Nissan Shows its Sporty Juke Concept

The car is not for production and is a one-off, road legal concept car, developed by Nissan and built by leading motorsports outfit RML (Ray Mallock Limited) with input from Nissan Technology Centre for Europe (NTC-E).

It is expected to complete first tests in November. The announcement was made today, Oct. 4.

Nissan is now creating the Juke-R, claimed to be the first ever super crossover. Under the bonnet is a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine adopted directly from Nissan’s flagship supercar.

Under the boot floor hides the GT-R’s six-speed transaxle, with the front and rear ends joined by a modified GT-R 4WD driveline and prop shaft, while chunky 20-inch RAYS forged alloy rims fill each wheel arch.

The interior merges crossover and supercar with finesse, as the Juke’s dashboard has been transformed to accommodate the gauges, dials and 7-inch customisable LCD display from the GT-R.

The Juke’s centre console, inspired by the fuel tank of a motorcycle, remains while the rest of the interior has the look of a machine bred for the track. Twin race-seats with five-point harnesses sit inside a visible roll cage that gives FIA safety standards as well as enhanced rigidity to provide the ultimate performance, the company says.

“Nissan Juke is one of the most exciting cars on the market today. Its bold crossover design has captured the imagination of car buyers all over Europe; after just a year on sale we are celebrating sales of more than 100,000 units,” said Paul Willcox, senior VP, Sales and Marketing for Nissan in Europe.
