    FYI it's a C73A Lancer GSR, factory 4WD DOHC turbo (4G61T)

    Long list of mods- hellish sleeper! One of a handful in Australia!

    Let me know what you guys think!

    Is it something about that particular GSR that makes it one of handful? As there are a great deal of them just in Sydney.
    I saw them as the poorman's EVO by comparison (not having a go though).

    The thing is- since when could you buy EVO's in Australia? EVO 6.5 was the first, and at $85,000 I doubt most people could afford them....

    These cars are basically baby Eterna ZR4's, with the sedan version (Mirage Cyborg) being a baby Galant VR4 (E39A)

    Like any decent mitsi in the era (1987-1997) everything is interchangeable, which is why it now has a VR4 RS 4G63T

    As you all know, the thing about imports (this one was imported under the 15y.o rule) is the shipping/compliance/rego costs involved. Different story if it was a local FWD GSR- heaps cheaper.

    My bone stock Cyborg (which is the sedan version of this GSR) cost me $6500 on the road, even with doing a lot of the compliance myself. Not exactly cheap, for a car that only cost $450 at auction in Japan.

    I know as well as anyone the costs involved with importing. But the problem is that you never get your money back, and unless you can find a Mitsubishi collector you'll struggle to find a buyer as the world isn't bursting with people keen to hand over $10k for a fairly stock looking old Lancer, regardless of rarity... I would have expected a value around the $6-8k mark, myself.

    Still cool though. Would be heaps of fun.

    I hear ya...

    I'm pretty sure the price is fairly negotiable, plus going off that list of mods- she's had $8-10k thrown into it!

    Ultimate sleeper! Runs mid 12's with alot more in it- easily worth $8k IMO

    With a nice set of rims, you'd be laughing.

    Yeah man for sure! Would be an insanely good little club car too. I'm guessing it'd be fairly nimble.
