Nissan Juke R 2.0 Concept

Revealed at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Nissan is back with a newly improved version of the Juke, the Juke R 2.0. Taking on the famous hillclimb is Nissan’s GT Academy winner Jann Mardenborough and is expected to perform incredibly at the Festival. The concept is based off of the original Juke R from 2011. The overall goal of the project was to borrow the GT-R’s twin turbocharged engine and all-wheel-drive systems and make them work in a hatchback format.


The updated Juke features many new additions from a heavily redesigned front fascia and bumper, to a carbon fiber rear bumper and diffuser. The front fascia allows airflow to freely cool the engine, while the rear is meant to hold the SUV firmly to the ground. The lights and front bonnet are taken directly from the 2015 Nissan Juke, while the color remains the same as the first Juke R, matte black. The same two rear winglets at the top of rear window act as spoilers, creating even more down force for the back end. Newly designed wheels are larger than the old Juke R and offer more grip than its predecessor.


The interior has remained largely untouched, with only a slight change to the black headliner. The same instrument cluster and dash design are in play inside the Juke R, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Ease of use and comfortability is high on the priority list of the Juke R’s interior.


Borrowing from the GT-R NISMO, the engine in the Juke R is a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6, delivering a whopping 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque, the new Juke is slightly more powerful than the old model, which only 492 PS compared to the new Juke’s 600 PS. Reaching 60 mph is estimated to only take around four seconds.
