Nissan has just informed us of a short film they have created about the Nissan Juke-R street race in Dubai and a series of teaser videos to help promote it.
The short film, which was directed by award-winning film director Rob Kaplan and shot in high definition, is about PS3 Gran Turismo gamer-turned-professional race driver, Lucus Ordonez, who races the Juke R against Salah Salahuddin's supercar collection.
Held at the beginning of the year as a side show event for the Dunlop 24 Hours of Dubai race, the Juke-R was pitted against Salahuddin's Lamborghini Gallardo, Mercedes SLS AMG and Ferrari 458 Italia around a make-shift 0.58km race course at the Dubai International Marine Club. Ordonez beats them all by a large margin.
The Juke-R is the unholy union of a Nissan GT-R powertrain with an extensively modified Nissan Juke chassis. The all-wheel drive Juke-R produces 485 bhp (362 kW / 492 PS) and can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100kph) in just 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 160mph (257kph).
Update: The film has been revealed. Check it out below.
