Driving Experiences with Mitsubishi
Do you want to drive one of the world's most popular performance cars? Mitsubishi's motors may be just what you're searching for. This Japanese automaker has produced some of the most powerful vehicles in our fleet, which you can drive at locations around the UK.
Get into the thrilling EVO X on a rally stage or the turbo power of an Eclipse on one of our many Supercar and Movie Car sets.
Mitsubishi EVO X
The Mitsubishi EVO X (or Evolution X, to give it its full name) has always been a common vehicle for rally car racing, and is extremely popular in the motorsports and tuning world, like many Japanese icons. If you or someone you know aspires to be the next Colin McRae, our Rally driving day bundles in an EVO X might be just what you're looking for.
With a 4 Turbo engine producing an incredible 403 bhp and top speeds of over 155 mph - the EVO X is a vehicle to remember.
Fans of the long-running Fast and Furious films will recognise the Eclipse as one of the whips of choice for Brian O'Conner, played by the late great Paul Walker, one of the most influential silver screen motorsports enthusiasts. Indeed Paul Walker is credited with turning an entire generation onto the Japanese Domestic Market tuner cars - Toyota Supra MK4; Nissan Skyline R34; and yes the Mitsubishi Eclipse. The team at driving experience love the aggression of these Japanese legends.
Our Fast and Furious Blast (3 mile) and Thrill (6 mile) packages include time behind the wheel in the Eclipse, as well as up to five other prominent cars from the film, such as the Nissan R34 Skyline, Chevrolet Camaro SS, and Toyota Supra MK4, to name a few.
Mitsubishi's Performance History
The Mitsubishi Evo isn't a car; it's a weapon - with origins that go back far before the nameplate's inception. Racing has become a focus for Mitsubishi on many occasions in its almost never-ending attempt to stand out from the rest. The company's 500 Super Deluxe, which was designed for rallying with its "tall" 594-cc, 25-hp, air-cooled, two-cylinder engine, was aiming for rally glory as early as 1961.
Mitsubishi created the Lancer 1600GSR in the early 1970s, which won the difficult East African Safari Rally in 1974. In 1985, a Mitsubishi Pajero SUV (marketed in the United States as the Montero) dominated the Paris-Dakar Rally.
The firm had made it known that high technology and ruggedness were key selling points for its cars all around the planet. Short of Formula 1, no driving series was more technologically advanced than world rallying.
The Galant VR-4 was Mitsubishi's first effort to create a viable World Rally Championship entry, and it was built according to Group A regulations. It is a slight oversimplification - but the earliest Lancer Evolution (later commonly the EVO) was essentially born here - by placing the soul of the Galant VR-4 inside the smaller Lancer shell.
