Mitsubishi 1980-2006

Mitsubishi sold so many Sigmas during the early 1980s that it almost wrestled market leadership from Ford and Holden. But where are they all now?

Most of the Sigma 2.6s that appear are in ordinary condition and sell at $2500-3500. Collectors are keen to find any surviving Turbos with 2.0-litre engines and to those can be added 2.6-litre Wherrett Specials and GSRs.

| Best Aussie buys: 2002 Mitsubishi Ralliart Magna

Early Magnas generally cost less than $3000 and at that value aren’t being preserved. An Elite with its interior intact at up to $5000 would offer some chance of appreciation.

Later All-Wheel Drive and Ralliart versions are still available in decent numbers, with AWDs in good condition mostly below $5000. Finding a Ralliart isn’t easy but as yet they aren’t expensive.
