There’s no doubt that the Mitsuoka Orochi is one of the ugliest cars in the world. And we know that there is rarely a time that something that ugly goes away quickly and quietly. Japanese maker Mitsuoka, however, is attempting to sway the attention from the horrific display of craftsmanship on over to the new special edition supercar they have just unveiled. The Premium Gold will be limited to only 20 units and will be priced at almost $100K.
The Premium Gold edition features a new front spoiler and two elements on the trailing edge of the body. A new exhaust system with four pipes is also attached and, in the interior, Alcantra leather is added.
The Orochi Premium Gold is powered by the same Toyota sourced V6 engine that delivers 231 HP and is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. Now, go back and read that statement again. We’ll wait....
Yes, Japan is trying to sell this "supercar" for almost $100K and it only delivers 231hp. Makes one think what the hell is going on over there. After years of concentrated effort (the car has been in the works since about 2001 when the concept was unveiled) we would think that they could come up with something better than this. We doubt there will be a rush for the 20 that will be produced.
