This isn't only the most hideous car offered for sale this year on the planet Earth, but also expensive and rare. There's only one of these cars in existence. And nearly six hundred people put in orders to buy it at 7-Elevens in Japan.

Yahoo News reports that there were 588 orders for the one-of-a-kind Mitsuoka Orochi with a Neon Genesis Evangelion anime paint job.

Priced at 16 million yen (US$134,000), the car is the most expensive item 7-Eleven has ever offered.

The 588 orders will be entered into a raffle later this month, giving one lucky (?) winner a chance to part with over a one hundred thousand bucks to buy this car. That is, a car that looks like it's covered in alien barf.
