Nissan Juke GT-R

Discussion in 'Car Talk' started by Francesco Huber, Oct 5, 2011.

  1. Nissan has released the first official pictures and a video of the super-crossover. The baby is called Juke-R

    And has a 3.8 - liter V6 bi-turbo petrol engine from the GT-R under the hood. It owes its bold appearance flared wheel arches, a split rear spoiler, new bumpers front and rear and massive 20 - inch wheels with forged aluminum rims.

    In addition to the 530-hp bi-turbo V6 takes the JUKE-R six-speed dual-clutch transmission in a mid-mounted, and the modified four-wheel drive the GT-R and also the interior of the compact crossover combines the features of the Juke and the high performance athlete. While the Juke-R retains the reminiscent of a motorcycle tank center console of the production model, the dashboard has been redesigned to accommodate the display and the seven-inch, adjustable LCD display of the GT-R.

    The sports seats have a five-point safety belts, roll cage meets the safety standards of the FIA and the vehicle will give maximum rigidity for the ultimate in performance.

    There are two individual pieces of the super-crossover: a left-hand drive and right-hand drive version. The first tests on the road should be completed in November. Series production is planned.

    Basically for me, an ugly car, but with this modification, he looks really well ....
    What do you say to that?

    Thats one hell of a car!! 3.8 liter in such a car, wow.
     
  3. I don't see the point of this car. Nissan spent a lot of money to build a car from a GT-R thats actually worse than the original. Basicly this is a GT-R with a Juke-like outher body shell, Nothing is retained original. Lowered, widened body, cockpit moved backwards etc.
    It would be awesome if it was built by a man in a shed like these:
    Merlin V12 powered Chevy Bel Air

    Or this:



    A good example for a factory build :wink::

    I would rather have this Juke over the actual R35 anyday.I myself never really liked the R35. I liked the GTR's up to the R34.
     
  5. As much as I HATE Juke, I love Juke-R (at least the one in the pictures they provided)... but I still prefer GT-R over it :)
     
  6. Nissan 3 in 1. The problem with all things 3 in 1 is that they never do any of that 3 perfectly.
    But I agree it's a cool looking little car:)

  9. +1

    Ugly car artificial car...

    I'd take a CTS-V Wagon anytime before that...
     
  10. I love the CTS-V, though it's not a very common car here in Europe. It must be available though somewhere as I watched/read reviews of it. (though I wouldn't buy one probably as I would rather go for cheaper/less powerful cars)

    Now we're talkin bout a real car car here guys!

    [​IMG]

    550+hp 0-60 in a rumoured 3.9 seconds and "Feel in the seat of you pants" Acceleration and torque. Unlike most "Japcrap" hey i'm Japanese,i'm allowed to say that lol! lack heavily in the torque department. I'm very selective of which Japanese cars i like. Oh yeh and your wife and kid are comfortable too! Throw on a set of Magnaflow exhaust and the noise alone will make the R35 hide underneath its rear spoiler!.:tongue::D

    Sorry R35 fans but it is a overpriced car that a old lady can drive to the supermarket.:frown:

    Better yet i'll take one of these too!:cool:

    I have to say I like this car, at least the idea. In the same way I like the Renault Clio V6. I'm not a fan of the skyline models except the KGC110, but this one is quite cool. Would have been nice with an even smaller car, more subtle design and with the engine in the back, but this is cool too.

  14. Love 'em !

    I'd have a CTS-V with the darker rims though ! A bit like the Hennessey V700 ?

    For the Vette I like them all but it got to be the amazing Z06 Centennial Edition !

    Yup Yup! I'am a fan of the R32/34's though, Good eras. Love to have one just like this!

  17. For the Skyline I only like (Actually I find this one very epic) the good ol' RWD race-spec 2000GT-R like in your pic there !

    Otherwise I also find the R-32 very nice...

    The rest are just plain tuner cars for me...
     
  18. wow!
