Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Browning” edition, offered by the Firs Garage in the UK, is a slightly tuned Outlander PHEV (no powertrain modifications).

Recently, the car was tested by Sporting Shooter editor Dom Holtam, who also writes for Performance Car magazine. Holtam hasn’t liked eco-cars beginning with the Toyota Prius, but Outlander PHEV seems to be well received.

According to Holtam, off-road driving is easy and because of the ICE backup, Outlander PHEV doesn’t compromise on performance or all-around versatility.

Quiet operation in all-electric mode could be useful while hunting too.

Eh, perhaps the lockable gun tray could be justified, but frankly the alcohol service seems a bit ill-advised.

Mixing booze and guns, what could possibly go wrong?

That was my first reaction.

I think the drinks are in the tradition of the Holland & Holland Range Rover.

Yup. An almost direct knock-off of the Holland and Holland.

The ATF being one department is not an accident…

I’ve heard of the term before, much like mudding, done by those questionable bro’s who try to concrete their image of masculinity with their rolling coal money pits.

Anyway… ‘Browning’, I can’t but help only see the worst image of that. Not the best use of words in my opinion.

In this case, “Browning” is just the name of a gun manufacturer, presumably the sponsor of this mod. It doesn’t refer to a process, or anything.

I believe the correct internet term for car mods that don’t actually tune performance is “Riced”, not tuned.

Or in this case, maybe “Welshed”?

Definitely not tuned. Somebody needs to jail-break one of these, the way this guy tuned a Volt to do a 5.5 second 0-60:
