World record values expected as Mitsubishi Heritage Fleet auction enters its final week

  • Mitsubishi Motors in the UK Heritage Fleet auction enters its final week
  • Innovative online only auction platform has attracted over 2,000 registrations and bids from around the world
  • Vehicle and number plate auctions will end at staggered times after 5pm on April 30 2021
  • There will be a two-minute final bid pause before the auction closes: a virtual “going, going… gone”
  • Some of the Mitsubishi Motors in the UK’s cherished heritage fleet is expected to sell for world record prices

The Mitsubishi Motors heritage auction is now entering its final week before the hammer falls on all no-reserve lots on April 30. The first auction ends at 5.00pm with staggered ends for each auction after that. Any bid placed in the final two-minutes will extend the auction by a further two-minutes.

Unsurprisingly, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV Tommi Makinen Edition is currently (Friday April 23 09:00) the most sought-after car in the auction, with a top bid of £78,000 following a flurry of early bidding. It is expected to reach a world record price when it finally sells, while the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR FQ-360 by HKS is not far behind at £59,000 and could also potentially top the record £99,000 ($138,000) price paid for a Lancer Evolution IX in the US in 2017.

Other cars performing notably well include the Mk1 Shogun, at £14,000, the Mitsubishi Jeep J27 at £12,800, the Mitsubishi Starion at £16,600 and the Mitsubishi 3000GT which has attracted a top bid so far of £22,700. The Championship-winning Lancer Evolution IX rally car is currently £35,600 while the collection of private plates is also performing well with 1 CCC at £10,500 with the subsequent 2-9 CCC plates all achieving between around £4,000 and £5,000.

In total, the auction has totaled more than £400,000 and could top half a million pounds by the end of the auction on April 30. Interested parties can register and bid at www.autoauction.

The new Mitsubishi range is available to order now from Mitsubishi showrooms and via Mitsubishi Motors’ Buy Online service: mitsubishi-motors.co.uk/buy
