Following the success of the initial batch of brand new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X RS road cars made available by MML Sports in 2013, the company has ordered a second, larger batch with delivery expected in early March 2014.
The company developed a relationship with Mitsubishi to supply brand new RS versions of the EvolutionX direct from the Mitsubishi factory in Japan. These cars are renowned as the base for motorsport preparation, featuring basic trim and equipment options, ready to be removed and replaced by more appropriate equipment when built for rallying, circuit racing or time attack series.
With the initial batch sold and not even touching UK soil before being shipped directly to customers around Europe, MML Sports has put in a second, larger order for standard cars with arrival into Europe anticipated for March 2014.
While these will also be standard RS models, several upgrades are possible by special order. For example, the steel wheels and small brakes can be replaced by larger brakes and alloy wheels on the assembly line, if specified early enough in the build process. Customers requiring these options should specify when ordering before the end of 2013.
Cars can either be collected from MML Sports’ Daventry-UK base, registered in the UK and with all relevant taxes and import duties paid or they can be delivered to any location in Europe, within and outside the European Union, for import duties to be paid locally.
Commenting, MML Sports Managing Director John Easton said; “The response to the first batch of EvoX RS models was fantastic, with all cars sold before they even left Japan, so we have decided to increase the size of our second order, making almost three times the number of cars available.
“It demonstrates that there is still a huge demand for this models, either for the motorsport world or for the high performance road tuners. The option to specify large brakes and alloy wheels for factory fitment is also significant, as it means that the cars can be partially prepared for the performance tuning market as soon as they arrive, cutting down on the necessary time and expense.
“We will be keeping several of the cars ourselves for projects for 2014 while customers can order their EvoX RS either by contacting us directly or through the online webshop on our website. They can then either collect from us or we can arrange for delivery direct to the customer.”
