The 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX is a major car in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
Han Seoul-Oh gives Sean Boswell a brand new Lancer Evolution IX after he totaled the former's Nissan Silvia during a drift race against Takashi. Sean used the car to practice drifting. Soon, he eventually mastered the skill and began to win every drift race he participated in. He even went far as to beat Morimoto, one of Takashi's business partners. He totaled the car while attempting to escape from Takashi. It was presumably impounded thereafter.
After Sean kills Han's Silvia, Han lets him use this Evo IX instead. It has an Evo VIII end, which can lead to confusion -- but it's an Evo IX. Engine is a 2-liter turboed DOHC 4G63 with an RMR air intake system and downpipe. Front driveshafts were disconnected to make drifting an AWD car possible. Appearance mods include an APR body kit and rear wing, APR Racing side mirrors, and Ray's Wheels G-Games 99B 19" rims.
