mitsuoka_orochi_motorauthority_003.jpgGet a bunch of car journalists together and a few conversations are inevitable. Stuff like, "What's the best car ever, period?" or "What's the dumbest car you've ever purchased?" The answers are full of variation (Porsche 959/McLaren F1, Citroen DS/BMW 750iL) and typically end with me asking, "Aren't you guys interested in anything besides cars?" Deaf ears and all that. My point? If the question of world's ugliest car were to come up, there can be no debate. Mitsuoka Orochi is the answer. All other suggestions are utterly wrong. And Motor Authority tells us that, like some latter-day Godzilla, left-hand drive examples of the Orochi are leaving Japan to fry eyeballs in Qatar, UAE, Thailand and Jordon. No, really — look at this monstrosity. What could be more awful? How an NSX-based sports car can make the Pontiac Aztek look like Jessica Biel is inconceivable, incomprehensible and totally unfathomable, but there you go. As for me, I'm stocking up on Raid.
