Mitsubishi Motors has released the first details of its top-line turbocharged 150bhp model from the new three-door Colt CZ3 range due to go on sale early in 2005.

Compared to the five-door, the three-door has a lower roofline, more sculpted body sections, wide sills, longer doors and teardrop rear quarter windows. Its unique styling means that all exterior panels (except for the bonnet and front bumper) have been individually designed and not carried over from the five-door.

The Colt CZ3 range will be available with either a five speed manual gearbox or ‘Allshift’ automated manual transmission coupled with a choice of five engines: 1.1 litre 75bhp, 1.3 litre 95bhp, 1.5 litre 109bhp petrol engine, 1.5 95bhp direct injection diesel and a range-topping turbo DOHC 16 valve intercooled 1.5 litre engine, developing 150bhp and 210Nm of torque with a 0-62 time of 8 seconds and a top speed of 130mph.

The turbocharged Colt CZT was developed at the specific request of Mitsubishi Motors Europe and styled at Mitsubishi Design Europe. It makes its world debut at this year’s Paris motor show in September.
