Mitsubishi Motors has released the first picture of its top of the range 150bhp Colt from the all-new 3-door Colt CZ3 range. Due to go on sale early 2005 the Colt CZ3 range will include the Colt CZT turbo charged variant.
Shorter than the 5-door model, with a lower roofline, more sculpted body sections, wide sills, longer doors and teardrop rear quarter windows, Colt CZ3 represents the New Colt´s One-Motion design theme.
The Colt CZ3 range will be available early 2005 with either a 5 speed manual gearbox or the Allshift automated manual transmission coupled with a choice of four engines: 1.1 litre 75bhp, 1.3 litre 95bhp, 1.5 litre 109bhp petrol engine and 1.5 95bhp direct injection diesel.
At the same time, the new 3-door Colt will be available in the "Colt CZT" variant, exclusively offered with a turbo-charged version of Mitsubishi Motors´ MIVEC Turbo DOHC 16 valve intercooled 1.5 litre engine, developing 150bhp, with a 0-62 time of 8 seconds and a top speed of 130mph. The Colt CZT will make its world premier at the Paris Motor Show in September.
