Nissan Juke-R 2.0 Holds Its Own Among Supercar Royalty

Video

Compact, lightweight and packing a 600-hp punch.

When the Nissan Juke-R 2.0 debuted at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, it didn’t just sit around looking pretty. The GT-R powered crossover joined the supercars and hypercars for a sprint up the hill. When it reached the summit, we managed to get a quick walkaround video of the updated Juke-R, which has seen its output increased to a neck-snapping 600 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque. While performance specs haven’t been released, we expect a 0-62 mph time of around three seconds.

Aside from the upgraded engine, the Juke-R 2.0 features a new carbon-fiber front bumper with larger air vents for better engine cooling, and a carbon-fiber rear bumper and diffuser. The front and rear wheel arches have been restyled, the head- and taillights match those found on the recently refreshed Juke, while the interior remains almost unchanged.
