The Mitsubishi Pajero/Montero Evolution MPR10 was developed for the 2003 Dakar Rally, a completely new machine based on a concept vehicle shown at the 2001 Frankfurt Motor Show. The MPR10 is built on a rigid, lightweight tubular spaceframe structure, with a 6G74 MIVEC 3.5-litre V6 engine and, for the first time in Mitsubishi's Dakar history, a 6-speed sequential gearbox. It boasts excellent aerodynamics, thanks to a high minimum ground clearance and low overall height, making it lower than a conventional car and reducing the frontal area.

The Mitsubishi Motors Team fielded four of these cars in the 2003 Dakar Rally, as driven by defending champion Hiroshi Masuoka, Jean-Pierre Fontenay, six-time Dakar motorcycle winner Stéphane Peterhansel, and two-time World Rally Champion Massimo "Miki" Biasion. The Mitsubishis of Masuoka and Peterhansel quickly took the overall lead in the rally, swapping positions until suspension damage for Peterhansel on the second-to-last day of the event allowed for Masuoka to claim his second consecutive Dakar Rally victory. Fontenay and Peterhansel would finish second and third, two hours adrift of their Japanese teammate.[1]
