The RZ Colt is the cabriolet version of the seventh generation Colt and was released on the Australian market in June 2006. The cabriolet was designed by Pinifarina in Italy. It was available with one of two 1.5 litre engines - the 4A91 and the turbocharged 4G15 both DOHC with MIVEC. It was only available as a 5 speed manual.
