NISSAN JUKE-R GETS READY TO IGNITE THE TEST TRACK

  • First official audio of Nissan Juke-R engine
  • New Nissan Juke-R images and video footage
  • Nissan Juke-R testing to begin mid-November

New images and video containing the first official audio of Nissan Juke-R's beating heart - its 480bhp, 3.8-litre engine - have been released ahead of official testing later this month (November 2011).

Dubbed the world's fastest crossover, Juke-R is a unique concept car that combines the power, speed and handling of Nissan's flagship GT-R sports car with the bold, exciting design of the Juke crossover model. Images and video reflect the thought-provoking, energetic style of this urban rebel crossover, while its foreboding matt black finish enhances the car's rebellious personality.

The car's unique, impactful styling places Juke's curves and lines over GT-R's 3.8-litre engine, drivetrain and suspension, making Juke-R the most testosterone-packed compact crossover in the world. It is a force to be reckoned with not only in performance but also in its bold and menacing design.

Large, provocative vents in the front bumper provide cooling for the Juke-R's twin turbo V6 engine, while subtle submerged ducts in the bonnet help draw air through the engine bay. Flared wheel arches cover the GT-R's 20-inch RAYS forged alloy wheels to merge with a new sculpted skirting. At the back of the car a dynamic split rear wing provides the supercar crossover with downforce, while twin pentagonal exhausts emit the GT-R's evocative engine note.

Inside, the Juke's motorcycle-inspired console is at the centre of a modified interior cabin fitted out to go racing complete with twin race seats, full race harness and a race-spec roll cage. GT-R steering wheel, pedals, dials and 7-inch touch-screen display are built into a modified version of Juke's dashboard.

Officially announced by Nissan Europe in October, Juke-R is not a production car but a special, road legal concept car. Two versions of the Juke-R are being created - one in left-hand-drive and one in right-hand-drive. Juke-R will go into testing in late November before it's unleashed on the world to take on the urban playground.
