Video: Nissan Juke-R Showcases Supercar Killer Potential

In a street battle against a Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari 458 and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, a Nissan Juke-R comes out on top.

Reports of the Nissan Juke-R being wickedly fast are nothing new, but seeing it in action against a trio of supercars puts things in perspective. Factors such as location and driver need to be taken into consideration, so let's deal with that first. As part of a promotional event, the race took place at a tightly designed street track in Dubai on the sidelines of the 24-Hour Endurance Race, where the lovechild of a Juke and GT-R was the official pace car.

Behind the wheel of the Juke-R was Spaniard Lucas Ordonez, winner of the 2008 PlayStation GT Academy competition.

Kiwi and professional racecar driver Christian Vann was sat in the Lamborghini (which finished second), while Michael Mallock, a professional race driver from Britain was in charge of the Mercedes. The driver of the Ferrari remains a mystery. Unfortunately the caliber of the video does not match that of the driving, but it's good enough to see that the Juke-R is indisputably a supercar killer.
