2001 Mitsuoka Orochi Concept

Posted on 6

Little known outside of Asia, Mitsuoka Motor Co. is a smaller Japanese car manufacturer that primarily builds retro-looking automobiles that are usually to some extent derivative of well-known classic cars from England.

By contrast, the mid-engine Orochi is definitely a bold and original styling statement. There doesn’t appear to be much information available on this concept. Early reports were that the first showcars put on display did not run. Though that may have been true, the one picture does show that they did get at least as far as an operable and road-going prototype.

I wonder if they really had any plan to put it on the market? Anyway, the exterior design of this concept is absolutely looks so confusing! Well, if the kids see this one they might be afraid of it. smiley

Look at the front rear of the car. It seems to have a fang and will bite me whenever possible. BY the way, the article provided is short. We still need more specifications from the features of the car, interior and exterior.

I say bravo. Anybody who reads Chinese wish to give some specs? If the performance was similar, I’d probably take one of these over an F430, just to be different.

Orochi referred to as a supercar, but while it looks as (if not more) exotic as just about any limited-production vehicle on the planet.

It lacks the performance credentials (on paper, at least) to put it in supercar territory. The most recent Orochi features a 3.3L Toyota 3MZ-FE V6 engine with 230hp on tap.

Mr Orochi should get an award for the worlds sexiest car ever built. I have never seen such a jaw dropping car since the old Dusenberges built back in the 30s

89 grand for a V6 with 230 HP car??I would think on paying this amount if the car was very attractive, but this is not the case. The rear is neat, very good looking, but come on, it looks like the guy that made the rear was on heavy drugs when he designed the front. What the hell is that grille for god’s sake.
