The Japanese like to do things differently and stand out from a crowd with car manufacturer Mitsuoka Motors being the best example.

Nihon Automobile College (known as NATS) is also no stranger to creating a range of weird and wonderful cars. Just look at this picture.

As you can see there's a Lightning McQueen, a mini Rolls Royce Phantom and an Audi R8, with the school using cars such as an MX-5, Honda S660 and Suzuki Jimny as the basis for their creations.

Its newest project sets to be the best yet, which involves taking an Toyota 86 and converting it into a ute.

If this wasn’t already a cool idea, NATS is actually transforming the coupe into a mini Lamborghini Urus pick up.

Work is currently underway to make this a reality, with the students removing the rear seats to make way for the tray bed while also adding a Lambo-styled front end, flared wheels arches, larger alloy wheels and rubber.

Under the bonnet remains the Toyota/Subaru 2.0-litre four-cylinder, but it's been turbocharged to make 198kW/304Nm.

The final product will be on display at the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon, which runs from January 11-13, so the students are cutting it fine.
