Article by Christian Andrei, on June 2, 2015

European audiences will be treated later this month with the sight of Mitsuoka Motor's "classic" Mitsuoka Roadster that will make its debut in the UK. It will be seen in numerous showrooms situated across Surrey, South London and Kent. It will be exclusively distributed by T W White & Sons.

The Mitsuoka Roadster pushes the boundaries of traditional design and totally revolutionizes what the world expects in a true modern day classic sports car. The Mitsuoka Roadster features a British sporting design of elegant lines that flow. Its styling can be considered as timeless but it comes with the highest levels of comfort, technology, and safety.

The 2.0 litre Coupe comes with either a 6 speed manual transmission gearbox or a 6 speed automatic Powershift gearbox, which may be easily driven into auto mode selection or by making use of the easy paddle shift controls. The Roadster is rear wheel drive and has an impressive high power to weight ratio. It comes with the most sophisticated technology and has cutting-edge safety features and modern conveniences.

It features the quickest power-retractable hard top in the world. It only takes one flick of a switch and this top can open and close in 12 seconds. Standard equipment includes luxury heated leather seats and automatic climate control air conditioning.

The Roadster is designed to be the ultimate in safety and security with its four wheel anti-lock brake system (ABS) with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Traction Control System (TCS) that are all standard. Even the front and side airbags and the Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) come as standard.

The UK stands for one of the biggest classic car markets worldwide, according to Jen White, Mitsuoka Project Manager for T W White & Sons. White added that this Roadster’s unique design is inspired by the classic Roadster and merges conventional styling with the latest technology. Susumu Mitsuoka founded the Japanese automobile maker Mitsuoka Motor Company in 1968.

It has only recently become famous outside of Japan. It hires skilled craftsmen to build a small number of hand-built luxury vehicles in the Japanese plant. This company is known for its timeless classic cars that are produced by a company that values luxury, craftsmanship, and elegance.

White also said that they share Susumu Mitsuoka’s philosophy and passion and that they are of the belief that the Mitsuoka Roadster will make a “real impression” on those who are looking for “exclusive luxury at a very competitive price.”

With a standard on-the-road price of £53,800, the Mitsuoka Roadster is available with Power Retractable Hard Top with either a manual or automatic transmission. For £620 more, buyers can opt for the Metallic or Pearlescent paint. VAT is included in all the prices.
