F1 Driver Flogs Juke-R on the Track

Video

Watch Formula 1 driver Vitantonio Liuzzi thrash the extreme crossover around a wet track.

Perennial supercar aficionado Marchettino recently got to ride shotgun in the awesome Nissan Juke R while Italian F1 driver Vitantonio Liuzzi did a couple of quick laps around a wet and cold track. Combining the shell of the Nissan Juke with the suspension, brakes, four-wheel-drive set-up and 545-horsepower twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 from the Nissan GT-R, the Juke-R is a wild machine and carries an equally wild price tag of $600,000. It can sprint to 62 mph from standstill in an estimated three seconds flat and hit a top speed of 170 mph.

The three-minute video is a mix of onboard and exterior footage, giving us a comprehensive look at the crazy crossover accelerating, powersliding and drifting from a range of angles.
