Mitsubishi has unveiled a garish special edition of its L200 pickup that will be produced by its Special Vehicle Projects (SVP) division.

Only 250 of the special edition Barbarian SVP II will be produced, and they are designed to stand out from the crowd with love-it-or-loathe-it orange details.

Most of the mechanicals are the same as the standard version, including the all-aluminium 2.4-litre turbodiesel engine and Super Select 4WD system that allows drivers to seamlessly switch between two- and four-wheel drive at speeds up to 62mph.

Gearbox options extend to a manual six-speeder or a five-speed automatic with steering-wheel paddle shifters.

On top of the L200 Barbarian Double Cab’s standard spec, the new special edition adds 17in bespoke black and orange alloy wheels with BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres, aggressive wheel arch extensions, a new SVP grille and roof rails finished in black and orange. Other additions include load bed illumination and a spring-assisted tailgate with soft-opening damper.

The interior has a similar colour scheme and standard kit includes rain and dusk sensors, keyless operation, Bluetooth, bi-xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights, cruise control and a reversing camera.

The Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP II is available to order now, with the first deliveries beginning in May, and is priced from £29,830 (ex VAT) for both grey and black versions.
