Absolute Madness: Nissan Juke-R

Remind me later
You'll either love or hate the Nissan Juke. But breed it with a GT-R and what you get is an absolute animal of a machine. That’s what Nissan have done. Nissan-Juke-R The Nissan Juke is far from being a normal car itself. That will be one of the very reasons people will love or hate in equal measure. However, if you reckon the Juke is a bit too tame, you’d best check out the Juke-R. So what makes the Juke-R stand out from the standard car? The clue is in the name with what the “R” stands for. The Juke-R is a performance model that has inherited much of the technology and engineering from the GT-R. Nissan’s engineers have extensively modified the Juke. Slotted under the bonnet is the 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 engine that pumps out a colossal 480bhp. To handle the power, the Juke-R the technology, the four-wheel drive train and running gear from the high performance GT-R. It’s reported that the Juke-R will hit 60mph in four seconds and go all the way to 196mph – Porsche 911 territory. Nissan-Juke-R-Rear The Juke has also been lowered, stiffened. With aggressive: air vents, body kit, side skirts, spoilers and the 20inch alloys wheels from the GT-R fill in the wheel arches complete the transformation. The Juke-R’s menacing stance certainly looks the part. Whether Nissan will make the Juke-R into production and put it on sale remains to be seen. If you’re an extrovert, you will love the Juke-R.
