Mitsubishi create Colt TWR Walkinshaw Edition

Mitsubishi Colt TWR fq

Like many manufacturers Mitsubishi is pulling out of its motorsports campaigns, but this doesn’t mean the automaker is going to limit the development and sales of its performance models. The Lancer Evolution X FQ400 is due for release later this year and in addition to the Colt Ralliart Version R, Mitsubishi is planning another special version of the hot hatch.

The Colt Ralliart TWR Walkinshaw edition, which gets its name from touring car legend Tom Walkinshaw, will come equipped with a new suspension, lowered ride height and more aggressive body kit. The 147 hp, 1.5-litre engine will carry over, along with the close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox. Time will tell if the special Colt is going to come to NZ.
