Autotrader Find: New 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution for $88,000

Here’s a brand-new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution for sale on Autotrader. This wouldn’t be all that unusual, except Mitsubishi stopped offering the Lancer Evolution as a new car following the 2015 model year — and this one is priced at $87,888.

That high price is due to the fact that this Evo is a little more special than most. It’s a 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution "Final Edition," which was the very last batch of Evo models built to commemorate the end of the car’s run after almost 25 years on the market. More importantly, it’s Final Edition Evo number 0001 — the first of the last. And it’s never been driven, as it remains a new car with just 35 delivery miles on the odometer — quite possibly the very last new Evo still left.

Does all that justify a price of $87,888? I’m not sure — but there’s no doubt collectors will someday cherish this car, as the Evo was an icon of the high-performance Japanese car world for decades. It was also long considered "forbidden fruit" before Mitsubishi finally brought it to North America for the 2003 model year in the form of the Evolution VII. This model, the Evolution X, really is the end of the line.

If you’re interested, it’s offered for sale at Brooklyn Mitsubishi in Brooklyn, and it appears to be safely tucked away inside, away from the elements or anything else that could damage what’s likely one of the more special Mitsubishi models since the 3000GT went out of production. As the saying goes: They don’t make them like this anymore. In fact, they don’t make them at all. Find a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution for sale

  1. It is sad to see how badly Mitsubishi has declined. The went from the makers of the Evo to the makers of the Mirage overnight.

  2. Actually it would make an interesting poll question… would you value a serial #1 evo more than reportedly the last serial number, of the “final edition”. 

  3. Ok, it’s interesting and somewhat limited. Is it worth more than a regular Evo? Maybe, since it’s new, but it’s NOT worth more than MSRP. It should be cheaper since obviously the market for these isn’t great. Main reason alone is you can still buy the STi new, which is probably a better car regardless and there’s plenty of nice used Evo’s around from the same model year. 

    It’s worth a bit more than a used ’15 Evo (which is around $30k), so maybe $32,500?
    • There was a EVO 9 that sold for $138,000 in 2017.  Remember supply and demand.  The EVO 9 is almost like a EVO 8 but slightly upgraded. Same chassis.  Why would someone pay that much for a EVO 9 with only delivery miles? They car will become legendary in it’s lifetime it has lot of things going for it.    Someone offered me $21k for mine with a cracked windshield and 112k on the odometer.  I actually had multiple people offered to buy my car.  The EVOs are really that good.  Another EVO 9 sold for 16K with 175k on the odometer……supply and demand……
