A wondrous white Mitsuoka Orochi crazy super kinda car, Spotted in China in front of a Mercedes-Benz dealer near the Bird’s Nest stadium in Beijing by reader Rippley 5150, thank you for the photos! The hood Orochi was guarded by gold poles and red ropes, and that is the care that this car deserves.

A beautiful black Mitsuoka Orochi, seen in the great city of Zigong in Sichuan Province. The vehicle is used to attract buyers for fancy new apartments, accompanied by a pretty girl dressed in Pink.
Using super cars to sell houses is pretty common in China, especially in second and third tier cities. Earlier on we saw a Ferrari Enzo in Putian, a Bentley Mulsanne & Gallardo & Hummer on a red carpet in Wuhan. Super cars are also used to promote all sorts of other businesses, like karaoke bars and wine shops.

The very first Mitsuoka Orochi has been spotted in China, this fine white example was seen in the great city of Wenzhou in Zhejiang Province. Mitsuoka arrived in China in early 2012. The mad Japanese brand has dealers in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. So far we met two Himiko roadsters and one Galue sedan, but the fantastic Orochi is the pea on the pie.

Here we have a very black Mitsuoka Galue III, seen by our great friend ‘Edsel Ford’ (no kidding!) in the mad city of Chongqing in central China. The Galue III sedan is based on the Nissan Fuga aka Infiniti M, power comes from a 2.5 or 3.0 V6. Mitsuoka is a crazy Japanese coachbuilder, they debuted in China in January on a local auto show in Beijing where they also showed the Galue Convertible, which is based on the Ford Mustang. Note license plate, 6 is a lucky number in China, the owner of this Mitsuoka must be very happy with his vehicle.

The Japanse sportscarmaker Mitsuoka has arrived in China. Mitsuoka debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show in April and yet again on the ‘Beijing Imported Car Exhibition’ in late November where I met all their crazy cars in person. They have now opened their first dealer here in Beijing, time to have a look at what they offer. On the first pic the brilliant Orochi at the Beijing show.
