Often times, a true masterpiece is created from the unlikeliest of automotive combinations. Such is most certainly the case with the Nissan JUKE-R. You wouldn't expect a modified variant of the Nissan JUKE crossover to reach jaw-dropping speeds. Then again you also wouldn't expect the model to come with the 485-horsepower turbocharged V6 of a Nissan GTR now, would you?
Nonetheless, the truth of the matter is that the JUKE-R "does" on both accounts. Flaunted as the fastest CUV in the world, the JUKE-R has enough oomph to elicit plenty of "oohs" and "ahhs." But some skeptics needed a bit more convincing of the model's power. So, to silence any naysayers, Nissan put its innovative automotive creation to the test and raced it against some of the top contenders in the supercar world. The result? The "wheel-spinning, power-sliding"1 JUKE-R left the Gallardo, SLS AMG and 458 Italia in the dust.
Needless to say, the results of this unofficial competition turned doubters to believers and produced some pretty awe-inspiring footage. In fact, you're a fan of the Nissan JUKE-R or not, Hunt Nissan recommends checking out the race for yourself at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OayXXRtdk4.
As for the immediate future of the speedy mini-crossover, Nissan decided to keep the model in Dubai after it made its debut at the Dubai 24 Hours.
