2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX sells for $138,000

For 11 years, the vehicle sat in a warehouse gaining value for South Coast Mitsubishi of Costa Mesa, California. The dealer put it up for auction and 80 bidders raised the price to $100,954 beyond the original $37,000 MSRP. Across the ocean, the used car auctions in Japan offer the world’s largest selection of JDM vehicles, yet experience little domestic competition. High supply with little demand means lower prices to the consumer.

The Graphite Grey 2006 Lancer Evo IX MR was in perfect condition with factory wrapping still on the seats. As an MR edition, it included extras like a 6-speed manual transmission, “Zero Lift” aero package, BBS wheels and Bilstein dampers. It also offers all-wheel drive and a 286 bhp engine that delivers 0 to 62 mph acceleration in just 4.4 seconds.

The 9th generation Evo was the last of the small, light Evos and many consider it the best generation ever. However, all Evos are renowned for their incredible power and handling and they are becoming more collectible since Mitsubishi stopped production of Lancer Evo in 2016.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evos are among the most popular sports cars in history because they put some supercars to shame at family sedan prices, and many in Japan were driven just for that purpose. Their independent suspension, highly rigid chassis and three-differential AWD keep the tires glued to the road in nearly all driving conditions, and their high-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder inline engines delivers exhilarating acceleration.

Mitsubishi started exporting Evos in 1998 after years of selling them only in Japan. Still, the best deals are to be had in Japan, where secondhand Lancer Evos in superior condition, can be purchased at lower prices from specialist dealers, private sellers, and at Japanese used car auctions. Japan Car Direct has helped several Evo enthusiasts find their dream Lancer Evos in Japan and export them to their new homes. Examples include the following:

 

Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX : 2000 Lancer RS Evo VI exported by Japan Car Direct

2000 Lancer RS Evo VI

Raw, rally-bred excitement with a rip-roaring 300 hp, which is a lot for a small unmodified sports sedan. This bare-bones RS version is stripped of superfluous features to reduce weight, boost acceleration and sharpen handling reflexes.

2006 Lancer Evo Wagon

An attractive sub-five-second 0-60 mph sports car that combines the reliability and everyday practicality of a station wagon with handling that lets you carve through hard corners with rail-like precision.

1999 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI Tommi Makinen

Launched in 2000 to commemorate Makinen’s four consecutive World Rally Championship titles, combined style and power. The TomiMaki, as it’s known in Japan, featured rally car decals, embossed Recaro seats, distinctive white Enkei wheels while propelling it from 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds with its 276HP powerplant. Its top speed is 150mph.

  • 5 star review  Do yourself a favor, call Mathew at Japan Car Direct. Let him take the worry about doing business over seas off your plate. Not knowing anything about importing vehicles from Japan, I spent countless hours studying and trying to figure it all out. The headaches were too much! After Mathew walked me through the process it was a piece of cake. We've already bought a couple and are now buying more with complete confidence. Thanks guys, much much appreciated.

    5 star review  Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.

    5 star review  Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.

  • 5 star review  Yoshi and team were patient in helping me find the right car (green 2016 Prius 4WD) and get me through the process. Flawless service, prompt response to communications, on delivery the car was better than expected, very close to new looking. Their recommended partners for shipping and entry into NZ were on the ball too. Highly recommended! Pro tip: don't mess around; decide exactly what you want, then bid to win.

    5 star review  I had been toying with the Idea of importing a Land Cruiser from Japan for a while and to be honest was quite hesitant about doing so, as the process for a first timer seemed quite daunting. Mathew at JCD made the whole process SUPER EASY! Been a pleasure dealing with him and was kept informed every step of the way and super fast communication kept the whole process stress free! Thanks again Mathew and I'm looking forward to the next Cruiser! Cheers!!

    5 star review  I was daunted by the prospect of purchasing a vehicle overseas. Mathew was right there to offer direction and assurance along the way. He was quick to respond and most importantly, his word was good. Everything came to pass as he advised. The only point that went differently from his anticipation was the duty tax, which inherently has room for interpretation and may depend on the port of delivery. Would I go to Mathew and JCD again? Absolutely! With his help I obtained a suzuki carry with 8k miles, 4wd hi/lo w/ diff lock, in excellent condition, for a total of 5k from auction to driveway--tremendous value in my estimation. Thanks Mathew, the little truck is a fine addition to the farm. My kids, and my wife, love to drive it:)

  • 5 star review  Mathew at Japan Car Direct has been a HUGE help and continually went above and beyond with assisting me. It was my first time bidding on vehicles at auction and having them shipped to the US. He even helped me arrange a mechanic in Japan to do some work on the Hiace I purchased so that it would arrive in the US in tip top shape and be ready to hit the road. I look forward to doing more business with Mathew in the future and you should too!

    5 star review  I was totally clueless and was having a really hard time finding someone that I felt I could trust to help me with these auctions. A couple folks recommended Mathew over at JCD and I very reluctantly reached out. Yeah, I have trust issues. Dude put me at ease and really walked me through the whole process. After a couple months I didn’t end up buying a vehicle, but that’s on me. When I changed my direction, Mathew helped me wrap things up and wished me well. I have zero reservations about reaching out to these guys or recommending anyone else to do so. Very helpful, knowledgeable, prompt and everything I needed. You won’t be disappointed.

  • 5 star review  Discovered KEI vehicles about a year ago and spent many hours searching the internet in hopes of finding an affordable van state side, to no avail. That is until I sent a message to Mathew at JCD. He was quick to respond, answered way too many of my silly questions, and worked diligently to find the right van for me. He is thorough, clear, and timely. Made the process simple and enjoyable. I am more than excited to work with him again. I highly recommend the service these gentlemen provide.

    5 star review  Matt made importing a few mini trucks for our farm a breeze. Super easy to deal with and transparent with all the details involved in bidding and winning auctions, the import process, and everything in between.

    5 star review  My truck had been stolen and Matt was helping me bid on mini-trucks to replace it. Of course once we started bidding the truck was recovered, but Matt was upfront and very helpful both getting into and out of our auction based relationship. I would not hesitate to work with JCD again!

  • 5 star review  I worked with Mat and i believe i couldn't have done any better. This was my first time dealing with importing, Mat was so patient and helpful through this purchase. I also feel he got me the best deals, i have since the first purchase made two more and will continue to do business with Mat.

    5 star review  I purchased three vehicles from auction with Matt, he made it extremely easy and was available whenever I needed him throughout the entire importing process. This is not the last time I will be dealing with them. I plan to order more vehicles in the near future! If your looking for a trustworthy company to order vehicles through I highly recommend JCD!
