Nissan 'Juke-R'



A couple of months ago, news of the Nissan Juke-R Concept hit the web. Nissan execs Jerry Hardcastle and Paul Wilcox gave the project the nod and approached the minds at Ray Mallock, Ltd. in the UK, who subsequently chopped at Nissan GTR by 250 mm and saved the all-wheel drive system, suspension and beefy 485 horsepower twin-turbo V6 — much to the delight of automobile enthusiasts all over the world. The result is strangely magnificent, especially with the matte black paint job and the blacked out wheels, but it’s the performance and handling that really blow the mind for a car of this type. 160 mph, zero-to-sixty in 3.7 seconds and on-rails in the twisties capability. Nissan is also putting it into limited production and added a horsepower boost to 545 ponies.
