Triton concept, a high-performance utility from Team Mitsubishi Ralliart, is making its torque heard at the Australian International Motor Show.

The Mitsubishi Triton is getting a boost from Down Under. Team Mitsubishi Ralliart or TMR unveils a Triton packed not only with mutton on the loadbox, but plenty of horses up front as well at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. The concept car, which essentially will look the way we see it here, is a study into the ever-increasing need to marry utility with power and drivability. Using its usual 3.2-litre turbo diesel mill, TMR has prepared this Triton to force out 132kW (177hp) at some 3800rpm. Torque has gone up to 450Nm (332 ft-lb) from a relatively low 2000rpm.

Suspension has been uprated in order to cope with the extra power, brakes get stronger (Ferodo pads fitted), ABS and EBD are standard. It goes fast and stops fast, that’s the message. Those Pirelli Scorpion ATR 255/55R18 tyres on Dakar allow wheels also prove a point as far as the fast farmer is concerned. Interior is improved as well, with leather seats braided with TMR logos, a USB input, integrated Bluetooth and hands-free iPod control. Looks the part, seems to deliver too. Hope they build it for the public.
