Updated Mitsubishi L200 will take part in races. Pickup will perform in the Australian ECB SuperUtes series of the 2019 season, where the revised versions of production models compete. Team Triton Racing will be sponsored by the Australian Mitsubishi Motors office.

The SuperUte version is based on the Mitsubishi L200 serial version. The pickup is equipped with a modernized 2.4 diesel engine with enhanced camshafts, an increased fuel rail and injectors, a GTurbo turbocharger, an intercooler, and a Motec engine control unit. In addition, the car is equipped with Torqit sports exhaust and a Tremac 6060 six-speed transmission with an H-shaped switching circuit.

The Mitsubishi L200 SuperUte engine produces 344 horsepower and 677 Nm of torque. From place to “hundreds” pickup accelerates in 3.5 seconds. The maximum speed exceeds 240 kilometers per hour.

The front suspension of the “super-pickup” has been updated by installing the SupaShock struts and springs, the rear one is completely new. Instead of the standard differential and springs, there is installed a racing self-block and horizontal shock absorbers. The Mitsubishi L200 SuperUte also includes 20-inch alloy wheels, a Brembo braking system, a safety cage certified by the Australian Motorsport Confederation, and other driver protections.
