Having built project cars ourselves, there are times when you just want to give up. And apparently despair got the better of the owner of this partially-finished Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR Coupe.

Sporting a widebody conversion, the coupe modification and a slew of performance upgrades, not to mention some iForged wheels, it actually looks as though this may be an abandoned project car by the folks at Fox Marketing – known for building SEMA show cars for the likes of Lexus. We also find it hard to believe someone took a virgin car with just 3,736 miles on the odometer and hacked it apart like this.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Mitsubishi had commissioned this car for SEMA last year and then pulled out of the show as the recession took hold.

While we certainly can’t say we love it, if you’re interested in this one-of-a-kind EVO Coupe and you’re willing to invest some more dollars into finishing it then you’re in luck. While the eBay listing has since concluded, the seller’s reserve price wasn’t met, meaning if you are interested then check out the listing for contact info.
