- Juke Nismo RS

Everyone has there own opinions on everything, even in the car world. However there are some that seem to recurr over and over again. Here are 10 very unpopular opinions I have on cars. Oh boy here we go...

1. THE DODGE DEMON IS POINTLESS

Now I'm not a huge Challenger fan to begin with, but when Dodge announced they were making a high power "drag version" I was hyped up. I was expecting something along the lines of the COPO Camaro, but this wasn't the case. Dodge's car was road legal. And that was a good thing. Or was it? I'm not convinced. Hear me out. So. You have just bought yourself a Dodge Demon for $85,000. You now have a car that can be used as a dragster, a town potter, a highway cruiser, you get the jist. But why. That's my question. I personally don't see why this is necessary. I mean a normal Hellcat is fast enough, as well as significantly cheaper, and comes with all four seats as standard. (I know it only costs a dollar but still.) And then there's the fact that it doesn't have to be rebuilt to make it road legal. Personally, if I wanted a cheap street legal dragster, I'd buy a red-eye. Much easier.

2. THE JUKE NISMO ISN'T THAT UGLY

Now hold your horses, I'm not saying it's pretty, but I don't think it's as bad as people make it out to be. I do much prefer the Juke R, but that's technically a GT-R Nismo. The regular Juke is a bit bland and plain looking but the Nismo version looks quite funky, and I dig it. And yes it's pointless, but who cares? (Don't think that's an excuse to like the Demon :) I don't really know how, but the Nismo boys seem to know how to make any car look cool, even the Juke. And i can understand why people think it's ugly, but to say it's one of the ugliest cars of all time is a bit unfair, and quite frankly, wrong. I feel the cross-hairs aiming at my head right now.

3. THE CULLINAN LOOKS BETTER THAN THE BENTAYGA

I don't really see how people like the way the Bentayga looks. And I'm not saying it's the ugliest car in the world, but it's not pretty. When I first saw the Cullinan, I hated it and so did everyone else. But for some strange reason, it's growing on me. I have no idea why but I kinda like it. In a weird kinda way. I definitely prefer it to the Bentayga, even though the Bentayga is faster. Of the two, I'd have the Rolls, and I'm proud to say that.

4. THE R34 ISN'T THE BEST SKYLINE

Now if this wasn't obvious, you clearly don't know me. A lot of people demand and shout that the R34 is deemed the best of the 4 main GTR's but I disagree. For a few reasons.

1.) The R32 is more successful when it comes to racing. This is not to say that the R34 isn't successful, but it's not exactly remembered as being a racer, whereas the R32 is, ever since it won at Bathurst.

2.) The R33 looks better. Now this is purely an opinion but I respect that. But then again so is this whole damn article. I like my cars like I like my... something else. CURVYYY! (I'll let you guess what ;) The R33 has many curves and smooth edges. The R34 is just too boxy for my liking.

3.) It's only famous because of fast and furious. Just like the Supra, the R34 is only famous for one reason. Fast and Furious. And let's be honest here, would we really care about the R34, OR the Supra if it weren't for that film? Probably not. It would be the same if they had used an r33 instead, or even a Mitsubishi 3000GT. A Nissan Pulsar. ANY vehicle could have been used and it would now have the same appeal as the R34. Right?

5. CLASSIC VW'S DON'T DESERVE THE LOVE

Obviously I am on about the classic Bus and Bug. The Beetle and Camper. What ever you call them, there's only one word for them. RUBBISH! In every, single, way. They look terrible, they drive terrible, they break all the time, they stink, and they're slow as hell. And yeah, they were revolutionary, but so was the Toyota Prius, and nobody likes them. So why should they get so much love and attention? (I will accept that Rat Rod's, restomods and off road models are cool)

6. I LIKE THE NEW TOP GEAR

Now this will cause some heated debate. I like new top gear. There I said it. Do bear in mind though, I am talking about the one with Paddy, Freddie and Chris, not the one with Matt, Eddie and Evans. No. I think Top Gear is actually pretty good with these 3. Yeah it's not the same, but it's not bad. I think it's actually watchable to a point of some enjoyment. Long live Top Gear.

7. SUV'S AREN'T THAT BAD

Now I might be biased as I have one, but I genuinely don't think SUV'S are that bad. Please understand that Crossover's do count as SUV'S in my eyes, so they are included. One of my particular faves is the Audi Q8, which picked up quite a negative reception when it came out. Why? What's wrong with it? It looks fantastic. I think it's just Salty Audi haters that don't like it. Come on people. In all seriousness though, I think SUV's are pretty cool, especially big American ones.

8. FORZA HORIZON 4 IS OVERRATED

I am one of the few people who feel that the horizon games have got worse over the years, with the exception of Horizon 2. Here's why. It's now so family oriented it feels a bit, childish. I liked the old game, with explicit song lyrics and a proper story mode. That's all gone now and we have the abomination of Horizon 4. Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but the whole character customisation with dances and silly costumes is just that; silly. The car side of the game is excellent (except the poor sounds) with excellent customisation and a great car list. But the game itself is a bit... meh.

9. I'M NOT SO BOTHERED ABOUT THE DECLINE OF MANUAL

This is something I've decided very recently. The fact manual gearboxes are going doesn't bother me. In fact, Automatics are better for pretty much everything nowadays. Obviously I am talking about DCT gearboxes instead of conventional old fashioned automatics. Old automatics are slow and boring, new ones are quick and snappy, like a rabid chihuahua on crack. I've driven with both gearboxes and I do like the idea of a DCT. Not that I hate manuals or anything

10. MODERN LAMBOS AREN'T AS GOOD AS OLDER ONES

This once again is purely an opinion as on paper, they aren't technically worse. But, I do prefer both the Murcielago and the Gallardo to the Aventador and Huracan respectively. I think the older cars both look and sound better (I prefer curves to points). Again this is just a personal preference so I fully understand why people like the newer ones.
