Lofty conversion

Is the Hilux Sport Concept the new builder's mate?

Toyota Hilux Sport Concept

So far, Toyota's Hilux has proved to be indestructible, and God knows we've tried at TG.

But now the firm has decided to make our job a little easier by producing the vehicle even faster.

The one-off Hilux Sport Concept has been built for the Commercial Vehicle Show, so it's a kind of concept car for builders and plumbers.

To help them get to their next job in a jiffy, or vanish in an instant when the mains water starts sprouting from the living room floor, Toyota has equipped the Hilux Sport Concept with a 200bhp version of the 3.0-litre turbodiesel.

Not only that, the company has also tricked it out with 22-in alloy wheels, chrome and tinted glass.

Should Toyota ever make this car a reality, the chances are that only the most extortionate builders and plumbers will be able to afford it.

Now share it...
