A few months ago, Nissan hinted that it will be building a hardcore Nissan Juke with a GT-R-based concept. I’m not too sure if the Juke has ever landed on our shores but I haven’t seen one and I haven’t seen a press release from Nissan Philippines about it. Anyway, the Juke’s a mini crossover that Nissan primarily markets in the US.
Nissan thinks of making the 480 bhp Juke monster a reality by doing a one-off production following very positive feedback on the concept. Dubbed the Juke R, the car will be fitted with a 3.8L twin-turbo V6 from the flagship GT-R and will be mated to a modified six-speed transmission that will be sending power to all four wheels.
Nissan’s just intent on seeing how the Juke’s sportiness would match up to the wickedness of the . The Juke is currently offered with paltry 1.6L gasoline NA and turbo units and a 1.5 diesel.
It would be interesting to see how the chassis would cope the immense power of the V6. Hope this doesn’t end up in twisted metal.
