The Satellite Silver paintwork remains in great original condition, presenting well with only a handful of light blemishes to report. At the rear of the car there is a small area on the bumper that has been touched in and towards the front there are one or two small imperfections visible on close inspection. Elsewhere, commonly worn items such as the rear and side steps retain a smart satin black sheen, and the mud flaps look great in red. Having resided on the salt-free roads of Japan up until very recently, both the body and underside of this rare Pajero remain in superb 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 fold forward twice for an enlarged rear load space. The boot carpet remains entirely unmarked and in the rear door youll find the complete Mitsubishi toolkit.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Evolution is powered by the Mitsubishi 6G74 3.5-litre V6. The 24-valve DOHC engine features Mitsubishis 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. A fresh service has just been carried out for the new keepers piece of mind.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The six-spoke alloys are original to the car and remain free from any curb marking or damage. The polished faces show a little age-related wear but certainly nothing untoward for the age. The Mitsubishi centre caps are all present and correct and the wheels are shod in a matching set of rugged Yokohama Geolander all-terrain tyres, really helping to fill those vast flared arches.
The Pajero was first registered in December 1997. It was supplied new in Japan where it remained until June this year after being imported into the UK by 4 Star. The History File is complete with the original handbook, service booklet, Mitsubishi wallet, numerous Japanese service and inspection reports, as well as supplementary Japanese invoices. The car has been serviced at the following mileages: 441, 4k, 8k, 12k, 34k, 41k, 46k, 50k, and most recently at the current mileage. The MOT is valid until July 2019. This rare Evolution is chassis number 1566 of 2,500 examples produced for Dakar Rally homologation purposes.
