Some car designs just don’t mix, and trying to force them together could make you lose your appetite. You’ve been warned.

First, worry not, because your eyes are not deceiving you. You truly are looking at seven of the most “unholy” car mashups we’ve ever seen. The only thing missing is for these cars to suddenly start speaking Latin and laugh maliciously.

But before we go looking for a priest, let’s run through each of these images, courtesy of Click Mechanic, and at least try to make some sense of what we’re looking at.

Let’s start with the Batmobile wannabe, you know, because at least it looks drivable.

#1 BMW i8 + Dodge Charger

The classic Charger and the modern BMW i8 couldn’t be more different. One is a plug-in hybrid with sporty features and futuristic looks, while the other is a gas guzzling muscle car that will mostly drive sideways if you don’t stay off the throttle.

Put them together and you might get something like this thing, which features a massive V8 with a blower, chrome bits on the wheel arches and a NASCAR-style spoiler at the rear. It’s weird, but at least it looks like it would be fun to drive, right?

#2 Bugatti Chiron + VW Beetle

This one makes sense from a branding standpoint, since VW owns Bugatti. You’ve got the all-new Chiron hypercar in one corner, and the classic VW Beetle in the other.

Make sure to take it all in, from the heavy chrome bumpers and alloys to the Beetle fenders. Overall though, you might as well put Dick Dastardly and Muttley in this car and call it a day, because it’s really wacky.

#3 Pagani Huayra + Chevy Camaro

Here’s another one you might be tempted to at least drive, since it’s comprised of a Pagani Huayra and a classic Chevrolet Camaro. It’s rugged American muscle meets crafty Italian engineering.

It’s got headlights from both vehicles, classic wheels, plus another NASCAR-style spoiler, just like on the i8 Charger. We’re not so sure about its aerodynamic properties though.

#4 Nissan GT-R + Nissan Juke

Another family affair, this time from Japanese automaker Nissan. It actually looks kind of cute, if we’re being honest, but don’t let that stop you from letting us know how much you hate it, if that’s the case.

Besides, if you’re a GT-R fan, the last thing you want is for it to be associated with something like the Juke, an urban-oriented crossover that never even got to break the Internet.

#5 Ford GT + Ford Raptor

If somebody ever managed to actually build this car, the waiting list on it might actually match that of the regular Ford GT. The mashup shows a very aggressive vehicle, one that should have no problem with going off-road, while able to win plenty of straight line races as well.

In a way, it’s the best of both worlds. The only thing missing is room for more passengers and luggage.

#6 Lamborghini Aventador + Lamborghini Tractor

If you want to take Lamborghini back to its early beginnings, you could then try to build something like this Aventador-inspired tractor and it probably wouldn’t be all that hard either.

All you need is the tractor, plus an Aventador front fascia, which doesn’t even have to come from the real car – some people can just make those for themselves. As for this one, it also features a massive winch and a connector for fitting it with a large plow.

#7 Ferrari LaFerrari + Fiat Multipla

This is a really fascinating combination, in the sense that on one hand you’ve got arguably the most beautiful car ever built in the LaFerrari, and then you’ve got one that many consider the ugliest car ever, in the Fiat Multipla. We can call this either the LaFiat or the LaMultipla, you decide.

The contrast between the two speaks volumes, and in a weird way, they kind of match, since they’re both Italian…but let’s not kid ourselves. Consider the hypercar properly insulted.

Posted by Brad Anderson in Games, Gran Turismo, nissan, Nissan Juke, Playstation, SUV on 11 15th, 2017


A limited-run version of the Nissan Juke, dubbed the GT Sport PlayStation, has just been introduced to the Spanish and Portuguese markets.

Created to celebrate Gran Turismo Sport on PlayStation, the special-edition Juke will be limited to just 500 units and be available in either Ultramarine Blue or Pearl White.

To ensure that the Juke GT Sport PlayStation stands out from a run-of-the-mill Juke, the Japanese automaker has fitted a set of Tokyo Black 18-inch wheels, PlayStation graphics, custom badging, faux carbon fiber door sill protectors, Gran Turismo Sport floor mats, and a shark fin antenna.

And yes, buyers will also receive a PlayStation 4 console and a copy of the video game.

Interestingly, the Nissan Juke isn’t actually available in the game. In fact, the only Nissans in the game are different versions of the GT-R and the Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo.

A Nissan Juke Was Modded For All Things Rallying 4

When you’re building a rally car, it’s usually something that’s fundamentally sporty, which should all but eliminate the Nissan Juke from contention.

Yet, owner Lars Wolfe built this 2013 Juke as the so-called “multipurpose racer”, modifying it for hill climb events, rally, road courses, rallycross and pretty much anything else rally-related.

While it’s powered by a 1.6-liter direct-injection factory unit, the engine underwent several modifications, including a custom turbocharger and ECU tuning. In other words, this is definitely not your girlfriend’s Juke.

As for the interior, it’s been stripped down and properly customized to handle rallying, which obviously means no backseat, a pair of Sparcos in the front, roll cage, the works.

So what’s it like to drive on canyon roads? Pretty fun and mighty loud, according to The Smoking Tire’s Matt Farah. He deemed the steering feel as being very precise, the brakes were good (even though the car has no ABS and the wheels can lock up) and so was the acceleration.
