Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 7
Following on form the previous Lancer Evo line, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 7 was based on the larger Lancer Cedia platform, resulting in more weight, but made up for with multiple changes to the chassis. The differential was hugely upgraded as was the engine torque, although they insisted on claiming only 280 bhp (see previous pages).
As these cars were produced from 2001 to 2003, there are many more about in the UK and it is the Evo VII model onwards that we mostly quote for with our Lancer Evo insurance. An automatic drivetrain was also possible but most of our clients stick to the manual box – the ‘drivers’ car.
Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 8
The Lancer Evo 8 followed on in 2003 and was produced until 2005. For some this is the car to have and we therefore insure many of these under our Mitsubishi insurance. Still with the quoted 280bhp, Enkei wheels, Brembo brakes, Bilstein shocks, and a 5 speed box, all came as standard. Sales of this car were so great that we saw the introduction of ‘proper’ power models – the FQ300, FQ320, FQ340, and the bonkers FQ400. The Ralliart FQ400 produced more than 410bhp, a 0-60 time in 3.5 seconds, and the ability to keep up with a Lamborghini Murcielago at the Top Gear track!
Whichever car you drive in the Evo range, any of the above need real respect and a mature hand to drive. If you have the necessary experience and the vehicle has good security, then please do call us for cover. Our Japanese car insurance schemes are targeted at the enthusiast driver which certainly includes the Lancer Evo VII and Evo VIII.

Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
