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.

This car looks awesome and sporty with its exterior design. I love the aggressive and powerful look of this 2010 Mitsuoka Orochi Premium Gold. The mouth at the front is like the mouth of a whale shark.

Whoa! This vehicle is absolutely looks so unique and aggressive on its exterior appearance! It looks awful but not lazy but too bad they didn’t justify the angst on its appearance because it only had a power output of 231 HP.

Wow. I like the aggressiveness of the hood of the car. It is like a Piranha. By the way, the horsepower of the car is not that impressive. I think Mitsouka is scared to create a super car. Even a concept will work for them.

Well the "spoiler" in the rear reminds me of a pair of spider legs. Can’t believe they made this uglier.

I dont know what Uncia is talking about. A GT-R costs $85,000 here(USA).

$109,000 will buy a ZR1 with 638hp. $85,000 will buy a 505hp Z06 Carbon.

Even if it costs $50,000 this car is not worth it and it is ugly as hell.

I agree, it looks like a hammer head shark with a mouth of a piranha.

It’s not really $100K if you want to put it into perspective for us Americans. The two countries’ economies are different, and the R33 GT-R, for example, cost the equivalent of $50,000 American dollars, but would have cost roughly $80,000 U.S. dollars to actually purchase in Japan. Likewise, the Orochi Premium Gold edition really costs around $60K-$65K. And while it only has 231 bhp, it is also very lightweight and hits 60 mph in 4.4 seconds while providing one-of-a-kind styling. All things considered, the price is reasonable, especially with the limited number being produced.
