To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the launch of the Colt Ralliart Version-R, Mitsubishi has offered up a new special edition of the JDM-only (Correction: Australia, too. Why are we not surprised?) pocket rocket. The Colt Ralliart Version-R Recaro Edition includes a set of Recaro buckets as standard equipment (how'd you guess?), and sports a few extra details as well. Version-R logos adorn the doorsill scuff plates, and prominent decals on the rear doors also come standard. The 5-speed's shift knob is the same one found in the Lancer Evolution IX, and a choice of four colors is available, including the new Aqua Blue (they all have black interiors). Its hopped up 1.5L turbo-four makes 154 horsepower. Pricing in Japan for the Recaro edition is set at ¥2,079,000 (That's a smidge over $17K USD for the exchange-rate-obsessed.)

      6. What an .......deathtrap.

      You gotta data to back that up Bryan?

      The "Dodge Colt" had been around since the late sixties. (or at least in Canada) Chrysler had nothing better to replace it since.

      Call it the Colt 45 and I am down.. It seriously seems like the longer the name of the japanese car the better performance you can expect..

      the people at mitsubishi need to reconsider thier international product portfolio,.for example the new outlander, was available in japan from the end of 2005, if it was brought to the us at the same time, it wouldve beaten the cr-v to market and woudve seemed better, as it would have been an earlier model with all those gimmicks. the success that is the yaris/fit is a poor loss on mitsubishi, whose critically acclaimed cold, and pinninfarina sourced cabrio are really good cars, and there sales somewhat reflect this. as ive said many times before,..going mainstream was a big thumbs down for mitsubishi, and this non-mainstream product shows why. they are much better as a stand alone , sporty, fast, turbo induced , 4wd automaker....and they need to re-intoduce themselves to the world
