Mitsubishi sending heritage cars to UK auction

14 vehicles on the docket at no reserve


Mitsubishi Motors is sending its entire 14-vehicle UK heritage fleet to auction, and at no reserve. 

The company gave no reason for the sale but said the cars will be offered in an online Auto Auction-run event throughout the month of April.

Among the cars being sold are two of the earliest registered in the UK, a Colt Lancer and a Colt Galant, the brand’s flagship sports cars of the 1980s and ‘90s, a Starion Turbo and a 3000 GT, as well as a Mitsubishi Jeep and Mk1 and Mk2 Shogun off-roaders.

However, the vehicles that are likely to draw the most interest are a trio of Lancer Evolutions, “all with low mileage and maintained to the highest standards,” Mitsubishi said. The cars represent the three generations of the Evo and include a Lancer Evolution VI Tommi Makinen Edition example.

Also on the docket are some Mitsubishi Motors private-number license plates, some with the MMC and CCC lettering representing Mitsubishi Motors and the Colt Car Company.

The auction catalog and introductory films featuring racer Tiff Needell are available on the auction website.
