Cirencester, England - Mitsubishi’s UK division has created an extreme L200 (aka Triton) bakkie for the Fast & Furious Live arena tour.
Created in partnership with Boyzone singer Shane Lynch (who also happens to be a racing driver), the Triton has been pimped both visually and beneath the bonnet.
The imposing bakkie rides on bright orange modular steel wheels (measuring 15 x 15 inches at the back) and its body shell is encased by an external roll cage that also wraps around the wheel arches and front bumpers.
Performance mods to Mitsubishi’s 2.4-litre turbodiesel engine come in the form of a remapped ECU, larger intercooler, hybrid Garrett turbocharger, custom side-exit exhaust and manifold and 3D printed air intake. Mitsubishi won’t say how powerful it is, although given those mods it surely produces quite a lot more than the standard vehicle’s 133kW.
The cabin has been pared down to the bare essentials, and is kitted out with Corbeau carbon fibre racing buckets, featuring four-point harnesses.
Shane Lynch said of the project:
“It’s been amazing to team up with two brands that really appreciate vehicles that are built to perform and also have the imagination to create a truck that’s completely unique. We’ve gone all-out on the build and the result is something which not only looks the part but has the power to match, and starting with the Mitsubishi L200 gave us a tremendous base to work with.”
