A revamped version of the prototype shown in 2001, the new Orochi V-6 sports car from Mitsuoka will appear at the 37th Tokyo Motor Show when it begins on Friday.

With a low-profile reminiscent of the Ferrari (its overall height is just 1,167mm), the two-seater Orochi features aV6 DOHC, 3300cc engine and five-speed automatic tranmission.

The design changes bring the car in-line with public safety standards in Japan. Check for updates in coming days.
