Mitsubishi goes Barbarian


Mitsubishi has added a new special edition Barbarian SVP II to its L200 line-up– the second vehicle to be produced by its SVP (Special Vehicle Projects) division.

The Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP II is recognisable by a striking two-tone colour scheme of orange highlights against a base coat of eitherpearlescent Diamond Black or metallic Atlantic Grey.

On top of the standard specification of the L200 Barbarian Double Cab, the new special edition adds 17-inch black and orange alloy wheels with all-terrain tyres, wheel arch extensions, a new SVP grille and roof rails, both of which are also finished in black and orange.

The fog lamp rings, front and rear light bezels, door handle recess covers, puddle lamps and tailgate handle surround are all picked out in orange. Tailgate badging, a colour-coded bumper and shark fin-inspired black side steps complete the look, while for convenience there are load bed illumination and a spring-assisted tailgate with soft-opening damper.

The orange-highlighted colour scheme is carried over into the interior, with the leather seats featuring orange accented panelling, stitching and piping. Each individual limited edition number, plus the SVP logo, is stitched into the headrests and there’s also a floor mates with orange piping. The distinctive theme continues with orange illuminated door entry guards and front and rear foot-well mood lighting.

Standard equipment 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 the familiar 2.4-litre turbodiesel engine, combined with a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel paddle shifters and driven through all four wheels.

The Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP II is available to order now. Only 250 will be built, with the first deliveries commencing in May, and is priced from £29,830 (excluding VAT) for both grey and black versions.
