Nissan couldn’t certainly miss the Goodwood Festival of Speed where is going to display its small but mighty Juke-R. The super crossover, as we said before, presents improved mechanical features compared to the first prototypes. The 2007 Nissan GT-R sourced twin-turbo V6 engine with 485 hp fitted in the concept has been replaced with the updated version producing 545 hp, mounted on the GT-R my2012.
As a reminder, the Juke-R in the previous state of tune of 485 hp accelerated from 0 to 100 Km/h in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 257 km/h. This last figure was officially confirmed by Nissan, which, however, never validated the acceleration data, that are presumably lower. Besides the engine, the production version of the Juke-R is equipped with a new gearbox and the updated drivetrain and chassis of the GT-R my2012. The decision to create a limited series arose after the successful presentation in Dubai, where the Japanese manufacturer collected their first orders.
