You must agree that Nissan Juke is an extraordinary styled mini-crossover and one of the most exciting cars on the market today. What about Nissan GT-R, this supercar is surely notable for impressive performance. Well, guess what? The Japanese automaker decided to combine these totally different cars to present what Nissan calls ‘the ultimate compact crossover’. What I mean is the bug-eyed crossover with a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 implanted in its belly. To be exact, the complete GT-R powertrain is used for this one-off concept. The Juke-R is currently being built by RML in the UK. In case you don’t know, the RML Group is a motorsports racing team and engineering company. These guys are known for building fun and outside the box project cars and this time it’s the Juke-R, a monster with 480 hp, which accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds. Now think of Porsche 911 Carrera that goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. Can you believe a crossover is capable of that?
The Super Juke’s exterior was also modified. You can see from the sketch below that the model received a revised front and rear end, a split rear wing, and the same 20-inch Rays forged wheels as the biggest of its brothers. As for the interior, the sporty Juke borrowed gauges, dials and the 7-inch LCD display from the GT-R. As promised by Nissan, the finished model will be road legal, though not for production. Meet the Juke-R in twenty two weeks. Now check out the sketches of future monster and the RML Group building this project.
Take a peak into the development of Nissan Juke-R by motorsport pals at Northants-based RML. These guys are building the model sitting much lower than its less powerful sibling and add an aggressive body kit. With Super Juke being ready to start testing next month, we’re impatient to find out what it can do in the real world.
