Nissan has proven once again to be a leader in the automotive industry with the new Nissan Juke-R. This madcap little crossover with the heart of a GT-R is now a production reality. Since the vehicle is being built on an on demand basis at a cost of around $650,000, this model has little in common, other than the look, of the everyday Juke.
The mile long race pitted a $2.3 million dollar 1000 horsepower plus Bugatti Veyron against the 700 horsepower Shpilli-Villi Engineering prepared Juke-R. The all-new Nissan definitely held its own against such an impressive and luxury model. If the Juke-R can battle a Veyron and is much more affordable, which one would you rather have?
The Juke-R features the GT-R’s 3.8-liter V6 engine and transmission, but Shpilli-Villi fitted it with a pair of HKS turbochargers for a large boost in horsepower. This combination produces 700-plus horsepower on regular pump gas or over 800 ponies when you splurge on higher-octane race fuel. The Juke-R definitely does impress when it comes to the power and handling of this boosted version.
