Back in 2011, several HEROES at Nissan got the crazy idea to take the baby 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder engine out of the Juke mini-crossover and swap in the engine and gearbox from the mighty GT-R. The result was the Juke-R, a 545 horsepower ball of crazy. Now the Juke-R is back with even more power. Hooray!
Lots of Nürburgring videos on this site lately, huh? This one is better. Because 800 horsepower Nissan Juke.
The Russian Nissan Juke R is possibly the coolest tuned car in existence right now. It is both unofficial and more powerful than the 'standard' Juke R. Powerful enough to roast all four tires on the move.
A team of Russians built this unbelievable, unofficial Juke R. It's gearing up to compete against Ken Block at Gymhkana GRiD this weekend. Here's everything you need to know about the car with a "power output of a Chernobyl reactor explosion."

We exclusively broke the news of Nissan Europe's Juke R project back in September. All we knew then was some strange "super Juke" crossover had been endowed with a GT-R's engine. Since then, we've seen all 11 episodes of its build-video series on YouTube. Now we've driven it. But is it all we hoped for? Let's find out.
Nissan's in-house Juke-R project has produced two running examples of the slightly insane toad/Godzilla crossbreed. The right-hand-drive version recently did laps around England's Silverstone circuit for the benefit of journalists.
The GT-R-powered Nissan Juke we first, exclusively, told you about last month now has a name: the Nissan Juke-R. Oh, we'd Juke-R. We'd Juke-R so good Carlos Tavares would chase us down with a shotgun and make us marry her.
