Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution

customer feedback

1999 Mitsubishi GTO Twin Turbo

The GTO is finally here. It looks and drives fantastic, as best as I can tell so far. I only had a few minutes with it before I had to run back to work. It is much 'classier' than I imagined, and going by the condition it seems like it should only be a couple of years old - not thirteen.

Thanks again for all your help, made buying a car from overseas so simple.

Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution (V55W)

The Pajero Evolution (or PajEvo) is a rare rally homologation version made by Mitsubishi to compete in the Paris-Dakar rally, where it won nine events. For this rally in some classes cars had to be based on a production vehilce so 2,500 Pajero Evolutions were made, meaning these are quite rare vehicles.

Made from 1997 - 1999 the Pajero EVO had a 3.5L 24 valve V6 engine with MIVEC producing the maximum Japanese limit of 208kW / 276hp in place at the time. Most come with a 5 speed tiptronic auto, though there are fairly rare manual versions also available. Based on the short wheelbase, 3 door Pajero variant (not sold in Australia) the Pajero Evolution differers with the higher output 208kW motor, Recaro seats, significantly wider fenders with a wider track, vented bonnet, rear wing, upgraded suspension, limited slip differentials with a locking centre diff, and underbody protection.
