Drop-top V8 will do 0-62mph in three seconds flat. Hold onto your trilby
You are here
This is a 195mph Mitsubishi Colt
Yep, this Colt has a huge turbocharger strapped to its 2.0-litre 16V 4G63 engine, and after a lot of careful mapping work by Boba Motorsport, now produces nearly 1000 horsepowers.
You want numbers? Hold on tight: 0-62mph takes 3.0 seconds. 62-124mph takes 3.7 seconds, 124-186mph takes 9.8 seconds, and it’ll run onto a top speed of 195.7mph. Which, plainly, is ridiculous. And faster than a Ferrari 458.
Four-wheel drive gives the Colt at least a fighting change of staying on the road, but as you can see from the video, it still looks a trifle… squirrelly.
Now watch. And if you’re not a fan of suburban nightclub house music, click on to 1:53 for the speed runs and 4:03 for terminal velocity…
