Other lots from the heritage fleet included a Galant GLSi rally replica (£12,500), a Mk1 Colt Lancer 1.4 – the first Mitsubishi to be registered in the UK – (£15,000), a completely original Mk1 Shogun (£16,000) and a rare Jeep J27 (£20,600).
Two examples of the brand’s sports car range were also offloaded, with an immaculate 3000GT selling for £24,500 and a Starion for £21,100.
Perhaps the strangest lot was a 7/10-scale working replica of a 1917 Mitsubishi Model A, which sold for £13,700.
Mitsubishi Motors UK operations director Paul Brigden – formerly head of the firm’s RalliArt motor sport division and team principal during those winning BRC campaigns – said: “These vehicles represent not only a huge part of Mitsubishi’s heritage and history in the UK, they are also very special vehicles in their own right. They each have a unique story to tell and they have been cherished and cared for from the day we acquired them.
“I have overseen the development of some of these cars personally, so it is difficult to say goodbye to them, but the values they have achieved assures me that they will all go to enthusiastic new owners who understand the provenance and importance of these cars, and who will cherish and preserve them for future generations.”
