Mitsubishi Announces Auction of Lancer Evo Final Edition Number 1
Production of the popular Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is ending, but the performance car is going out with a bang with a Final Edition model. Mitsubishi will only manufacture 1,600 Final Edition models produced for the United States, each with a unique numbered plaque. Now, the public can get their hands on the Final Edition 1 of 1,600 produced—and all for a good cause.
Mitsubishi Motors North America is the title sponsor of the 29th annual MS Dinner Auction and is auctioning off the Lancer Evolution Final Edition Number 0001 to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
“We are thrilled and grateful Mitsubishi Motors has partnered with us as the title sponsor for this year’s annual MS Dinner Auction,” said Richard Israel, President of the National MS Society, Pacific South Coast Chapter. “With the support of Mitsubishi Motors we are able to fund cutting-edge research, drive change through advocacy, facilitate professional education, collaborate with MS organizations around the world, and provide programs and services designed to help people with MS and their families move their lives forward.”
The Final Edition Evolution concludes the popular car’s legacy with a five-speed transmission and a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This makes the Final Edition the most powerful mass-produces Evolution yet with 303 horsepower.
