It is in fact a special-edition Mitsubishi L200 pick-up
7 August 2007

Mention the words 'Raging Bull' and we'd assume you were either talking about a souped-up Lamborghini or a film by Martin Scorsese.But apparently this new Mitsubishi L200 'Raging Bull' pick-up is so called because that's the name of England Rugby captain Phil Vickery's clothing company.The L200 Raging Bull therefore comes with bull logos on the outside and stitched into the seats, but there's not a rugby ball in sight.It only comes in one colour – a bull-taunting bright red – and with a 2.5-litre diesel engine. There's apparently £4000 of kit added to the car, but it costs £2000 more than a standard Warrior-spec L200. That means you get sat-nav and leather seats on the inside, and enough chrome to satisfy the gaudiest of tastes on the outside."The L200 is powerful, tough and rugged, yet great to look at," said Vickery. "The synergy between the L200, rugby and Raging Bull’s performance clothing makes great sense."We just hope he stops thinking about pick-ups and starts thinking about putting the ball down behind the opposition's try line in time for this autumn's Rugby World Cup.

Our Verdict

Mitsubishi L200 2006-2015

The Mitsubishi L200 pick-up offers plenty of creature comforts in high-spec models. But at its heart, it’s still a workhorse

    The handsome Jaguar XF Sportbrake exhibits all the hallmarks that makes the saloon great, and with the silky smooth diesel V6 makes it a compelling choice

    Volkswagen's new compact crossover has the looks, the engineering and the build quality to be a resounding success, but not with this diesel engine

    The all-paw M550i is a fast, effortless mile-muncher, but there's a reason why it won't be sold in the UK

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
