The Satellite Silver paintwork remains in great original condition, presenting well with only a handful of minor blemishes to report, the worst being some very light marks in one or two discreet areas. Elsewhere, commonly worn items such as the side steps retain a smart black sheen with no damage or fading to note. The Jaos competition-style mudflaps really add to the sense of occasion, and the rear privacy glass is a welcome addition. Genuine Mitsubishi wind deflectors are also fitted. Furthermore, having resided on the salt-free roads of Japan up until recently, both the body and underside of this rare Pajero remain in remarkable rust-free condition.
Equipped with attractive Recaro seats the interior of the PajEvo has a rugged but purposeful aesthetic. The seats are upholstered in hardwearing cloth that also extends to the door cards. The steering wheel is trimmed in leather and the dash fascia is finished with carbon-effect trim. The rear seats are also in very good order and boast individual folding armrests; the seats fold forward twice for a huge rear load space. The boot carpet is entirely unmarked and in the rear door you’ll still find the original toolkit.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The Evo is powered by the 6G74 3.5-litre V6. The 24-valve DOHC engine features Mitsubishi’s Innovative Valve Timing and Electronic Lift Control, which varies the timing of the intake and exhaust camshafts to increase the power and torque output over a broad engine speed range.
The engine bay of this example maintains a particularly fresh appearance with no signs of any damage or poor repair. The car pulls well on test and shifts smoothly through each of the five gears. The Super Select 4WD system also operates just as it should, combining the advantages of part-time and full-time four-wheel drive with four additional drive options. The last service was carried out just a few hundred miles ago and following a recent inspection the car boasts a clean bill of health.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The original six-spoke alloys have been freshly refurbished to an amazing standard by Lepsons. All five present with an impeccable diamond cut finish, as per original spec. The Mitsubishi centre caps are all present and correct and the wheels are shod in a matching set of rugged Bridgestone all-terrain tyres, really filling those vast box arches. On test the brakes operate well, pulling the Evo to a halt quickly and in a straight line.
This example is one of just 2,500 Evolutions built to homologate Mitsubishi’s Dakar Rally T2-class Pajero. It was first registered in December 1997, remaining in Japan until its recent UK import last year. The car is accompanied by the original owner’s manual, maintenance booklet, and spare key. It has been serviced at the following mileages: 1k, 15k, 19k, 20k, 20k, 20k, and most recently at 34k miles. The car will be sold with 12 months MOT upon sale for the new keeper’s piece of mind.
