The Mitsubishi Auto Gallery was opened in the Mitsubishi Motors Technical Center in 1989 to provide visitors with a better understanding of the numerous vehicles produced by Mitsubishi over the years and how they were developed, from the 1917 Mitsubishi Model A to present day models.
This gallery introduces you to the history of Mitsubishi automobile production and concepts that have been handed down from generation to generation. This includes displays of some of the most famous cars of all time, groundbreaking vehicles that have made their mark on history, and competitive sport vehicles that have played an important role in motorsports.
