Nissan Europe has confirmed that a study of a one-off high-powered Juke crossover is underway.
Almost as bizarre as the marriage between Woody Allen and his adopted step-daughter Soon Yi, this unholy communion takes the awkwardly cute Nissan Juke and impregnates it with the awesome powertrain from the Nissan GT-R turning it into an oxymoron - a super compact crossover.
The vehicle, targeted to young excentrics, is internally dubbed "Super Juke". With the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 which produces 530 PS (390 kW / 520 hp) transplanted from the Nissan GT-R, the Super Juke should accelerate from 0-to-60 in less than four seconds.
Super sports styling will also be in full effect with enlarged wheel arches, front splitter, two-story rear wing and stripped-out interior for reduced weight.
This obscure collision of mechanical DNA could just be exactly what the industry needs right now. Not only does it have the potential to amaze and convert new Nissan fans but it could jump start the newest trend in concept tuning amongst auto makers.
Triple thumbs up from us!
