The Nissan Juke-R takes on some of the greatest vehicles on the planet.
'Nissan Juke-R: Desert Nemesis' is a film shot by award-winning director Rob Kaplan and follows Nissan's GT Academy winner Lucas Ordonez as he takes the ultimate street-sleeper to battle some of the best cars in the world in Dubai.
Last Tuesday we brought you the teaser and the full-length film, as you can see above, doesn't disappoint. Nissan's GT Academy winner Lucas Ordonez is an up-and-coming professional driver who recently finished on the podium in Le Mans, and his work with the Juke-R is impressive to say the least. The Nissan Juke-R, for those who may have forgotten, is a Juke body with the guts of the supercar-killing Nissan GT-R. It uses Godzilla's twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 to sprint from 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 160mph. You can now order one for yourself, if you feel so inclined.
Nissan has announced today that the ultimate street-sleeper will go into a limited production run, with each unit costing upwards of £125,000. You may recall that the original concept was based on the 2010 model GT-R, which packed a 478hp punch. The production Juke-R will feature the even more impressive engine and drivetrain from the 2012 GT-R. That means a 545hp Juke.
