Will you convert your Toyota Hilux Revo Z into a Black Mamba body kit version?

May 06, 2019 | Same topic: Newest & coolest car concepts
The special Toyota Hilux Revo Z Black Mamba body kit version is designed for asphalt driving.

Many are caught up by the excitement generated by the exhibition of pickups in local and international car shows. Many of the pickups are updates of current models that use carbon body kits and total or minor updated hardware that are performance off-road parts.

One particular conversion that stands out is the Toyota Hilux Revo Z that is further converted with the Black Mamba body kit version that totally follows are a different approach. One reason that the Black Mamba is very distinctive from the others, the conversion kit is for asphalt driving.

The Raptor, Conquest, N-Warrior, and the High-Country Storm are all for off-roading, but the Black Mamba is for the faster performance aspect. Yes, this is totally opposed to the others which is why it catches attention. Noting the fact that mid-sized trucks with 2.8-liter turbo intercoolers are quite powerful brutes.

When the clearance is converted to car-like ground clearance, lowered center of gravity improves road grip! Adding a rear wheel drivetrain position the power behind the pickup truck that is like a sports car.

1. Toyota Hilux Revo Z Black Mama Edition: The look

This conversion is part of a collaboration with PSP shop which customized the truck from top to bottom. If you’re into a racing truck, then drag racing will be identified as the main inspiration. Visualizing the changes was a truly original design enterprise to make it a different animal from other off-road inspirations.

One can spot the use of carbon fiber panels to alter the Hilux’s generic shape. Specific changes that made the silhouette look different before the modding was done. To be more specific with the carbon body kits that added a vented hood, a different tailgate, and finally spoiler specially designed for the Black mamba upgrade components.

Achieving the low slung racing pickup look is not enough without the splitter panel with added carbon fiber side mirrors. Just lowering the truck is not enough to truly optimize the low drag profile, because the Mamba needs something else.

2. Toyota Hilux Revo Z Black Mama Edition: Safety Features

Final touches to get it included using specially modified suspension to give it softer ride. Turbos installed are upgraded, but exact technical specs aren’t available as of now. Last but not least is a full set of Cosmic Racing rims and adding low profile sticky tires.

Since the Black Mamba is made for speed, there are some changes to lower the weight of the truck. Less weight will give more speed and losing a few pounds makes a big difference. Original seats have been changed with carbon racing seats and PSP brand titanium shift knob.

For extra safety, there is a 5-point safety harness used inside the passenger compartment. Removing the original truck bed liner to further save more weight and look like vintage pickup truck beds. If the Black Mamba mod is done, another change is ECU remapping for more power added.

3. Toyota Hilux Revo Z Black Mama Edition: Engine & Performance

The overall engine specs are 150 PS at 3,400 rpm and 343 Nm at 1,400-2,800 rpm for torque offered. Under the hood is a 2GD-FTV four-cylinder 16-valve DOHC turbocharged engine that provides the substance, not just racing looks.

It seems that the Black Mamba is similar to lower pickups that ran drag races years ago, with the same low-slung profile. Feeling the speed is not enough without the racing steering wheel specially meant for it. Some may go for it and some may not through a racing pickup style be interesting.
