Mitsubishi GSR/ EVO I-X/ RVR
Considering that most Mitsubishi EVOs didn’t come here via official channels, Australia has amassed a good array of these Lancer-based road-rockets. Pre-2000 model cars are scarce but as yet aren’t commanding big money. $20,000 buys some investment potential. Tommi Makinen [TME] versions were built in RS or GSR form and 100 were allocated to Australia with current values well above those for cars that arrived as used imports, The EVO VII introduced automatic transmission and those cars are generally cheaper than manuals. EVO IX and locally-sold EVO X models are frequently advertised at $40,000 but a packed market sees sales at $30-35,000. RVR Hypergears with EVO III mechanicals are interesting and even cheaper than the sadly ignored GSR sedan.
GSR $6500  EVO I-V1 $19,515  EVO 6.5 Makinen $29,615  EVO VII-VIII $21,835  EVO IX-X $34,145  RVR Hypergear $5735
