ORANGE is the new black, according to an American comedy show - but you can have both in a stylish new special edition truck from Mitsubishi.

Only 250 examples of the L200 Barbarian SVP II are to be built for British customers, half of them finished in pearlescent black with orange highlighting both inside and out.

The limited edition model is the second vehicle to be produced by Mitsubishi UK's SVP (Special Vehicle Projects) division and is designed to build on the success of the original limited edition SVP version of the Barbarian.

On top of the standard spec of the L200 Barbarian Double Cab pick-up, the new special edition comes with bespoke 17-inch black and orange alloy wheels shod with BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres and covered by aggressive wheel arch extensions. There's a new SVP grille and roof rails, both of which are also finished in black and orange.

The fog lamp rings, front and rear light bezels, door handle recess covers, puddle lamps and tailgate handle surround are all picked out in orange. SVP tailgate badging, a colour-coded bumper and shark fin-inspired black side steps complete the distinctive look. For added convenience buyers will benefit from load bed illumination and a spring-assisted tailgate with soft-opening damper.

The special colour scheme is carried over into the interior, with orange accents on the leather seats which have the vehicle's individual limited edition number, plus the SVP logo, stitched into the headrests. There's even orange mood lighting.

Power is provided by an all-aluminium 2.4-litre turbodiesel engine and there's a choice of either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.

Prices start at £29,830 excluding VAT and first deliveries are expected in May - and if you don't reckon that orange is the new black, then you can choose one in metallic grey⦠with orange trim.
