Mitsubishi is offering just 100 examples of the Pajero Legend 100 in South Africa. See specification and pricing details below.
With its roots in the gruelling Dakar Rally, where the Pajero racked up multiple wins, 12 in fact, from 1985 to 2007, this is no doubt an impressive achievement that the Minato-based firm is very proud of. Sadly though, production of the Pajero has come to an end and the model will soon be no more.
However, Mitsubishi is inviting 100 lucky buyers to join the ‘Legend 100 Club’ by purchasing a limited edition Pajero Legend 100 which features an obligatory “Legend 100” badge and owners will receive a certificate of membership to the club.
“We are down to the last 100 units and celebrating it with the Pajero ‘Legend 100’ Club, which will find new lucky homes in 2021, proving the popularity of the car that built up an unequalled Dakar record which still stands today,” says Nic Campbell, General Manager of Mitsubishi Motors South Africa.
Both the SWB (3-door) and LWB (5-door) Pajero will receive “Legend 100” certification. Engine power comes courtesy of a 3.2-litre turbodiesel engine with 140 kW and 441 Nm. Mitsubishi’s Super Select II-4WD system ensures notable offroad capability and provides 4 driving modes including 2WD High Range, 4WD, 4WD High and Low Range with a locked centre differential.
The Pajero Legend 100 is also equipped with 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist, active stability control with traction control as well as a rear view camera and rear park distance control for added reassurance.
Note that the Pajero Sport 2.4DI-D 4x4 Exceed tops the Pajero Sport range and will still be offered with 133 kW and 430 Nm.
