Nissan proves time and time again that they truly value the opinions of Nissan enthusiasts. And, today the Japanese automaker wants to know how you and your loved ones would react to a seriously sporty Nissan. To find out your thoughts and opinions the Japanese automaker has fused the best of the JUKE and the best of the GT-R together to create a new concept specifically intended to test the public's reaction. Suitably named the Nissan JUKE-R is the first super crossover the automotive market has ever seen.
"JUKE lends itself perfectly to a sports derivative and JUKE-R explores that territory," says Paul Willcox, Senior VP, Sales & Marketing Nissan in Europe. "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."1
Even though the Nissan JUKE-R concept is still in development we do know that the concept is equipped with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine borrowed directly from the 530-horsepower Nissan GT-R. The concept also embodies several other features from the Nissan GT-R, including a six-speed transaxle; modified GT-R RWD driveline; and prop shaft and bold 20-inch, alloy-forged RAYS.
Nissan devoted a lot of energy in designing the JUKE-R concept's interior and exterior to ensure the interior and exterior effectively reflect the concept's advanced power. The concept's exterior gains flared wheel arches, redesigned front and rear bumpers, and exclusive split rear wing, while the JUKE-R's interior embodies a suite of accents and features that make the JUKE-R look ready for race day.
