Chevrolet just restored first of the eight sinkhole Corvettes, the “Blue Devil” ZR1 which also made its presence at SEMA this earlier. But that’s not the only automaker to restore something and be proud of. Nissan just finished reworking on an old beat-up Maxima sedan.
Sounds pretty silly and unimportant, but the Nissan Maxima you see here is the one you might know from the “Luxury Defied” parody clip made by a Craigslist user named Luke Aker in order to sell the very used car.

The parody mimics ads for luxury vehicles, with most of the clip being filmed in a studio and having Irish broadcaster Rick Whelan’s voice over to sound like Richard Burton. The video gone viral and this raised attention even for Nissan.

"Once we saw his brilliant video, we knew we had to do our part to help Luke's land-yacht live on!"
said Nissan. "So we bought it and, based on fan suggestions, restored it to its former glory."

Nissan bought the worn out Maxima and after six months, the car looks brand new as a team of skilled mechanics have restored it to top condition. And following the original recipe, the automaker also made a video to dramatize the restoration process which you can see bellow along with the original ad on Craigslist.

We gotta say Nissan had more style than Chevrolet here.
