Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution – why can’t we buy one?

Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution – why can’t we buy one?

You used to be able to buy a Pajero Evolution, but that was 10 years ago. Mitsubishi is about to have a crack at its 13th win at the Dakar rally (and its eighth in a row), but you can’t even buy anything remotely like the vehicle it usesĀ (you can read about it by shift-clicking here). Doesn’t this kind of make a mockery of the model range? I mean, Audi doesn’t call its Le Mans racer the same as its standard range. The R10 is the Le Mans car, the R8 is the next one down – the road car.

And in touring car racing (which Audi has just won in Germany) it uses an A4, and it even still looks like an A4.

Am I imagining this, or is Mitsubishi missing a marketing opportunity – a limited edition run of hardcore Pajero Evolutions that will work on the road, but will also be absolute demons off-road. I’m sure there’s a market for several thousand worldwide.

Hmmm…not quite getting the fuel economy I expected from the Polo BlueMotion

Well, it's not really the Polo BlueMotion's fault. A combination of having to drive from Grey Lynn to Papatoetoe and...
