Mitsuoka Himiko
Mitsuoka Himiko
4.7/10 rating (3 votes)


The Japanese company Mitsuoka created this retro Morgan-like Himiko on the basis of the Mazda MX5. The style is very British, which is much liked by the Japanese public.

The front end of the car has been stretched by over 50 centimeters to create the long Morgan-like nose. The overall length is now 4.58 meters. The rest of the structure, including the folding hard top, seems to have remained unaltered.

The Himiko body may not look very contemporary, because the design is very, very retro, but all components like head and tail lights are taken from other modern cars. The tail lights look like they are ordered from the Hella catalogue and the head lights are taken from the New Mini.

The Himiko gets delivered with Mazda's standard 160 hp two litre engine and you can choose a manual of automatic gearbox. The car is available in only three colors: pearl white, metallic black and metallic red. The price in Japan will be 5,65 million Yen, which equals over 48,000 euros.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
