Return of the Classics – Mitsuoka Himiko [Exclusive Slideshow]By Staff


mitsuokahimiko

Last week, we brought you a car that could potentially become Korea’s classic. I felt bad because I didn’t give you guys a slide show with the post. Well, you guys earned it this week. Above is the Mitsuoka Himiko, a new folding hardtop roadster built on the Mazda Miata Mx-5 frame and drive train. Styling seems to be based on Morgan Aero 8 and the rear end has some similarities with the Wiesmann GT.  I love cars with this design. I remember the old Mercedes and Rolls Royce cars that looked like this and wish I lived in that life time!

The Mitsuoka will have 160 horses pumping it, powered by a 2.0 liter, 4 cylinder which has 189Nm of torque @ 5,000RPM. The power is sent to the rear-wheels through the 6 speed manual gearbox. The Mitsuoka Himiko is available in three different trim forms, the Standard, the Premium and the Hi Premium. The interior of all three Himiko models is essentially the same as the MX-5′s but with a few wood trim panels. The car will be priced at around $60,000. That’s not so bad, I can save that much if I start early!

The Mitsuoka Himiko is equipped with a folding hardtop also courtesy of the MX-5 donor car. Today’s Slide show will be a little different. I will also show you some concepts that have also been made under the same Mitsuoka name in Japan! Here is that slide show I promised:
