In 1971, the Datsun (née Nissan) 240Z further cemented its reputation in the racing world with its victory at the East Africa Rally. Now, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Z Car’s run, Nissan has designed a JUKE Rally Tribute Concept.
Nissan chose the JUKE as the base for its rally concept because it already boasts a naturally raised stance that makes it ideal for off-road modifications. For the renders, Nissan enlarged the JUKE’s wheel arches to make room for oversized all-terrain tires. They added rally lights to both the roof and hood, as well as a rear tire carrier. The JUKE’s livery matches the 240Z almost perfectly, right down to the black hood and wheels. Powering the concept is an engine that didn’t exist in 1971: an electric hybrid powertrain that offers the benefits of instant torque and greater efficiency.
