Colt CZT EVO by X-Race

Today, superminis are about as large as VW Golfs. But there used to be a time when the European market offered stuff like the Citroen C2 and Peugeot 206. You could also go fast in these little boxes -with the C2 VTS and Fiesta ST both costing less than the Clio RS.

The Japanese also took a stab at this market with the Mitsubishi Colt CZT, built between 2005 and 2008. Instead of a big 2-liter like the Fiesta had, this offered a 1.5-liter turbo engine which could also deliver 150 horsepower.

This resulted in a 0 to 100 km/h time of 8 seconds and a top speed of 130.5 mph or 210 km/h. That comparable to the Twingo RS or the base 500 Abarth.

German Mitsubishi tuners X-Race were recently asked by a customer to customize his Colt CZT, which he was very fond of. The result is a car with a quad exhaust layout and bright orange wheels and accents. We’d say the car has been transformed.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
