Just when you thought you had washed the Mitsuoka Orochi’s image from your mind, it’s back – and it’s gold! Mitsuoka has just released the Premium Gold Orochi, which will be limited to a production run of only 20 units. This special Orochi is set apart from its kin with a unique paint job, additional spoilers at the front and rear and some “Premium Gold” badging thrown in for good measure. The cost? €95,000 in Europe, or roughly $113,407 (!) based on current conversion rates.

Those keeping track will remember that under the Orochi’s hood lies a Toyota-sourced 3.3-liter V6, good for 233 horsepower and mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. Hardly entertaining. Obviously, though, the most fascinating thing about the Orochi is its shape, and while we’re still having a hard time warming up to it after all these years, there’s no doubt that you’ll never get it confused with any other car on the road – especially with its new golden cloak and bizarre new wing.
