Friday Video: Mitsubishi Colt Targa in Armor of God

Twenty-five years ago the film Armour of God broke the following things: Hong Kong’s box office records, a tree in Yugoslavia, and, in a stunt gone awry, Jackie Chan‘s skull. Chan was rushed to the hospital to remove a fragment of said skull from his brain. Fortunately, he survived to bring us this thrilling chase involving a built-for-the-movie Mitsubishi Colt that looks like the mutant love child between a Dome Zero and an AW11 MR2. The film also breaks many Pajeros and any semblance of reality once the Colt’s “Twin Turbo” button is invoked, all leading up to a surprise Batmobile-like finale. Where can we get that option? Also note that the letters spelling “MITSUBISHI” across the spoiler gap are actually molded.

    Molded letters? But that’ll make it harder to replace with “COLT (imported for Dodge)”

    The Armor of God was the First Operation Condor film titled “The Armor of God” (’87). Jackie then made the film Armor of God II:Operation Condor (91) keeping the Character and name Jackie Condor aka Asian Hawk.

    That was some serious old skool stunt driving there! He’s done a lot more movies that had some crazy driving scenes. Considering they were old skool, I’d bet a lot of those stunts were done by Jackie himself. Don’t think there were stunt doubles or super crazy CGI effects lolz.
