At first glance, or at least from the picture, this looks like a Lamborghini, but upon closer inspection, you'll notice something is off. That's because it's actually a highly modified Nissan 300ZX coupe with 70,000 km on the odometer. Unfortunately, you won't find a beastly 720hp V12 engine underneath, but rather a 3.0L V6 Twin Turbo DOHC petrol engine. Continue reading for more pictures.

Japanese car manufacturer Nissan has developed the world's first self-cleaning car, which utilizes innovative 'nano-paint technology' that repels dirt before it gets a chance to take hold on the paintwork. A Nissan rep said: "The Nissan Note is first car to trial paint which could make car washes obsolete. Washing a car can be a chore - and a costly one at that. In response, Nissan has begun tests on innovative paint technology that repels mud, rain and everyday dirt, meaning drivers may never have to clean their car again."

On warm sunny days, this Nissan Skyline R33 GTR is orange, but when it gets cold, dark, and stormy, you'll see its dark side.

Boasting "paintwork that has the same effect on light as a black hole", this monstrous Nissan Juke-R is powered by a GTR engine that outputs 478bhp -- its "two-piece rear wing, the carbon-composite bumpers and sills, arch extensions sit as tightly over the 20-inch wheels as a swimming cap." Click here for more pictures. Continue reading for a video.

It doesn't juggle the power as communicatively as a GT-R, and if you carry too much lock out of corners it will understeer, but judge it right and this stubby little battering ram rips off into the distance, tyres howling, exhaust trumpeting that hollow-throated roar.

We have seen the future of racing, and it's the Nissan DeltaWing. Looking more like a futuristic Batmobile than a modern day racecar, this vehicle "comes packing a turbo'd 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine putting out a little over 180 horsepower, but when modified for racing duty, output swells to some 300 hp." Click here for more pictures. Continue reading for two videos.

The DeltaWing is a joint project between former Lola design chief Ben Bowlby and Chip Ganassi Racing, and pitched as the future of IndyCar. To reduce drag and optimize weight bias, the engine is mounted behind the driver and power is sent to the rear wheels. More intriguingly, with both the engine and driver mounted far back in the carbon fiber chassis, the ultra-thin front tires don't have to move much to elicit a change in direction.

The GT-R-powered Nissan Juke-R is now the world's fastest crossover vehicle capable of going from 0-60mph in just 3.7-seconds. That's right, "3.7 seconds may be a second slower than the GT-R, but it's only two-tenths of a second slower than the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG." Click here for more pictures. Continue reading for two videos.

The Nissan Juke R is a gaggle of impressive numbers: 1,540 hours and 22 weeks of development time, 11 videos of its development, several upset bosses, 480 GT-R-derived horsepower and 428 pound-feet - and to that group we can add a 3.7-second 0-to-60 time and a top speed of 160 miles per hour.
