1997 Mitsubishi Pajero Gen 2 Evolution

When it comes to SWB 4x4s, nothing did it better than Pajeros in the 90s - particularly when taking into account their racing success at Dakar! These Evolution Pajeros have flooded the Australian market recently (when I say flooded, there are maybe 5 currently for sale whereas 5 years ago, there was just one in the country). I always though that these are really the ultimate Japanese import suited to the Australian conditions.. Although, I'd be hesitant to take it off road given the rarity and collectability..

So these are a homologation special, built at the end of the era where Homologation was a requirement to compete in motorsport (i.e., you had to build a certain number of road going versions in order to enter a car in a race - unlike anything we have in racing or rally today unfortunately..

This example is finished in black, which I presume is rare (I've only seen a few - most are in white, and some in red from memory).. This one was asking $80,000 AUD in October 2022 on carsales.com.au (offered by a dealer).
