The Vauxhall Maloo pick-up truck has been updated, with the new model gaining a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine.
Its uprated engine means total power is now rated at 529bhp - a significant boost from the 425bhp of the old Maloo. The same engine is already found in the VXR8 GTS saloon, and is also used in tuned form in the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
As well as its upgraded powertrain, which features a new cooling package and a high-flow exhaust system, the car’s springs and dampers have been stiffened, and a new rear suspension module has been fitted to improve braking efficiency.
Vauxhall says the new LSA Maloo is the fastest commercial vehicle on sale in the UK; it can reach 62mph in 4.6 seconds. It can also haul up to 540kgs in weight.
The previous Maloo was capable of hitting 62mph in 5.3 seconds, as well as covering a standing quarter mile in 13.7 seconds.
New standard equipment includes launch control on manual models, a limited-slip differential, satellite navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, an upgraded driver interface and leather trim. Chunky 20in alloy wheels are standard, and the pick-up has a redesigned front end with a splitter and new bonnet air vents.
The LSA Maloo is available now, with prices starting from £54,000 - a £3000 premium over the old model.
