Is it still possible to buy the discontinued Toyota Hilux new?

I would like to buy an 4WD pick-up, a single or extra-cab, not a double cab. All the current offerings are too big, both in length and particularly in width. A friend has a 2003 Hilux, which would be ideal, but the current model seems much bigger. Is it possible to buy a new N60 in UK spec anywhere? I think that is the correct model - it is the previous model to the current offering.

The previous HiLux N60 'Tiger' model went out of production when the HiLux Vigo came in. The smallest current Jap/Thai pickup is the Mitsubishi L200 with standard length loadbed. It's the black one in this road test: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/mitsubishi/mitsubi.../
