The Lancer Evolution VI was introduced in 1999 and was designed to be homologated for the Group A specification for the FIA World Rally Championship. The Evo VI achieved success in the 1999 season of WRC, driven by rally legend Tommi Makinnen, who won the season-opener in Monte Carlo. Makinnen scored a further 6 podiums, and secured his 4th Driver’s Championship title for the Japanese manufacturer.
While the car is based on the same platform as the Evo IV and V, the Evo VI was improved in several places. Among the changes was switching from a 3-axle format to a 2-axle mechanism on its powertrain to reduce countershaft within the gearbox and drive loss, which also made the car lighter. The main focus with this generation was to improve the cooling and durability of the 2.0-litre DOHC intercooler-turbocharged 4G63 engine, by sporting a larger oil pan, a massive intercooler, and installing new pistons and conrods, to name a few.
This example features an exterior finish of Scotia White, fitted with 17-inch O.Z. Racing alloy wheels, Recaro seats and Brembo brakes.
