The Mitsuoka Orochi may not be a very well-known car, but when it comes around, its unique styling makes it the highlight of the party. However, just because a car is unique does not mean that it will be around forever. That being said, Mitsuoka is ending production on the Orochi, according to an AutoEvolution.com article from April 23.

To commemorate the Orochi’s end of production, there will be five special “Final Orochi” models built. These models will feature a dark “old mauve” finish that the automaker calls “Fuyoru,” or a lighter “Gold Pearl” finish. Also being added to these final editions are 19-inch wheels, a front lip spoiler and a rear wing.

In order to purchase this car, however, you must live in Japan, which may be one of the reasons why the car’s popularity has not increased worldwide. Another factor may be that the car is only powered by a 3.3-liter V6 engine, which is connected to a 5-speed automatic transmission. This relatively small engine must use all of its might to push along the 3,483 lbs car.
