Video: Nissan’s Juke-R terrorizes supercars in Dubai

When the Nissan Juke-R first surfaced, some labeled it as a publicity stunt. “Why squeeze the Skyline GT-R’s 480hp engine into a Juke” was what they probably said to themselves. Nissan’s answer to the doubters: show that their Godzilla crossover could take on the likes of Lamborghini and Ferrari.

Since the Juke-R debuted in Dubai at the Dunlop 24 Hours race, Nissan decided to unleash it against a few supercars at a little autocross circuit setup near a marina in the emirate. How did it do? Your answer is in the video after the jump.

    All I know guys is that I love this car! It may not be pretty, but the fact that it has supercar-competing power concealed under its beasty bodywork makes it quite tasty šŸ™‚

    Beautiful “sleeper” … I don’t think the other drivers (super cars) were putting in as much effort though…
