  • 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero Final Edition

    Mitsubishi no longer sells the rugged Montero in the United States but the vehicle lives on overseas, where it is known as the Pajero (or Shogun if you're in the United Kingdom). The Pajero is currently in its fourth generation and has been given a mild update that includes a Final Edition model. No, the Pajero isn't about to be culled just yet, although it is ending sales in its home market of Japan, where the Final Edition model is being offered. It features a 7.0-inch display, leather trim, roof racks, and a few other items. Just 700 examples are planned. Just one powertrain is available...

  • Dytko Sport Mitsubishi Lancer Edition R

    We've lived in a world without the famed Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution for almost four years now, but one Polish company decided to build the Evo XI Mitsubishi won't. Dytko Sport, responsible for building and selling parts and components for Lancer Evo rally cars, worked with subsidiary Proto Cars to create what it calls the Lancer Edition R. It's a body kit that can be added to the Mitsubishi Evo X. Effectively, it picks up where the Evo X left off, and we have to commend the company because this truly does look like a natural progression from the final-generation car. The front clip takes...

  • 1991 Mitsubishi Galant tuned by AMG

    AMG is well-known as the in-house tuner for Mercedes-Benz. However, it wasn't always that way. Until 1999 AMG used to do its tuning work for any automaker willing to pay. We bet you didn't know that once upon a time the Japanese automaker Mitsubishi was willing to pay for some German tuning. Thus the world got this incredibly obscure 1991 Mitsubishi Galant tuned by AMG. According to the video above from Pacific Coast Auto, about 500 of the AMG-tuned Galants were built. So, what did AMG do to make the car so special? Many of the upgrades reside under the hood. Foremost, AMG retuned the stock...

  • Teaser for Mitsubishi e-Evolution concept debuting at 2017 Tokyo Motor Show

Now, just a month out from the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, Mitsubishi has dropped the first image of what it’s calling the e-Evolution concept. All Mitsubishi is willing to say is that the concept features a coupe-like SUV body, a sophisticated all-wheel-drive...

  • This is the world's fastest Mitsubishi Evo
    This 1,700-hp Mitsubishi Evo is the quickest in the world
