Mitsubishi Pajero Wins The 2007 Dakar Rally
For The Seventh Consecutive Time

 

 

22nd January, 2007

Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution - 2007 Dakar Rally

On Sunday 21st January, Stephane Peterhansel, Jean-Paul Cottret and their Pajero Evolution won the infamous Dakar Rally, giving Mitsubishi Motors its 12th overall victory and an amazing seventh win in a row.

The Dakar Rally is recognised as one of the most gruelling rallies in the world and Mitsubishi has proudly participated in it a remarkable 25 times. The company's consistent success in the rally is another reminder of how Mitsubishi and it's rugged Pajero align with the Dakar legend like no other manufacturer and no other car.

Indeed, the enduring success of Mitsubishi's 4x4 icon over the last 25 years, as well as its ruggedness and honesty carried over to the next generation Pajero launched in November last year, owe much to its prowess at the Dakar Rally and the tough challenges and competition it faces there every year.

Designed and engineered to be used as a true off-road vehicle rather than a fashion accessory, Pajero respects the loyalty of over 2.5 million international customers since 1982 and capitalises on that rugged image patiently crafted at the Dakar Rally since 1983.

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.

With Pajero's global production nearing 300 months since April 1982 and the next generation already passing the 20,000 unit threshold this month, the Pajero continues to appeal to customers seeking ruggedness and reliability all round the world.
