The first pictures and video of Nissan creating their Godzilla crossover have finally appeared.
Nissan has just confirmed the production of their super-crossover concoction of a GT-R's powertrain and a Nissan Juke's body. Though some might scoff at the unholy union between a run-of-the-line crossover and a supercar, the new Juke-R promises to put out plenty of power to silence any skeptics. The new Juke-R is currently under development and is expected to start testing in November around their production facility.
Nissan has said their crossover will feature some flared wheel arches, redesigns on the front and rear bumpers and a bespoke split rear wing. The GT-R's infamous 3.8-liter biturbo V6 will put out 480hp for the innovative vehicle. "Juke lends itself perfectly to a sports derivative and Juke-R explores that territory. Equally at home on road and track, Juke-R showcases two of the most exciting cars in our range and highlights the technical innovation that drives Nissan. This car will more than live up to the dynamic driving experience we engineer into all our cars," said Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Nissan in Europe Paul Willcox.
The Nissan Juke-R is a one-off and will not enter production. The term 'one-off' is a bit loose in this regard, as two versions of the crossover will be produced. One Juke-R will be in left-hand-drive, the other in right-hand-drive.
