The so called Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution, won the rally on Sunday 21st January. Drivers Stephane Peterhansel, Jean-Paul Cottret took the honours. What does this really show? Well for one thing, I'd love to see a BMW X3 in the dakar rally, actually I'd love to see a BMW X3 on a dirt road, let alone the dakar rally.
Mitsubishi says that the Pajero is
Designed and engineered to be used as a true off-road vehicle rather than a fashion accessory,
I guess, there is no better testiment to that than 7 consecutive dakar rally victories! Plus the the loyalty of over 2.5 million international customers since 1982.
The Mitsubishi Pajero is available in Australia in two body styles - both long- and short- wheel base - and with either a powerful 3.8 litre V6 petrol MIVEC engine or a 3.2 litre intercooled turbocharged common rail diesel power plant. So if your after a real 4WD with actual off-road capability... give the Pajero a go!
