Nissan Juke-R: Creating the World’s Quickest Crossover

Nissan has released the 11th and final video of its series documenting the making of the Nissan Juke-R, the Japanese manufacturer’s latest concept which has been dubbed “the world’s quickest crossover.” Essentially, the innocent compact city exterior of the Juke-R belies the monstrous power and genius of a GT-R within – 480 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque, 0-to-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 160 miles per hour – impressive numbers for a 4WD mini-SUV. It’s shame Nissan won’t be producing this for the consumer market anytime soon, but some extremely fortunate people will get to test either of the two left- or right-hand drive models currently under construction.
