiteline front and rear anti roll bar kit including droplinks
  • New fuel filler neck
  • New front wheel arch liners

Please note we have 100+ photographs documenting before, during and after the work available to show the full process carried out by Auto Torque.

The car comes with a large ring binder that documents and supports the extremely comprehensive history including the last service and belts which was carried out under 500 miles ago in March this year.

We have had many Evolution’s over the last 20 years and the exterior of the car is a prime example of a cared for car, which you don’t always necessarily see. Yes, you will find the odd light stone chip, but the car is exceptionally clean with no parking dents, scrapes or major chips to report.

The interior of the car as the pictures clearly show, is too in incredible condition with all switch gear virtually as new. To be extremely critical, you will find the slightest of wear to the driver’s seat bolster which you would expect, but with regards to the rest of the interior, no wear is present nor will you find any scuffs along the door cards or sills.

We welcome independent inspections, as all the cars on sale by Horsepower Hangar are HPi checked and mechanically inspected, so you know that you can buy with confidence from a long established specialist.

Please note that all viewings are strictly by appointment only.

Nationwide delivery can be also be arranged for any prospecting clients further afield.

To arrange a viewing or if you have any further questions that you would like answering, please do not hesitate to contact Jonathan on 07799 360 360.
