Vitesse 43431 Mitsubishi Racing Lancer Dakar 2009 S. Peterhansel/J. P. Cottret (#9 of ???)

2009 saw Mitsubishi switch to diesel power and some of Mitsubishi's worst results in a long time. Mitsubishi had won the Dakar from 2001-2007 but Volkswagen put an end to it in 2009 (the 2008 Dakar was cancelled). Peterhansel - a consistent top-5 finisher - was a DNF and Mitsubishi's best finish was Nani Roma in 10th place.

Vitesse's model is very good with lots of exterior and interior detail. There is photo-etch for the bonnet & rear hatch locks and Mitsubishi diamond-star logos. Even the mesh on the front opening appears to be photo-etch. The only issue I found was a loose rear emblem (you can see it in the 4th photo below before I noticed it and moved it to the correct position).

WSI 9840 Ginaf X2222 Dakar 2010 Press Version Martin Van den Brink/Martien Hol/Arjan Veenvliet (1:50)

This is a very nice model with lots of exterior detail, working rear suspension, poseable front and rear wheels, and tilt-up cabin to view the engine. I should have done some more research before I bought this model as it's not an actual race vehicle (I don't like models of vehicles that didn't race). So I consider this somewhat of a 'misfit' in my collection.

This is a model of the X2222 that Van den Brink Rallysport displayed when they announced their participation in the 2010 Dakar with Mammoet's sponsorship. The #511 truck entered in the 2010 Dakar was a MAN TGA 26.480 6x6, which the Ginaf X222 pictured here was (presumably) entered as the #512 truck. Also, there was a different crew for the rally - Martin Van den Brink/Martien Hol/Peter Willemsen (Peter replacing Arjan as the mechanic).

I really do like these big trucks. So unusual and eye catching. That last one is particularly good.

J-Collection Nissan Navara Pick Up Dakar 2003 A. Vatanen/T. Thörner
After a 12 year break from the Dakar, Ari Vatanen was back driving for Nissan for the first time having driven for Peugeot and Citroën the late '80s and early '90s. Navigator Tina Thörner was also with Nissan for the first time having been navigator for Jutta Kleinschmidt in Mitsubishi Pajeros in 1999 & 2000. They finished 7th overall.

Solido 9052 Mitsubishi Pajero Evo Dakar 2004 S. Peterhansel/J. P. Cottret (1:18)
In 2004 the Pajero Evolution driven by Stéphane Peterhansel won the Dakar. This was Mitsubishi's 4th consecutive Dakar victory and Peterhansel's 1st Dakar win in a car making it his 7th win overall having won it 6 times previously on a motorcycle. With this victory Peterhansel became the second person to win the Dakar on a motorcycle and in a car, the other being Hubert Auriol.

Solido 9066 Mitsubishi Pajero Evo Dakar 2005 S. Peterhansel/J. P. Cottret (1:18)
2005 marked Mitsubishi's 5th consecutive victory and Peterhansel's third Dakar win in a car making it his 8th win overall. The early rally lead was back and forth between rally legend Colin McRae and NASCAR driver Robby Gordon. McRae crashed in stage 6 and Peterhansel took over the lead in stage 7 and kept it until the end.

Skid SKM196 Mitsubishi Pajero Dakar 2001 J. P. Fontenay/G. Picard(1:43)
Based on the three-door production version of the Pajero, the Dakar Pajero had a short wheelbase and reinforced independent four-wheel suspension which gave it the agility and ground clearance needed for the rough terrain. And, even though it was limited with a top speed of 180 km/h, the Pajero was able to keep up with its competitors due to its durability putting three Pajeros in the top five. Fontenay's and Picard's Pajero was not one of them; they finished 6th.

Image Image Image

Image Image


Skid SKM99015 Mitsubishi L200 Strada Dakar 1999 C. Sousa/W. Alcaraz (1:43)
Not much 'history' other than the fact that Sousa and Alcaraz finished the 1999 Dakar in 18th place. This is one of two Dakar pickup truck models produced by Skid. J-Collection released three Navara pickup models and that's it as far as I know. So it seems that Dakar pickup truck models are a rare bird...

Thanks - glad you like the pick-ups. I really wish there were more available. I just realized I have 3rd Navara that I never photographed. I received 2 more Dakar 2010 Mitsubishi Lancers today so I will photograph that pick-up as well (hopefully later tonight). Stay tuned...

J-Collection JC046 Nissan Navara Pickup Dakar 2003 K. Al Mutawei/O. Monnet (1:43)
Khalifa Al Mutaiwei (UAE) & Philippe Monnet (FRA) were the 5th member of the Nissan Rally Raid team for the 2003 Dakar and were a DNF after leaving their vehicle stranded in the dunes with a blown engine in stage 9. This is the last Dakar pickup in my collection and there won't be any more unless someone decides to release some new ones. Norev has had one one the way for almost a year now with a second scheduled as well. Hopefully they'll be release some day.

I think I have the red sister truck #217 driven by G. de Villiers (JC043). It's the only truck in my entire collection, but it nicely compliments my collection of Nissan's rally cars, and besides, it's cool looking.
