More Mitsubishi special edition pick-ups to come
Following the launch of a new limited edition version of its L200 pick-up truck, Mitsubishi says it is considering more ‘one-off’ inspired versions of its popular truck.
The Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP (Special Vehicle Projects) was inspired by its one-off L200 Desert Warrier ‘Pre-runner’, a rugged-looking concept vehicle, also on display at the show.
The L200 Barbarian SVP will be limited to just 250 units, and gets flared wheel arches with 17-inch bespoke black alloy wheels and BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres, an all-new grille, new headlights, fog lamp surrounds, roof rails and rear bumper. There’s also shark fin-inspired side steps, load bed illumination, puddle lamps and a soft-opening tailgate.
On the inside are new ‘six-pack’ leather seats with suede-like ‘Alston’ inserts, while aach vehicle gets an individual limited edition number and the SVP logo stitched into the headrests.
The additional equipment, does however, come at a cost. The SVP will cost £28,479, nearly £4000 more than a Barbarian.
Speaking about the new premium price, Clive Messenger, head of corporate sales and remarketing, said: “It’s a bit of a halo product for us. I’m sure that in three years time it [L200 Barbarian SVP] will be prime used stock.”
