(from Orochi Press
Release) The "Orochi Nude Top Roadstar" is a new design
proposal that expands the frame of the conventional "Orochi". There
are many reasons for loving and for selecting a car. These include
specifications, driving performance, environmental performance, new
technologies and how well the vehicle matches your lifestyle.
However, one other key reason is "design".
Isn`t it fair to say
that "design" is one of the simplest and easiest to understand
reasons? Some designs just seem cool and leave a powerful
impression. These designs move your spirit and sensibilities in a
way that can only be described as "love at first sight".
Our design approach is
to vividly and directly appeal to one`s sight, spirit and
sensitivity. The "Orochi Nude Top Roadster" exemplifies how this new
approach is taking form. We applied a more open design and gull-wing
doors to the previous road-version prototype "Orochi". The name
is well suited for this beautiful and stylish design.
We even went so far as
to not attach any side mirrors in order to create a daring design
that would bring forth this new "Orochi". We hope that you will take
close look at this unique design.

Commercial Vehicle - "Orochi"
We have redone the
chassis and body panels for the commercial "Orochi" currently being
developed and various other preparations are being made for the
start of testing.
We have had many
inquiries from customers eagerly awaiting the new "Orochi". All of
our employees have been working hard together with an unwavering
purpose in order to realize commercialization of this car. We would
like to ask these loyal customers to wait just a little bit longer.
Our company president
Akio Mitsuoka will be attending our press conference scheduled for
19 (from 3:55 p.m.). He will provide more details on the progress in
developing the new "Orochi", as well as some of the specifications
that will have been determined by that time. In the meantime, we
sincerely hope that you will stop by the Mitsuoka Motor`s booth at
the Tokyo Motor show.
