Nissan Unleashes Updated Juke-R 2.0 With Even More Power
Oh, was the original Nissan Juke-R not powerful enough for you? Did it not blow your mind by beating a Lamborghini and Ferrari on the track? Well good, because Nissan just built an updated version with even more power for the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Such an apt venue even for a car like this. It’s cleverly called the Nissan Juke-R 2.0, and under the hood is a twin-turbo V6 ripped straight out of a GT-R Nismo. It puts down 600 horsepower to all four wheels — replacing the lowly 545-horsepower version we saw back in 2013. PHOTOS: See More of the 600-Horsepower Nissan Juke-R 2.0
The body also got a few new design cues. The front and rear bumpers were completely revamped, giving even more downforce to the already slippery body kit. There’s also some new carbon fiber on the wheel arches and side sills, and that split wing in the rear helps keep this monster machine on the ground.
So how quick will it get to 60 mph? Nissan won’t say. But considering the previous version did it in about 3.0 seconds flat, we can only imagine how quick this thing will get up and go from a dead stop.
