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.)
