Nissan-Juke-R-Nismo-teaser

Remember the Nissan Juke-R from a few years ago? It appears that the insane lovechild between the Juke crossover and GT-R sports car will have another younger sibling in time to come as the Japanese carmaker has just released a sole teaser shot of the upcoming Nissan Juke-R Nismo.

Set to debut on June 25 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the “world’s first supercar crossover” will reportedly arrive on the scene with the GT-R Nismo‘s engine instead of a mill from the regular variant. In its current application, the twin-turbocharged, 3.8 litre V6 pumps out a total of 592 hp and 652 Nm of torque.

Paired to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to the rear wheels, the Nissan GT-R Nismo clocks a 0-100 km/h time of just 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h, give or take. No prizes, then, for guessing how fast the new Juke-R Nismo will go from nought to 100 km/h – sources are indicating a time of less than three seconds and a top speed knocking on the door of 320 km/h.

Looks wise, not much can be deduced from the sole teaser except for the fact that Nissan’s latest monster will adopt an even more aggressive front fascia, replete with an edgier front bumper (marked out with red accents, of course) and wider wheel arches. Inside, the Juke-R Nismo will most likely be equipped with a full FIA-certified roll cage like its predecessor, along with body-hugging bucket seats.
