The Mitsuoka Himiko Roadster Is Big, Weird And Ugly

The Mitsuoka Himiko Roadster Is Big, Weird And Ugly

The Mitsuoka Himiko is Asia's answer to America's unbelievably gawdy Excalibur. Built on a Mazda MX-5 Miata platform and powered by a 167hp 2.0 four-cylinder engine, the Mitsuoka is a hard-top roadster that features a litany of awkwardly placed styling elements, including a massive front grill and a quartet of bulky rear lights that look like puss-filled pimples.

The white whale featured here was recently spotted at an upscale restaurant in Beijing, parked in front of a row of Nissan GT-Rs. According to local reports, there have been several Mitsuoka dealerships opened in major cities in China over the past year.

Buyers in China wishing to purchase a new Mistuoka will have to fork over approximately 850,000 Yuan, or 139,000 USD. Why anyone would buy this fugly roadster is beyond us.
