TOTD: What Oddball Cars do You Want to See in Racing Trim?

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 6/20/2014 Alex Nishimoto

If a vehicle has wheels and some means of propulsion, you can bet someone's tried to race it. But not all cars are given the chance to compete in the big leagues, with automakers usually choosing race cars based on how competitive or how marketable they might be. The latter reason explains why Volkswagen is racing a Beetle in the Global Rallycross Championship. That car has gotten its chance to shine, but what other unlikely race cars also deserve a shot?

The Nissan Juke is one oddball that might make an attractive race car. The road-going Juke's styling is a love-it-or-hate-it affair, but add some stickers, a lower stance, and some of the bodywork of the Juke R, and you might end up with something a bit easier on the eyes.
