Mitsubishi Colt GTi

Description

Mitsubishi reintroduced the Colt nameplate as a front-wheel drive hatchback in 1978, with a sedan later released in 1982. Sold in Japan as the Mirage, the Colt name was restricted to markets such as Europe and Australia (where the Colt was built by Mitsubishi Motors Australia from 1982 to late 1989).

The third-generation Mirage was launched in 1987. Masaru Furukawa headed the vehicle design, with Yasukichi Akamatsu given the role of chief engineer. The basic model, a three-door hatchback with upright tailgate and large glasshouse arrived first. The performance version Mitsubishi Colt GTi was fitted with a naturally aspirated 1836 cm3 engine producing 136 hp (100 kw). The car accelerated from 0-100 km/h in  7,9 seconds and could reach a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph).
