We’ve thought of taking our exoticness index to a much higher level, so here’s the unique explora Rapa Nui, on the Easter Island. It is one of the world’s hard to reach destinations, but, on arrival, it is even more marvelous then a simple mind could ever conceive.

Nissan describes the latest version of its Patrol SUV as a vehicle where “the refined power of the ferocious 5.6L V8 engine meets supremely crafted luxury”.  A bold claim and the Japanese maker is clearly aiming for the global luxury market with the new Patrol, borne out by some clever new features. It’s suitability in the widest range of conditions is played out in its four driving modes: on-road, rock, sand and snow.
