Toyota builds special-edition Hilux

Toyota has launched a special edition of its Toyota Hilux pick-up.

Called the Invincible 200 Double Cab, the car has a kit that boosts the performance of the 3.0-litre turbodiesel engine.

It increases power from 169bhp to 194bhp, while pulling power is increased from 253lb ft to 317lb ft, yet Toyota says there's no difference in fuel consumption or emissions compared with the standard pick-up.

There Invincible 200 also gets two-tone leather upholstery, heated front seats, a steel mesh front grille, and black metallic paint. Automatic versions also get cruise control as standard.

500 models are being built, which are available from July 1. Manual versions cost 21,540 and automatic versions 22,640.
