Second Place of concept car category: NISSAN's JUKE remodelled car

Of course, there are some unique remodelled cars also. In terms of appearance, this model of Nissan JUKE Personalization Adventure Concept has caught the attention of most of the visitors this time. Instead of a tire, the cars run with crawlers. It realizes the dream of a man who wants to drive the car on a snowy road or a mountain road. Thank you, Nissan, to realize this with JUKE!

The process of tire change with Super Formula is in front of you! You can also experience it!

A professional has explained the role of work to me. The total of the team are three people,  to do tire replacement work, and they have shown us by completing the work within 11 seconds. Their work was really quite without any wasted movement.
After that, the visitors are able to experience changing tires on their own also. All the experienced people were surprised at the "lightness" of the tires.
