FOR SALE: 1 of only 500 produced in manual, with just 36k miles.


Satellite Silver Metallic paintwork, Recaro cloth upholstery, 5-Speed manual transmission, Super Select 4WD system, Rear spoiler with side airdams, Aluminium skid plate, Four-wheel independent suspension (ARMIE), Privacy glass, Automatic air conditioning, Leather-trimmed steering wheel, Carbon-effect interior trim, Electrically adjustable door mirrors, ABS, Front SRS airbags, Ralliart mud flaps, MPH speedometer, Spare wheel, Toolkit.

One of only 500 manuals produced, this gleaming example is finished in Satellite Silver metallic. Full of character with vents and bulges the bodywork presents in stunning condition all round, entirely free from any unsightly chips, scratches, or scuffs. In March this year the car was treated to an extensive cosmetic refresh to a very high standard, the work including a full re-spray with fully refurbished trims and all-new body kit rubbers. The fresh paintwork now exhibits a deep glassy shine and uniform colour across every panel for a superb factory finish.

Equipped with attractive Recaro seats the interior of the Paj-Evo has a rugged yet pleasant aesthetic. The unmarked seats are upholstered in hardwearing cloth, the steering wheel is trimmed in leather, and the dash fascia is finished with carbon-effect trim, all in fantastic order. The rear seats are in equally fine condition and can fold forward twice to create a huge rear load space. The boot area is also particularly fresh. In-car entertainment is provided by a Kenwood CD player/monitor.

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 (MIVEC), 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 is in good original order without appearing overly dressed. Out on the road the car performs superbly, the slick manual gearbox a real pleasure to operate. The Super Select 4WD system also works 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 in 2019 at 34k miles and included replacement of the timing belt and water pump. We have just had the car fully inspected at the current mileage for the new keeper’s peace of mind. The MOT is valid until March 2021.

The original six-spoke alloys look great in satin black, with only a handful of small curb marks to mention. The wheels are shod in a brand new set of General Grabber all-terrain tyres that we have just had fitted at the current mileage. The brakes have also been checked and are in fine operational condition, pulling the car to a halt quickly and in a straight line; the front pads were replaced at 34k miles.

This low mileage example is one of just 2,500 Evos built to homologate Mitsubishi’s Dakar Rally T2-class Pajero; it is also understood to be one of only 500 produced in manual. The car was first registered in Japan in 1997 and arrived in the UK in 2002. The MPH speedo reads just 36,040 miles.

The current owner has recently spent in excess of £7,800 preparing the vehicle to his exacting standards, both mechanically and cosmetically. Over the last year or so the car has been treated to a full exterior refresh, underside treatment, major service and cambelt, four new tyres, and anything else required to bring it up to the first-rate standard in which it now presents. All in all, a fine example of the fast-appreciating and highly sought after Pajero Evolution, not to be missed with the rare manual ‘box.
