The Juke-R needed a complete rework for just 480 horsepower. The Nissan Cube needs only a few bolt-ons to more than double that number, apparently.

Despite having very little experience with imports, the guys over at AmericanMuscle.com put together a hilarious video showing exactly how to get a Nissan Cube to crank out 1,001 horsepower. After the base dyno test, the crew outfitted the Cube with some Type R badges, dragon vinyl, a GT-R inspired rear wing and some new wheel covers.

The end results were off the chart. Check out the video below if you have dreams of seeing what a 1,001-hp Nissan Cube looks like.

        I actually was not expecting that much hp/tq at the wheels either.

      this was a lame video, the attempts at humor might be funny to the older crowd who over generalize. but other than that pretty lame. and yes i drive an import (11 wrx) and no there is not any stickers or giant mufflers. I find it ironic that their satire on what "import" drivers do to their car has been copied by domestic car owners as well. there are more than enough mustangs, cobalts, focus etc with the same tacky mods. not to mention the biggest offender aside from civics the dodge neon.

      Would have been more realistic if it was done with a honda civic.

      I drive a tweaked Civic and found this very funny :)) It is pretty funny to see a car that looks like it was made for the race track until you see those drum brakes in the back and realize it's just 'souped up' on the outside. But really, who cares and why the hate? I normally smile abit and move on. Let people drive whatever makes them happy. The people that hate on all japanese cars and even call the fun to drive sporty models rice are in my opinion as 'bad' as the ricers themselves. A true car enthusiast loves all cars that are based on a fun to drive principle of engineering, whether it be german, japanese, american or marsian. Just my 2 cents :)

      I half expected that, but I was also hoping to see someone go all out and crazy on the 1.8L and get it somewhere close to that figure. There are 1,000hp 2.0L Evo's so why not?

        Totally what I was expecting as well. I thought it would've been awesome after reading about that 1000hp Shelby Mustang coming out.

      Lol! I was fooled, It was serious enough at first to seem legit. I was having a hard time believing the 1000hp claim with only bolt-ons, but I've been surprised before.

      using this vid as a baseline, the Chinese market Jeep wrangler is at doing about 750hp-800hp (the Chinese dragon decal on the hood).

      I liked it. The "stickers, stick on portholes, and huge spoiler = MONSTER HP" is a little bit of an inside joke, but still funny.

      its not april fools, and its not 2002. super lame. autoblog you should be embarrassed for even posting this. what we learned from this video: for mullet car rednecks, being 10 years behind the curve is cutting edge

        You could just say that you thought it wasn't funny. The fact that you found it offensive tells me you may have a "triple chrome max flow T843^2" stick on hood scoop attached to your ride...
