TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Nissan confirms Juke-R's performance specs

Nissan has finally revealed the performance statistics of its Juke-R and here are the numbers: its 3.8-liter V6 twin turbo engine sourced from a GT-R puts out 485hp, propelling the Juke-R supercar crossover concept from zero to 100kph in 3.7 seconds before it reaches its top speed of 257kph.

According to Nissan, testing has proved that the Juke-R enjoys supercar handling, thanks to use of the GT-R's suspension and drivetrain as well as its FIA-specification roll cage and unique split rear wing. The GT-R though is faster than the Juke-R despite utilizing the same powertrain, thanks to its more aerodynamic shape. The GT-R is also lighter than Juke-R due to the roll cage and extra chassis reinforcement that were required to place the supercar's components into the Juke’s body.

While the Juke-R shares nearly the same physical dimensions as the standard Juke, the supercar crossover concept is wider at 1910mm compared to the 1765mm width of the regular car. Accentuating this width are the flared wheel arches which surrounds the 20-inch RAYS forged alloy wheels.

Inside, the driver and passenger sit in OMP race seats but with all the controls and instruments from GT-R at their fingertips, including the seven-inch touch-screen display in the center of the dashboard that provides access to the wealth of information about the car's status.

As its baptism of fire, Nissan drafted the Juke-R to serve as the pace car at the recently concluded Dubai 24 Hours endurance race.
