Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP revealed

Mitsubishi UK has launched its Special Vehicles Project (SVP) at the Commercial Vehicle Show, revealing the Mitsubishi L200 Barabarian SVP.

MITSUBISHI UK has launched its Special Vehicles Project at the Commercial Vehicle Show, saying it will sell SVP products in limited numbers, beginning with the L200 Barbarian SVP. Only 250 of them will be built – half in Electric Blue and the other half in Cosmos Black.

In a statement, Mitsubishi UK said: “Designed to provide Mitsubishi customers with exclusive, highly distinctive vehicles, Mitsubishi SVP models will be produced in small volumes with significant appearance changes and specific colour options”.

 Key changes include, 17-inch black alloy wheels with BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres, new wheel arch extensions, an all-new grille and an exclusive black finish on the headlight and tail-light bezels, fog lamp surrounds, roof rails and rear bumper.

Completing the Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP’s unique exterior features are shark fin-inspired side steps, load bed illumination, puddle lamps, soft-opening tailgate damper and an SVP emblem on the tailgate. 

Inside, the limited-edition model has Barbarian-inspired ‘six-pack’ leather seats with suede-like ‘Alston’ inserts. Each vehicle’s individual limited edition number and the SVP logo are also stitched into the headrests. Front and rear foot-well mood lighting together with illuminated Barbarian door entry guards add to the special feel of the interior. 

Standard features of the Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP also include rain and dusk sensors, keyless entry, satellite navigation, Bluetooth, Bi-Xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights, cruise control and reversing camera. 

Question: Should Mitsubishi Australia follow suit and launch its own Special Vehicles Project team to tweak key models, including Triton and Pajero Sport?

    Get used to this. Expensive style packs for all new utes. No engine or performance upgrades. Nice, pretty vehicles for posing city folk.
    Running lights and puddle lights? Good grief Give me a break! The death of the Aussie motoring industry means more useless Thai inspired, and controlled, packages.
