Join a Colt

By Eric James

The Colt Cleartec is the newest model in a line of Mitsubishi cars which have been both fashionable and low cost for everyone since 1962.

Gigantic tombstone fuel-guzzling motors are fine and dandy for anybody who is the prince of some obscure wealthy nation and can afford to tarmac an area the size of Coventry for your turning circle. However for decades the standard family living in a thriving suburb has been saving money while getting the highest quality possible by driving the newest model of Colt.

As Mitsubishi's very first post-war passenger car, the Colt 600 made history when it was first produced in Okazaki, Japan in 1962. It was not long before the successful sleek and stylish car arrived on the shores of Europe, with the Colt 1200 and Colt 1400 amazing the general public in the early 1980s. Shortly everybody was queuing to be the first to take a Colt test drive.

By the mid eighties the world had joined the cult of the Colt, with both 3-door and 5-door versions developed, with a top engine capacity of 1800cc. The designs sold well in Europe, but they were especially popular in Denmark, where they were one of the country's best selling cars.

Several styles of Colt have gone under diverse labels around the world, such as the Dodge, Plymouth and the perfectly crazy Mirage Panther and Mirage Cyborg. Neither the Panther or Cyborg were built to be driven by any types of wild cat or futuristic automaton, though arguably a futuristic robot might possibly drive one, though we can never know, because that will only transpire in the future.

In the 1990s vehicles stopped having those well-defined angles and the edges became rounder in practically a real life precursor to web 2.0. The Colt remained in fashion and the fifth generation showcased a front wheel drive 1500 cc 8 valve SOHC caburettor engine in the base GL model, or a 1800 cc SOHC 8 valve EFI engine in the larger GLXi variant.

These days the Colt Cleartec contains the most advanced features ever before seen in a Colt brochure and is still manufactured to the best standards on the production lines of Japan. Another classic in the making.
