The Nissan Juke Nismo RS, at the hands of veteran stunt driver Terry Grant, has set a new world record for the fastest mile travelled on two wheels in a four-wheeled vehicle at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Grant took the performance-oriented crossover on a 1.6-km dash in only two minutes and 10 seconds on his attempt – smashing the previous record set by him in 2011 by 45 seconds.

To clarify, the car used was not the Nissan Juke-R 2.0 concept but an actual production car powered by a 1.6 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 215 hp and 280 Nm of torque. The Nissan Juke Nismo RS completed the record run with an average speed of 44.3 km/h. “I was shocked at how much faster the Juke Nismo RS was, and to take 45 seconds off what was already a quick time, was unbelievable,” said Grant.

Naturally, one would assume that Grant would be taking some time off following his record-setting run but like most daredevils, he’s already roaring to get back in the hot seat for another attempt. “I’m looking forward to seeing if I can go faster,” concluded Grant.
