Inspired by the off-roaders that pre-run stages of desert races, the Mitsubishi L200 Desert Warrior takes a production truck and turns it into a capable runner. It was built in conjunction with Top Gear magazine and engineer Ralph Hosier of RH Engineering and based on a standard L200 long-term test vehicle. In the process, it gained Cobra racing seats on the interior, as well as an exterior roll cage, oversized wheels with self-inflating tires, long-range LED lights, and a heavily modified suspension. The resulting vehicle will be used in a unique challenge to be featured in both the magazine and online.
