L200 picks up the pace

Best-selling Japanese pick-up gets power boost, chassis tweaks and a racy makeover

Feast your eyes on the hottest Mitsubishi pick-up ever. This is the L200 Walkinshaw Performance – and as the name suggests, it’s a flat bed which has been tuned by legendary racer and motorsport team boss Tom Walkinshaw.

The 2.5-litre turbodiesel special edition gets a power upgrade from 134bhp to 166bhp, while styling changes include 20-inch alloys, plenty of chrome trim and a host of Walkinshaw stickers.

Inside, there are leather seats, DVD sat-nav, cruise control and an upgraded CD autochanger with Bluetooth compatibility. Prices start at £25,261 for the 2.5 DI-D Double Cab. A Walkinshaw Performance handling kit, featuring revised rear suspension, plus performance bushes and dampers, can be had for £3,049.
