Just saw this thread. A few Qs / observations:

1. I thought SAD was a component of duty that was charged on all imported cars
2. How do you import a non-homologated 2 LITRE car? From what you guys are saying it appears that you are of the opinion that you have to pay 4% additional duty if you bring-in a car that is not eligible to be imported under the 3L / $40,000 "no-homologation required" rule. Surely that can't be correct?
3. I'm surprised that the rotors are not cross drilled. This indicates that the car is likely one of the lower-spec Evo X models.
4. Why register a car in Thane and then take it to Bangalore? Are the Bang taxes higher than Thane? What about Bombay?

At any rate, great car! Hope the new owner thoroughly enjoys it!

Karl, the car sint registered in Thane. It is the new, New Bombay Resgistration that started a few years ago. And Price is considerably low. Also, As you Said, the Rotors are not Cross Drilled so it is a Base Evo. Not an FQ version.

O.T.-Your car is back in bombay eh??

How can these vehicles having engines smaller than the prescribed capacity be imported? Anybody in the know? Another thread has pics of a Mini Cooper. Anyway, great car! Cheers!

Well if this is the base version then it retails for something equivalent to Rs.12.5 lakhs in indian currency.you can check the base model price in the japanese mitsubishi website.

now here is a quote i got for the Evo X.



2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 10 ( Manual Transmission)



Cost - 44,000$ X 45 = 19,80,000
Freight and Insurance - 2500$ X 45 = 1,12,500

Duty (114%) = 22,57,200
Fine and Penalty(25%) = 4,95,000
Clearing Charges = 2,00,000

TOTAL( landed cost) = Rs 50,44,700/-

Service Charge will be 2% of landed cost.
Cost subject to fluctuation in exchange rate.




now here is what i have researched-

The base model RS is for close to 300,0000 YEN which sums up to nearly 28000$

The GSR performance pack version is for close to 370,0000 YEN which sums up to 34000$

The prices are from these web pages

for the RS version

RS | グレード / 価格 | ランサーエボリューションX | 乗用車 | カーラインアップ | MITSUBISHI MOTORS JAPAN

for the GSR high performance package

GSR High Performance Package | グレード / 価格 | ランサーエボリューションX | 乗用車 | カーラインアップ | MITSUBISHI MOTORS JAPAN

both the prices are for the manual transmissions only.

The website is in japanese but you'll spot the the price bar as its in the centre.


now what i want to know is where does this 44000$ figure come from.

I'd not like to disclose where i got this quote from.but its from a reliable and well known importer.So i most of you might be able to guess it.

Navpreet318 i was informed by the MItsubishi person in bombay yesterday the EVO would cost around 27lacs ex showroom. with registration and other formalities it would be 32 lacs or so.
why go through the hassle of a dealer when you can get it officially from the dealership.

You should be used to all this by now. People who have money to buy them are usually too lazy to do things themselves and accept the fact that they have to get ripped off to buy these.

I heard that in Australia, a C-class Mercedes sells for an S class price (US Prices). Certain makes are taxed heavily. There is a 25% tax on any vehicles costing over 57K Aus $ I guess and a C300 that costs 34K $ in US costs 76,000 US $ in Australia.

Even US has a steep tax on trucks that are imported into that country. So India is not alone in that aspect. Different countries have different tax laws and for a purpose.

They'll have to detune it cos of indian fuel. The Evo needs 93 octane in the US so essentially no fuel in India is good enough for it. Expect it to be ~15-20hp less.
