Mitsuoka Galue S50 Limousine Dropped on Unsuspecting Public
The model for this limo – executive sedan is, believe it or not, the Infiniti M, but the styling elements are “borrowed” from the Cadillac Fleetwood, The Rolls Royce Phantom and even the Apple iPhone. Bet you didn't see all those cars when you looked at this baby. OK, Maybe you saw the Phantom grille, but the iPod? We're not buying that.
Other than the Rolls grille, other “influences” include the Cadillac taillight protrusions and the extremely thick B-pillars, typical of 70s American Caddys, but don't go thinking for a second that since the car is not a “brand name” it will come for a cheap price.
True enough, it's far cheaper than a real Rolls, but at 68,000 euros, it's still something of an eyebrow raiser. The top version, with the 313 hp 350LX engine will set you back 80,000 euros and it has 4WD system fitted to it.
If you like turning heads on the street, but not in the usual, admiring way, than this is definitely the car for you. Just don't feel bad when babies start crying and glass windows randomly break as you drive by, it's one of the side effects of owning such an “unique” car. For a more detailed look, click on the gallery below. As for us, we still can't decide what's the worst angle to watch this car from, though the profile is a tough competitor up to now.
