It's the nissan Juke and yes it is ugly. I was like use the Nissan R32, R33, R34, R35, or the Silvia S15, S14 or S13 hatch. Come on! =)
The Juke isn't that bad of a car despite its looks. Turbo + AWD in a practical package is very nice. I'd take my large displacement V8 over it any day but it's great to see some "fun" back in the Japanese car lineup. It's a shame, but Nissan seems to be the last one of them that actually cares about enthusiasts.
Didn't expect it to be a mecha, I don't really like that genre. I don't think the characters look like they fit in a mecha. Great though that Nakajima Megumi is singing the OP & ED themes, I really liked her songs in the Tamayura OVA.
That car looks like a Shinkansen E5 trainset in those colors.
