Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

As far as records go, this has got to be one of the most... pointless. But good gravy it’s amazing to watch!

The Goodwood announcers say the car’s got “underpinnings of a GT-R,” but I think they’ve got this confused with another similar-looking specta-car: the Juke R. This is actually Juke Nismo RS, which you can buy at a Nissan store right now.

As you nerds might remember, stunt-driving legend Terry Grant actually set a previous two-wheel one-mile speed record at the 2011 Goodwood Festival Of Speed (03:55) in another Juke. Anyway now the Juke Nismo RS is out, which Grant describes as “mega” so you know it’s good (and that he’s British.)

Welp spoiler alert; he done did it. And Grant’s confidence or skill must have gone up a lot in the past four years too, because Goodwood Road & Racing says he absolutely annihilated his 2011 record with a new time of 02:10... the Nismo RS isn’t that much quicker than a regular Juke!

Hear Grant do his bit getting hyped right here:
