When Nissan first rolled out the Juke-R, it was nothing more than a pretty awesome practical joke – a Juke outfitted with a 485 horsepower GT-R power plant. Of course the joke ended up turning into a real deal street machine, with the brand actually producing a few of these for some wealthy enthusiasts. The Juke is back in action, this time with the more beefed up Nissan Juke-R 2.0.
If you thought the original offerings was out of control, wait until you get a load of this. Based on the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 from the GT-R NISMO, this little crossover has been tweaked to new heights. The end result is an unsuspecting crossover that puts down 600 horsepower – a massive increase over the original Juke-R. On the outside, plenty of carbon fiber components were used including the bumper and a set of winglets, while a matte black paint job rounds things out. The inside is pretty much the same, aside from a black roof lining, but who cares about the inside of a car like this? Expect the menacing vehicle to make its public debut at the Goodwood Festival Speed this weekend.
