160mph Nissan Juke-R: Official Performance Stats Revealed

The crazy, 485bhp 3.8-litre V6 twin turbo Nissan GT-R-powered Juke-R has been performance tested – clocking a bonkers 160mph V-Max and 0-60mph in just 3.7s, making it the world's fastest crossover, in recent UK-based tests of both the right and left-hand-drive models! You can check out the full 22 week build at RML with advice from Nissan Technical Centre Europe (NTC-E) via: http://www.youtube.com/user/NissanJuke and http://www.facebook.com/NissanJukeOfficial. Nissan says: "Testing has proved that Juke-R enjoys supercar handling from a compact crossover, thanks to use of the Nissan GT-R’s suspension and drivetrain as well as an FIA-specification roll cage and unique split rear wing. In a straight line, the GT-R’s more aerodynamic shape ensures that its top speed is higher despite the same power plant being used in each. GT-R also remains lighter than Juke-R due to the roll cage and extra chassis reinforcement that has been required to place the supercar’s components into a Juke body. Incredibly, Juke-R’s physical dimensions obviously resemble Juke more than GT-R. The car is the same length (4135mm), height (1575mm) and has the same wheelbase (2530mm) as Juke, while the width has increased from 1765mm to 1910mm, with flared wheel arches surrounding 20-inch RAYS forged alloy wheels. Inside, the driver and passenger sit in OMP race seats, but with all the controls and instruments from GT-R at their fingertips. The 7-inch touch-screen display is in the centre of the dashboard, providing access to the wealth of information about the car to which any GT-R owner has become accustomed." The next installments of the mad project are scheduled for January when the Nissan Juke-R hits the road.
