The Nissan Juke-R Has the Engine of a Nissan GT-R

The Nissan Juke-R is an exciting new concept car that plans to merge the roominess and stylishness of the Juke with the utter badassness of the GT-R. The Nissan Juke-R is all crossover on the surface, but underneath the hood it houses the 480 bhp 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine found in the GT-R.

Aside from having the same engine as the GT-R, the Nissan Juke-R also has a redesigned interior that reflects its supercar soul. The Juke-R will come equipped with racing seats with five-point safety harnesses and a roll cage with the in-dash display also designed to reflect that of the GT-R.

Putting the engine of a supercar into a crossover city car is something that many people have dreamed of doing. Nissan is actually doing it though, with plans for two real Juke-Rs to debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in December. The concepts will be used to actively gauge public opinion on whether or not a Nissan Juke-R would sell well or not.
