TME - three letters that, on their own have little meaning but once put together will make any petrolhead smile. For those three letters spell out one of the most sought-after and celebrated road-going rally cars ever produced; Tommi Mäkinen Edition.

The Mitusbishi Lancer Evo VI TME was introduced as an ode to its namesake winning his 4th consecutive World Rally Championship, with 2,500 cars built worldwide.

Don't think it was a marketing gimmick however; the TME has come to be known as 'The Evo 6.5' and really meant business.  Based upon the Evo VI, the TME featured a turbocharger with a titanium compressor wheel to improve response and boosting a full 250rpm sooner. The steering rack was swapped to a closer ration unit; the suspension lowered and tuned alongside a new lower strut brace. The fuel tank was baffled to counter fuel surge at high cornering loads and the front bumper spotlights were lost for air intakes. The wheels were 17 inches and mimicked the design of the works rally car while on the inside, the Recaro seats were trimmed in red with the Tommi Mäkinen logo on the backrest and finished with a red stitched Momo steering wheel and gearknob.

Of the 2,500 cars produced, only 250 were officially imported into the UK and these official models are highly sought-after. This particular TME GSR is UK car number 172.
