Rare as hen's teeth is this unspoilt and original widebody Pajero SWB.

With basically every factory option ticked, this V6 shorty is even fitted with Pajero-branded Recaro seats.

Short-Wheelbase (SWB) 4x4s are the ones to have.

Their compact footprint makes them easier to drive and manage off-road – but you also look a million-dollars whilst wheeling one, too.

This Mitsubishi Pajero SWB is powered by a petrol V6 and is an upmarket trim level, which means a few fun things: 90s-cool two-tone paint, factory-optional Recaro bucket seats and a triple gauge pod with inclinometer.

Another bonus is low mileage – so many were used, abused and driven to the moon and back twice – but not this one.

Go on, buy it and send it off road! Or simply cruise it around town and look bloody cool whilst doing so.

The car pictured – 1998 Mitsubishi Pajero SWB ZR-S widebody (V25W)

Our Mitsubishi Pajero was built in May 1998 and is a ‘SWB ZR-S widebody’ trim level.

That means it’s powered by a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine with 170kW of power and 325Nm of torque. Aside from Mitsubishi’s super-select all-wheel drive system that allows four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive in the dry and on the road, it also features a transfer case with low-range and a centre diff lock.

As a top-spec model it also receives factory adjustable suspension with hard and soft settings, a triple gauge pod with inclinometer and temp gauge, and climate control air conditioning.

That wasn’t enough for the first owner however, who went all-out with the factory options list and added Recaro seats, a rear spoiler, and a two-tone colour option.
