4 Interesting Special Editions
Performance won't really matter, but weirdness will also be counted
Since my previous article regarding special editions did surprisingly well. I want to give this list one more shot. The difference between this one compared to the other is that performance won't be the only thing that matters, how strange this special edition will also play a factor with these special editions. Also there should be only 2,000 special editions that will be made.
Chevy Blazer Chalet

Alright, picture this. You are in a road trip with your friends going from Houston to Texas and you both got really tired on the way to your hotel. Instead of pursuing to your hotel of choice, which is still a long way to go, your friend decided to take a nap on his Blazer and you feel like you wanna sleep in the Blazer as well, but the Blazer's room is all occupied by your stuff and you just wanna sleep in the car. Well worry no more, with this Blazer Chalet. The biggest noticeable is the back. The back features a kitchen including a refrigerator and a cook top, bed for two. The only issue is that the camper is quite small, but full of features that will be right at home at a RV. I found one going for sale with a 400 cubic inch 8 cylinder. The camper's shell is made out of fiberglass reinforced plastic over steel framing. According to motor1.com, only 1,800 of this blazer was made.

Alright, the Juke is possibly the worst looking Nissan out there in the market since the day it launched, but what if you want a Juke for racing. Well, Nissan has your answer and think what other Nissan has the "R" badge and if you thought about the GT-R, well Nissan fit the VR38DETT pushing 485 horsepower from the GT-R R35 into the Juke. In the performance department, it can do 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, top speed in 160 mph. The Juke is fitted with the GT-R's suspension and drivetrain and their wheels, FIA approved roll cage, a special split wing and lowered ride height. This is possibly the rarest Juke out there. Only two are made, one in left-hand-drive and the other in right-hand drive.
Ford Focus RS 500

The 2nd generation Focus is quite a good looking hatchback and the Focus RS is just purely magnificent to drive with a turbocharged 5 cylinder engine making 301 horsepower, but Ford want to do something to get more and more british people into performance, as this limited edition focus isn't for sale in the U.S, so Ford rolled out the Focus RS500. The RS500 makes 345 horsepowers and for the Focus to handle all the power, a larger air to air intercooler, larger air filter box, bigger exhuast and a uprated fuel pump is installed in this Focus. They only made 500 of these Focus to commemorate the Sierra Costworth RS500 race car and if you are confused on which of the 500 Focus RS500 you have, don't worry as a plague next to the gear shifter will tell you which of the 500 of the quite interesting Focus you have.
Shelby Cobra Supersnake

I was watching some YouTube videos and I found a video titled "Meet the World's Scariest Car" by CNN Business and it turns out to be a Cobra. The Cobra is very dangerous, there was no traction control or ABS back then plus the only thing that will make it easier to drive is the coil springs. The Cobra Supersnake is the Cobra that will literally kill any human being when they just slightly press on the throttle, but why? That is because Shelby supercharged the 427 V8 to make OVER 800 HORSEPOWER in a car that only has coil springs. According to the video, one was made for Carroll Shelby and the other was for Bill Cosby before he was found doing very questionable acts. Bill loved fast cars (I mean who doesn't) and he want a fast Cobra, so Carroll obliged and when Bill got the car, he said that the car was very, very dangerous, so he gave it to a friend and tragically he died while driving the car. Only two are made and one is known to exist and was even auctioned off at Barrett Jackson and bought for $5.1 million dollars. I would assume he kept it in his garage for a long time and would never drive it ever again.
That is the end of the article and I would like to know how I have done. Did I do bad? Good? I would like to know, also I won't be doing more of this "special editions" in a long time as they kinda bore me after a while, I will let somebody else do it. Thank you for reading my article. Have a great day!
