Japanese Automaker Rips Off Caddy, Rolls-Royce for China


Mitsuoka is arriving in China with some new cars, based on pre-existing ones.

Japanese automaker Mitsuoka has opened their first showroom in Beijing, China, and CarNewsChina was there to snap some photos of their latest wares. There are three cars up for sale, namely the Orochi, Himiko and Galue Convertible. There is something interesting about these new models, however, as they are shockingly (sarcastic voice) similar in design to models we are already familiar with. The first model they offer is the Himiko roadster, which runs on a Mazda-sourced 2.0-liter engine.

The engine puts out 162hp and 139lb-ft. of torque. It looks surprisingly like the Morgan Aero 8 and is based on the Mazda MX-5. It runs 850,000 yuan, or $154,000 U.S. The second model is the Galue Convertible, which appears at the front to be a replica of the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe. The rear is very Cadillacy. It runs on the Ford Mustang's 4.0-liter V6 engine with outputs of 215hp and 240 lb-ft. of torque. It prices at 1.15 million Yuan, roughly $182,000 U.S. The last model is the Orochi supercar, which takes its motivation in the form of a 233hp 3.3-liter V6 engine from Toyota.

This particular car is actually pretty unique and prices at 2.2 million yuan, which translates to about $350,000 U.S. Check out Mitsuoka's offerings for the Chinese market and let your opinions be heard on what you think about the latest models making their way into the Far Eastern market.
