Mitsubishi released its first factory works edition for the legendary Lancer Evolution series in January 2000: the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI Tommi Makinen Edition. The Tommi Makinen Edition, also known in some circles as the, “T.M.E” or “Evo 6.5”, was created by Mitsubishi to commemorate the record 4 consecutive WRC championships won by Mitsubishi driver Tommi Makinen. The “TomiMaki”, as the car is known in Japan, is most popular with Rally enthusiasts in the UK and Europe where many are exported to. Many more are still available to be had at Japanese auto auctions.
On the outside, the Tommi Makinen Edition had an optional special paint package, Passion Red with grey, black and white stripes, that was inspired by the Tommi Makinen WRC works car and wore the same design Enkei 17” wheels. On the inside, the car came equipped with Recaro bucket seats with the Tommi Makinen logo stitched into the back rest.
Inside the engine bay, the Tommi Makinen Edition had a titanium alloy turbocharger with a modified compressor wheel which helped create maximum torque at only 2750 RPM; maximum horsepower remained unchanged. The ride height was also dropped 10 mm to optimize the front and rear roll centers. Additionally, a front strut tower bar was added and on road steering response was improved by changing the gearing on the steering box.
In 2001, Tommi Makinen started of the season by winning 3 of the first 10 races of the WRC season using a highly modified Tommi Makinen Edition. However, he switched to a different WR car for the last 4 races and only managed to rank 3rd at the end of the season, thus putting an end to his record consecutive winning streak.
This particular TomiMaki is on its way to a customer in the UK. This is one of many Tommi Makinen editions that Japan Car Direct has sourced and export. The original paint, low miles and clean interior are a must and this one has all three.

I hunted the internet for a broker I could trust with my money. JDC won and I am so happy I went with them. Matt and Yoshi are great. Matt puts up with a very demanding customer in me, I can certainly take up time. Matt sends me cars from the list I sent him, when I don't have time to check the auction. It is scary how accurate Matt is when I ask him to predict a selling price. He is always very close which sometimes is not fun but he really does know pricing. They have walked we through buying two cars now and have held my hand on both. I really apricate all the time and knowledge. After purchase they have also held my hand through the whole import process which can be daunting for a first timer. I am a dealer and Matt is great at suggesting other cars to import as well. I am very satisfied with my choice
What can I say? The service was friendly and good, and I got my car, which ended up being in a better condition than expected. Sure, there were couple of unforeseen snags that no-one had anticipated, but overall, it was an extremely positive experience.
Hommat meni hyvin, auto tuli Suomeen eikä noiden pyytämä hintakaan ollut mikään mahdottoman paha.
I bought a 1993 RX7 FD from these guys they are great! Communication was very good, and prompt! Iv has my car now for 6 months and have been loving it! I would recommend emailing them and looking into the options! They are upfront about price and will steer you into the right direction on what the car will take to own! I’m working with Yoshiro to buy another car now! I’m very pleased with the service I received. It can be scary sending lots of money to a person you don’t know for a car you have never seen, but they will come through with everything they tell you they will do!
