Nissan Transforms The Hybrid JUKE Into A Fully-Kitted 240Z Rally Tribute Concept

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.
