When accomplished off-road racer İsmail Ayhan wanted a new race truck to compete in, he turned to Levent Köremezli, Görkem Coşgun, Erdal Akar, and Ekin Köremezli in Ankara, Turkey.
The talented team began with a factory Mitsubishi L200 (Triton) truck. They sold the bed shortly after purchase and shortened the cab 50 cm (19.6 inches). They reinforced the chassis and rear end and then installed a custom four-link rear suspension with Profender coilovers front and back.
The team replaced the factory engine with a turbocharged 2.6 L RB26DET inline-six. They estimate it’s making 400+ horsepower on 1.4 bar (20.3 psi) of boost from a Garrett GTX3076R turbocharger. The turbocharger orientation is backwards, pulling air from inside the cabin. This keeps water from entering the turbo while crossing water passages on race courses.
The drivetrain remains mostly stock. The transmission is a L200 (Triton) 4×4 manual connected to a modified L200 rear end with a locking differential and 4.10 gears.
Since the truck competes in tough conditions, the metal body panels had to go. The team replaced the front and rear fenders with custom fiberglass panels. They even made a fiberglass hood with RS500 Cosworth vents.
