Neon Genesis Evangelion Turned Into A Hideous Japanese Car

Neon Genesis Evangelion Turned into a Hideous Japanese Car

Just look at that. Do it! It's called the 7-Eleven Limited Evangelion Orochi. It's not only incredibly ugly, it's also incredibly rare. It's also the most expensive item 7-Eleven has ever offered for sale. That's right, 7-Eleven.

Based on the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime, only one of these special cars will be offered. Sankei News reports that the pricetag is a cool 16 million yen ($161,000). But how can you put a price on something that looks like this? Pretty easily, I guess.

Yes, this is a custom-painted Orochi from Japanese car company Mitsuoka. I like Mitsuoka! I think their cars are quite interesting and often silly in a very good way.

The Orochi, which recently went out of production, is about as silly as they come and, to be honest, one fugly car. The ugliest car in the world! But, hey, that's OK! It's so hideous I kinda dig it.

The backside doesn't look so bad. Not sure about this Evangelion-style paint job though.

But if you have 16 million yen to spare, this 7-Eleven anime car can be yours! From November 14 to November 30, prospective buyers can enter a raffle to purchase the one-off car at 7-Elevens across Japan.

    It seriously looks like Eva Unit 01 transformed into a car though.

    Nailed it!

    Aren't these a camry with a "sports" car shell over the top?

    Even unpainted it is a hideous car.

    Well at the very least they didnt paint moe versions of the characters all over it. Still as ugly as a bucket full of ruptured arseholes though.......

    I've never been good at seeing the "ugly" in things like this. Looks more interesting than most other cars on the road :P

    It would have been a more logical choice to use the Renault Alpine A310 for a promotion like this, I think. Although if it received the same paint job as the Orochi got, something inside me would have died a little.

      Was that Misato's car?

        Yup! I think they changed it to a Mazda in the films though. Can't quite remember the model but it had a rotary engine too. I liked the look of the Renault though.

    Not really loving the paint job but I always saw that car as looking like in belonged in the NGE world. More so as one of the angels though. Maybe this one?
