Car maker plans to produce an SVP version of the Shogun next

The Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP is the first model to come from the brand’s new Special Vehicle Projects division.

Inspired by the one-off Mitsubishi L200 Desert Warrior, the car is limited to 250 units and gets bespoke features including 17in wheels, wheel arch extensions, a new grille and a black finish on the lights.

The car’s changes are purely cosmetic, meaning its 2.4-litre turbo diesel engine is unmodified. It produces 178bhp and 317lb ft of torque.

The car will make its public debut at the 2017 Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham. It’s on sale now priced from £37,174.80.

The L200 Barbarian SVP is the first car to come from Mitsubishi’s new Special Vehicle Projects division, which will produce special versions of existing models.

While no further models have been confirmed, the brand will likely produce a bespoke version of the Mitsubishi Shogun next. Like the Barbarian it’ll get purely aesthetic modifications.

There are no plans for the division to make mechanical modifications to cars, but a spokesman said nothing is off the table for the long-term.

Should've Gone to SpecSavers!

Still lumpy & frumpy like the regular L200.

Mitsubishi needs a design revolution.

how much???

37 grand??! A typo, surely? Mind you, with VW charging over 60 grand for a Transporter with seats in it, maybe not.

Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP

I like the L200 but this SVP version does absolutely nothing for it.the result looks like the SVP team have gone on a spending spree at Halfords and at this price it's a joke

Yep, Halfords would have been a better name than SVP

I really do wonder about Mitsubishi. It's like they live in a different decade most of the time.
