Mirage (Colt)

The Mirage (Colt), launched in March 1978, was originally developed in response to the global call for greater conservation of resources and better fuel economy. It had a stable trapezoidal shape, a low-drag slanting front and flush surface panels. It was also the first car to feature Super Shift transmission, with a secondary shift level that allowed the driver to change between Power and Economy ranges, for high performance and low fuel consumption.
