When Nissan unveiled the hot Juke-R crossover three years ago, everyone was surprised and excited to say the least.
A compact crossover with Nissan GT-R drivetrain and suspension along with an FIA-specification roll-cage and 545bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine, good for a 0-62mph time in just 3.0 seconds and a top speed of 170mph were some impressive numbers.
Since then the GT-R has also evolved and here is the Juke-R 2.0 concept, debuting this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Based on the updated Nissan Juke, the Juke-R 2.0 uses 600hp engine from GT-R Nismo and even more muscular, bolder and powerful look.
Gareth Dunsmore, Marketing Communications General Manager for Nissan Europe said, “The Juke-R has become an iconic Crossover supercar and with the launch of the latest Juke model last year, it was the natural choice to upgrade the original Juke-R with added power and even bolder styling. The Juke-R 2.0 is a perfect ‘crossover’ of the best bits of Nissan – real innovation showcasing our Crossover prowess fused with the excitement of the GT-R supercar engine.”
Performance specs were not released, but we can only imagine the updated 2.0 version is faster than the original model.
Just as with the first Juke-R, the production model will be built in very limited numbers, costing from £400k.
