At first glance, the new Mitsubishi Colt CZC coupe-cabriolet reminded me alot of the Peugeot 206CC. Coupe and cabriolet all in one car. The Colt CZC coupe-cabriolet was jointly engineered by Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, Mitsubishi Design Europe and Pininfarina S.p.A.
The 2+2 seater Mitsubishi Colt CZC is built off the normal Colt hatchback platform. The bodyshell is reinforced over the normal Colt hatch and coupe because of the abscence of a structural roof.
2 differnet engine options are proposed to be offered. One is a 1.5 MIVEC turbocharged engine that delivers 150ps, allowing the car to go from 0-100km/h in 8.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 202km/h. The other is a normally aspirated 109ps 1.5 litre engine.
The Mitsubishi Colt CZC will be produced at NedCar’s plant in The Netherlands. NedCar used to be the plant that produced Mitsubishi-Volvo joint venture platform vehicles, a partnership that has since failed. NedCar also makes the smart forfour.
