Japanese specialist carmaker Mitsuoka has given its Himiko convertible a soft-top option, in addition to the standard retractable hard-top

The Mitsuoka Himiko is based on the Mazda MX-5 roadster, and has featured a power-retractable hard-top only, until now. The new Himiko Classic Edition now comes with a soft fabric top, and will be limited to just 20 units in Japan.

The Himiko Classic Edition also gets the same two-tone, black and red exterior colour scheme with a decorative chrome strip running on the sides as the Himiko Hardtop edition. The interior, which is based on the MX-5, gets special red leather seats and ornamental wood trim throughout the car.

The long-nosed roadster, which is inspired by classic British roadsters such as the Morgan, is powered by the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that is found in the MX-5. It produces 170bhp when mated to a five-speed manual, and 162bhp when paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.
