If you’re a diehard Mitsubishi fan, owning a Lancer Evolution will likely be at the top of your bucket list. There have been many special versions of the car such as the Evo VI TME and the more powerful FQ variants. But the last of its kind—the Evo X-based Final Edition—is definitely one of the more desirable iterations of the iconic sports sedan.

Offered in 2015, the limited-run Final Edition cars put together the best of the Evo X. Based on the GSR variant, it was equipped with performance upgrades like a 303hp engine, Brembo brakes, Bilstein struts, Eibach springs, and 18-inch Enkei wheels. The sole transmission choice was a five-speed manual, and the car was a fitting send-off to the Mitsubishi model that captured the hearts of petrolheads around the world.

A thousand units were allocated for the Japanese home market. New Zealand received 30 cars, and Australia got 150. In North America, 1,600 vehicles went to the US and 350 made it to Canada.

This particular Lancer Evolution Final Edition is, quite literally, the very last one built for the Canadian market. The special plaque says it all. Oddly enough, this vehicle came with forged BBS rims from the upmarket MR trim level. It’s also fitted with a Rockford Fosgate sound system—an optional accessory.

The dealer—Baywest Mitsubishi in Ontario—claims that the car is in “pristine and completely brand-new” condition. It has only 99km on the odometer. Picky buyers will also be happy to know that this Evo was stored in a heated facility during winter.

If you’re prepared to part with Can$147,899 (P5.96 million), you’ll be able own a piece of Mitsubishi’s history. It’s also left-hand-drive, so registering it for Philippine use will probably not be an issue should it be legally imported. Interested? You can take a look at the listing here.
