Never mind the Mitsu-provided renderings we brought you earlier this month. Japan's Carview has been to the Mitsukoshi department store in Tokyo's Nihonbashi district, where the one-of-a-kind Mitsubishi i "Princess Kitty" special edition is on display.

True to the renderings, the Princess Kitty is a rolling tribute to the loveable Sanrio character. Pink paint, special decals, and a themed interior complete with kitty-shaped headrests are the car's not-so-subtle identifiers.

Later this week, a drawing will be held at the Mitsukoshi store to determine who gets the right to buy the car, which is likely the most interesting Hello Kitty collectible ever.

Head over to the translated Carview page to see the rest of their photo gallery.

      I'm sure a lot of 4 to 8 year old girls would love this car. But the only thing is 4 to 8 yr olds can't drive or buy cars. I think it is "UGLY". The price will probably be high, waste of hard earn $$$$.

      "But some dumb American will buy it."

      Have you noticed the driver sits on the right? I hope no Americans are THAT dumb.

      It's a good way to keep track of your daughter on a Saturday night. Everyone in town will know where she is....

      Oh Jesus Beezus! I've always taken great offence at the car making folks because of their utter LACK of creativity. When I ride in my moms gold Toyota we have to push the panic button to figure out which one is hers because of the fifty OTHER gold Toyotas. I am sick to death of plain old ugly colors. Gold, silver, tans, YUCK. Just plain boring. Congrats to ANYONE doing anything different. I absolutely love this car and yes, I'm American and extremely proud to be one. I personally think you'd have to be majorly anal not to "get" this as something, for once, for those who don't want to look like everyone else. Conformity sucks.

      My Maine Coon cat Ashley would like to order one, only if it comes with a Schnauzer for a chauffer. Ashley has always liked being called "Princess" and loves Schnauzers. Ashley also wants to know if a matching clothing line is available. LOL.

      I don't think there's enough Japanese schoolgirls in the U.S. to warrant releasing this here.

      This exemplifies the national trend towards people buying cars that look different, not cars that perform well. there are two types of people on the highway...Drivers and Vehicle operators, the latter usually driving impaired by Cranial Rectitus, and causing most of the problems.
