The Nissan Juke is on one hand, an severely underrated piece of machinery with potential for some actual performance, and on the other hand, rather ugly.

The second point from above can't be fixed, but the first can certainly be capitalized upon. While Nissan has not said this Juke NISMO concept is going to production, we'd waged that it will and sincerely hope it does. NISMO's new strategy is to not just focus on Nissan's performance cars, like the 370Z and GT-R, but to tune the more pedestrian models as well. In order to demonstrate their new plans they concocted this Juke, complete with flared fenders, a new tailgate spoiler, a stiffer chassis, improved engine output, leather trimmed bucket seats, and some 19 inch wheels.
