Nissan Has Made World's First Supercar Crossover Even Better

Supercars / Comments

And it's coming to Goodwood.

Since arriving on the scene back in 2011, the Nissan Juke-R has become a cult hero. Combining the guts of a Nissan GT-R with a body of a Juke, the world's first supercar crossover was built to order, priced at around $600,000. And yes, people actually bought them. Now, the Japanese carmaker has taken things even further, with a more potent Juke-R Nismo set to debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this month.

Aside from the single teaser and the briefest of press releases to say the latest evolution of the Juke-R would use "the latest technology, styling and running gear from NISMO products," that's all there is to go on right now. If we had to speculate, then we'd assume the Juke-R Nismo will utilize the GT-R's latest 3.8-liter turbo-six rated at 592 hp, which should help it to reach 62 mph in around three seconds. Hopefully Nissan will have it ready to take on the hill climb at Goodwood, and if it does, we'll make sure to bring you all the action.
