The Nissan Juke R is one of those crazy, head-scratching conversions that have you dumbfounded until you drive it. The little crossover from Nissan is powered by the same drivetrain as the GT-R. The twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 engine produces about 485 horsepower and 433 lb-ft. of torque, sending the Juke R to 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds.
Nissan claims that the Juke R is the fastest crossover in the world and to prove it, they brought it to Dubai where it took on the Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4, and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. The Nissan Juke R video is a bit grainy, but shows just how incredibly fast the car is. Right off the bat the Juke R claims the lead while the other three struggle to keep up. Now, we’re not sure if this is just marketing for Nissan as nothing has been said about how competitive the race was. One thing is for certain – the Juke R is one fast little monster!
Officially, the Nissan Juke R can accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 160 mph.
