Mitsubishi UK gives L200 (Triton) a Barbarian makeover


A day after Mitsubishi Australia unveiled the limited edition Triton Blackline, the Japanese automaker's British division has launched a more extreme version dubbed the Barbarian SVP II.

Based on the flagship Barbarian trim level and the result of Mitsubishi's Special Vehicle Projects (SVP) divisions, the newest Triton, known as the L200 in the UK, will be limited to 250 units only with a choice of two colours; pearlescent Diamond Black and metallic Atlantic Grey.

Setting itself apart from lesser models though, unique aesthetic gains consists of an orange finish around the fog lights, front and rear light bezels, tailgate handle, puddle lamps, door handle recess and at the base of the SVP black specific grille, 17-inch black and orange alloy wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich all-terrain rubber, bespoke wheel arch extensions, black and orange roof rails, black side steps and SVP badging on the tailgate.

Inside, the SVP touches are made up of so-called six-pack leather seats with suede-like Alston inserts and orange accents as well as stitching, orange illuminated door sills, black floor mats with orange piping, SVP embroidered headrest and orange foot-well mood lighting.

Like the Blackline, South African marketed Xtreme and the Athlete shown in Bangkok last year, the L200 Barbarian SVP II's engine remains unchanged with the sole option being the 2.4-litre DI-D turbodiesel that produces 133 kW and 430 Nm of torque, linked to either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic gearbox.

Now on sale, delivers are expected to commence in May with pricing from £29 830 (R502 152). Don't, however, expect it to arrive on local shores anytime soon.
