What was revealed as the Nissan Super Juke a few days ago is now officially announced as the Juke-R.
The one-off show car which is powered by the Nissan GTR’s engine is being created to gauge public’s interest in a seriously sporty version of the Juke. The car’s developed by Nissan and built by leading motorsports outfit RML with input from Nissan Technology Centre for Europe (NTC-E).
As mentioned the car is powered by the GTR’s 3.8 liter biturbo V6 engine. It also gets its six-speed transaxle and modified GT-R 4WD driveline and prop shaft and 20-inch RAYS forged alloy wheels.
The interioris upgraded too ad is modified to accommodate the gauges, dials and 7-inch customisable LCD display from the. There is also twin race-seats with five-point harnesses and a visible roll cage that gives FIA safety standards as well as enhanced rigidity to provide the ultimate performance. This really is a crossover for the track. The only question is, why?! Here’s Nissan’s answer:
“Juke lends itself perfectly to a sports derivative and Juke-R explores that territory. Equally at home on road and track, Juke-R showcases two of the most exciting cars in our range and highlights the technical innovation that drives Nissan. This car will more than live up to the dynamic driving experience we engineer into all our cars.”
