While most Japanese automakers battled it out on Suzuka and Fuji, Mitsubishi took a different tack. From 1970s Lancers on the Safari Rally to the WRC Evos of the 90s to the Pajeros reigning supreme over Dakar, Mitsubishi has always loved to get dirty in the dirt. For a brief moment in the 80s, though, they could be found swarming the tarmac thanks to the wedge-tastic Starion. Australia is where they flourished, and so once again we turn to the excellent video series by Shannons Insurance to explain why you should seriously be looking to add a Starion to your garage.
As a result of its racing provenance, the Starion has a strong following in Australia. The second act profiles a couple who are the original owners of a turbocharged, intercooled 1987 model. Curiously, the flaresided versions never made it to Oz, which got only the flat-siders, but the example is gorgeous nonetheless. Watch the video below and gain even more appreciation for an already impressive machine.
