Colonel Colt made men equal; Mitsubishi tries to make Colt-owners more equal than other men. Well, at least this is how the Japanese car manufacturer seemingly tries to make the things look like shamelessly pitching their 2007 Mitsubishi Colt Black Hawk limited edition hatches as sports cars.
However, truth be told, the new pair of black-painted Mitsubishi Colt Black Hawk warmed-up hatchbacks offers sporty looks and… not much else, being just an imitation of a sports car.
The new Mitsubishi Colt Black Hawk special edition differs from standard Colt only with its color, which is black, with a pair of silver stripes going through its bonnet, roof and rear bumper, and with a set of privacy glass fitted to the side and rear windows.
Inside, there is only a 1124 cc 3-cylinder, 12-valve, DOHC engine. Being that tiny, the engine delivers 50mpg fuel economy. Impressive but not exactly something one expects from a car with sporty pretensions. It will cost ВЈ8021 on the road.
But wait!™ There is another, more energetic member of the family. The Mitsubishi Colt Black Hawk CZT features more potent turbo-charged, 1468cc, MIVEC engine and is capable of reaching a top speed of 132 mph, accelerating from zero to 62mh in about 7.2 seconds.
The CZT comes equipped with sports seats, rear tailgate spoiler, front fog lamps, sports grille, disk brakes all round and a six-speaker CD/radio with steering wheel remote controls.
It features 17-inch special “Black Hawk” alloy wheels and ultra-low profile 205 / 40 tires.
If you have £13,026 handy, you may order one of 200 CZT already available and waiting at Mitsubishi’s dealerships in the UK.
