The Mitsuoka Himiko is a roadster built by Mitsuoka, and sold in the UK as the Mitsuoka Roadster.

The Himiko is based on the Mazda MX-5 NC, with a design inspired by classic English roadsters such as the Jaguar XK120 and particularly the Morgan Aero 8. Transmission and roof options are similar to the MX-5 with the option of either a 6 speed automatic transmission with manual shifting or a 6 speed manual transmission. Each Himiko is handmade at the Mitsuoka factory in Toyama City, Japan.
