Only 250 of the exclusive pickup are to be produced and the striking L200 will be available to purchase at Grenson Mitsubishi, located on Marshfield Bank Employment Park, Middlewich Rd, Crewe from May 1st.
The distinctive pickup combines a highly individual, purposeful look and high specification with a spacious interior, payload of up to 1,050kgs (automatic version), and the ability to tow up to 3,500kgs (maximum towing capacity can only be explored with a three-axle braked trailer)*.
The Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP II is the second vehicle to be produced by Mitsubishi Motors in the UK’s SVP (Special Vehicle Projects) division and, like the original L200 SVP, is instantly recognisable with a distinctive two-tone colour scheme and styling enhancements to the exterior and interior.
Half of the limited production run will be finished in pearlescent Diamond Black with the other half finished in metallic Atlantic Grey. Details on either are picked out in orange, creating a striking contrast.
On top of the generous standard specification of the Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian Double Cab, the SVP II adds such external features as 17-inch bespoke black and orange alloy wheels with BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres, wheel arch extensions, a new SVP grille and roof rails.
Inside, notable extras include Barbarian-inspired ‘six-pack’ leather seats with suede-like ‘Alston’ inserts that have orange accented panelling, stitching and piping, a unique ‘SVP’ embossed mat set with orange piping, orange illuminated door entry guards and front and rear foot-well mood lighting. Each SVP II’s individual limited edition number, plus the SVP logo, is stitched into the headrests.
Sean Pattinson, at Grenson Mitsubishi, said: “We’re really excited to be able to offer customers the new L200 SVP II and it’s ideal for anyone who wants to stand out this summer, but still needs the practicality and go-anywhere ability of an all-wheel drive pickup. With the limited production run, it’s actually more exclusive than many sports cars too!
“Interested customers need to contact us as soon as possible though, as we expect our L200 SVP II allocation to sell out very quickly.”
Standard equipment of the Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP II includes the Mitsubishi Smartphone Link Display Audio (SDA) system, which allows users to connect to apps or other features of their Apple or Android smartphone through the touchscreen or via voice control**; rain and dusk sensors, keyless operation, Bluetooth, Bi-Xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights, cruise control and reversing camera.
Power is provided by an all-aluminium 2.4-litre turbodiesel engine, while the rotary-dial controlled Super Select 4WD system, which allows drivers to seamlessly switch between two- and four-wheel drive at speeds of up to 62 mph on all surfaces, can be combined with a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel paddle shifters.
The Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP II is priced from £30,135 (CV OTR) for both grey and black versions.
