1997 V55W MITSUBISHI PAJERO EVOLUTION 3 DOOR SWB 4×4.
This is the road-legal version of the very successful Pajero Evolution 4×4 Rally vehicle. It was produced between 1997 and 1999 and is based on the second generation Pajero, but has many features unique to the model.
Mitsubishi produced approximately 2500 examples of the Pajero Evolution, in order to homologate the type for the Dakar Rally’s production-based T2 class. This in turn, makes them quite rare and unique.
The two-door body incorporates large flared mudguards, two fin-like rear spoilers, a bonnet scoop, and various other racing-inspired styling elements. Skid plates and mudflaps were included for
additional off-road protection.
Suspension used on the Evolution is unique to this model and consists of double wishbone independent suspension on the front and a multi-link independent suspension on the rear.
It is powered by the very capable 3.5-litre 24-valve DOHC V6 6G74 engine with MIVEC and a dual plenum variable intake which is mated to a 5 speed auto with sports shift & Mitsubishi’s famous Super-Select II dual range transmission (with front and rear Torsen differentials) which is great for heading offroad or for when you need extra traction on gravel or wet slippery roads.
The Pajero Evolution is a very capable 4-wheel-drive and is perfect for when you want to head off the beaten track but is just as ease when driving around town.
