Mitsuoka Orochi Premium Gold

Like a fish out of water, almost literally. This Japanese oddity is called a supercar by its manufacturer, yet it only has just over 230 bhp, go figure. In any case, marvel at its uniqueness. If you want to stand out, get one of this. Mind you, they cost almost 100,000 Euro. BTW, Premium Gold is a special edition of the car, and it adds the peculiar looking rear spoiler among other quirks.

Engine: Toyota 3MZ-FE V6
Displacement: 3.3 liter
Power: 233 bhp
Transmission: 5-speed automatic

Interesting.

But with a name like that it sounds like an ointment for
delicate parts so uncool in my books.

That has to have been designed in some place like Malaysia or Philippines, just do eye for design at all, the sort of thing a school boy would doodle.

Uncool, but extra points for making an effort. You can't accuse it of being just another bland-box.

Anything that is styled on a fish is a no-no in my book.

Seriously uncool.

I thought it was a new brand of instant coffee.


Ugly, expensive, gutless, sad excuse for a sports car.

Seriously uncool.

The middle picture of the left hand column of three makes it look like it's something out of the Cars film, talking away!

Uncool. Would be seriously uncool, but it's getting point for trying to be different.

It's more random than anything. It's not cool, but I'm not sure it's uncool either. I shall give it more thought.

Oooh, I'll take the Super Happy Lucky Panty Boy Turbo Model F, thank-you very much!

You know, the one that looks like Morse's Jag, only more crap and less good. That one.

it's eccentric, a bit like spyker's supercar, therefore it is cool.

I don't find the styling of this car all that bad. It almost gets enough points for trying that I could vote it 'cool', but a modern sports car with a torque converter automatic is just too wrong.
