Here’s what happened at the Mitsubishi Motors heritage auction

KUALA LUMPUR: It was only recently that the Mitsubishi Motors heritage auction got over and it generated a huge collection of £627,100 (approx. RM 3.59 million), which attracted a total of 1,287 bids across all 51 categories. The event was organised in the UK and on auction were some of the automaker’s heritage models.

Paul Bridgen, Mitsubishi UK Operating Director said, “These vehicles represent not only a huge part of Mitsubishi’s heritage and history in the UK, they are also very special vehicles in their own right. They each have a unique story to tell and they have been cherished and cared for from the day we acquired them.”

He further added, “I have overseen the development of some of these vehicles personally so it is difficult to say goodbye to them but the values they have achieved assures me that they will all go to enthusiastic new owners who understand the provenance and importance of these cars and who will cherish them and preserve them for future generations”.

Now, on offer were several iconic Mitsubishi cars, but the one that created the most hype and generated the most cash was the Lancer Evolution VI Tommi Makinen Edition. With a bid of £100,100 (RM 573k), the car broke the 2017 record set by the Evo IX that went for £99,000 (RM 567k).
