remember the one-off Nissan Juke-R that was stuffed with GT-R’s livery? it was done and Nissan was out to prove that what it did was more than just skin deep. the Nissan Juke-R’s 485 horsepower 3.8-liter V6 twin turbo, mated to a GT-R six-speed transaxle transmission, rockets it from stand still to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds and sending this four-wheel driven SUV towards a top speed of 257 km/h (160 mph). with these figures, Nissan has just successfully created the world’s fastest crossover. check out a couple of larger images and a video clip of the Juke-R in action after the break.
