Remember the Nissan Juke-R, the crazy Juke with the GT-R engine? Nissan has confirmed performance figures for the little monster, and it will do 0-100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 257 km/h. With that, they’re calling it the world’s fastest crossover.

The 3.8-liter V6 twin turbo VR38DETT is not the only thing coming from the GT-R. Besides the 480 hp engine, the Juke-R gets Godzilla’s six-speed transaxle, with a modified four-wheel drive driveline and propshaft linking things together. It also gets the GT-R’s suspension, an FIA-spec roll cage, unique split rear wing and 20-inch RAYS forged alloys.

No news on it making production, though. Only two prototypes have been built, one in left-hand-drive and one in right-hand-drive. It is a fruit of a 22-week collaboration between Nissan, motorsports outfit RML and Nissan Technical Centre Europe.

Crazy! More pics can be had in our previous post.
