Mitsubishi currently does not sell a pickup truck or a body-on-frame SUV in the US, though that could potentially change in the near future. For now, America has Mitsubishi crossovers like the and new . In the UK, however, you can buy the L200 truck, which isn’t overly impressive, but this one-off version is. Not surprisingly, it was custom-built specifically for Fast & Furious Live. Mitsubishi has announced it has teamed up with Fast Live Productions and racing driver Shane Lynch to create this hardcore off-road L200.
The L200 SVP II has been heavily reworked, with add-ons such as 15x15 rear wheels, extended suspension travel, external roll cage that also wraps around the wheel arches, front bumpers, and custom-fabricated, laser-cut metalwork. It’s painted in a two-tone grey with black and orange trim. Under the hood is a bespoke engine: an upgraded 2.4-liter turbo diesel. The custom-side exhaust and manifold, larger front-mounted intercooler, turbocharger, and ECU remap all combine for added output which, oddly, was not mentioned in the press release. Step inside and there’s a totally stripped-out interior, aside from a couple of carbon fiber bucket seats and four-point racing harness.
The L200 SVP II is actually one of three Mitsubishis making an appearance in Fast & Furious Live in the UK. A Lancer EVO is one of the other two. “The truck sits perfectly alongside the incredible vehicles that have captivated viewers of the Fast & Furious franchise and is one for audiences to look out for in our adrenaline-packed production, said James Cooke-Priest, CEO, Fast Live Productions. "We’re very grateful for the support of Mitsubishi in the arena and behind the scenes.”
