1:43 Mitsubishi Lancer 6.5 Carisma

A model that is hard to catch, but I was fortunate to find one. This is an IXO brand and was driven by Freddy Loix with co driver Sven Smeets. Loix and Smeets moved to Mitsubishi in 1999 and drove a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6. It was a difficult year for Loix who suffered an accident during the Safari Rally.

The car is a 1997cc 4cyl turbo 4G63 engine with 300hp maximum. Fed by an ECI Multi Injection system, a manual 6 speed sequential gear box, and rides on 4wd.

Enjoy the pictures!
