Come September 16, the Mitsubishi Motors brand will add famed former Formula One driver Nigel Mansell to its list of franchise owners. Mansell will add the automaker’s products to his family-run dealership in the United Kingdom, The Mansell Collection.

Recently opened in 2013, Mansell is ready to take his dealership to the next level by adding Mitsubishi’s models to the lineup.

“Our dealership has gone from strength to strength and the time is right to get a franchise on board. We wanted a brand that crossed a lot of boundaries of motoring and with Mitsubishi there’s something for everyone,” Mansell said.

“The most exciting thing for me is how great the Mitsubishi product is.”

Mansell’s dealership also offers customers a unique experience through “The Nigel Mansell Story” museum, which allows them to explore Mansell’s trophies and winning cars.

Mansell’s son, Leo, who manages the new dealership, said, “Mitsubishi is a perfect fit for us. The range of vehicles excites me and this is a great opportunity. Having the museum at the dealership is a real asset and it’s been a far bigger success than we imagined.”

We at Randall Mitsubishi are excited to have the racing legend join the Mitsubishi family. After all, the Mansell family knows what it takes to make a winning team.
