At first glance, or from afar, the rear of this Toyota Celica might pass as a wide body Nissan GT-R, but upon closer inspection, you'll see that it's just a knockoff. No word yet on what's under the hood, but even if it does come equipped with a tuned twin-turbocharged 1,000 hp engine, most racers wouldn't give it the time of day at the track.

South African electrical engineer Moses Ngobeni had always dreamed of building his own sports car, and he made that a reality.

Nissan's all-new 2017 GT-R has a top speed of 196mph and can go from 0-60mph in 2.9-seconds, and to put it to the test, the company built a drone capable of hitting 115mph. Now it may not have the range, but it out-accelerates the car to 62mph, managing to hit it in 1.3-seconds. This was made possible with a special custom design optimized to keep drag to a minimum. It's an FPV-type drone, flown in the same way as competition drones, which means the pilot has a headset that relays a drone-eye-view to him, enabling pinpoint precision.

This followup to the original Juke-R may look similar, but it's definitely no slouch. Powered by a 3.8L twin-turbo V6 from the GT-R NISMO that produces 600-horsepower, this family crossover has been given new life as a performance vehicle.
