      One off? Not available to public??

      Hey Nissan, how about just giving us a Juke that looks like that with 25 more hp, and a manual transmission option!!!

      You do have a MT option, just not with AWD.

      If it isn't drive-able, then it would be a completely pointless exercise.

      On the other hand, Nissan is pretty good a pissing people off with funky cars.

      The Juke is a better choice because it looks funky and weighs considerably less to begin with....

      A Cube would have been another interesting idea....or a GT-R powered Quest with a manual gearbox and RWD
      It would make a nice M3, M5 destroyer though if they did put the engine in a G37, or M37.

      I hope they build it, just so the guys at Top Gear can get their hand son it. (The UK show...not us).

      Quote Originally Posted by Auto Evolution
      Last week, rumors about Nissan creating a one-off Juke with the tech side of the GT-R flooded the web, generating a wave of positive response. Now, Nissan is confirming the Juke-R concept,with the company probably set to use this wild one-off to test the public’s reaction in order to build a potential production performance version of the Juke.

      The concept, a one-off, street-legal development developed by Nissan and motorsports company RML, has ditched the 1.5- and 1.6-liter usual Juke engines and borrowed the 3.8-liter twin-turbo from the GT-R, along with a modified version of the supercar’s all-wheel-drive system. At the back, we also get the GT-R’s transaxle, while the connection to the road is provided via 20-inch Rays forged alloy rims.

      GT-R goodies have also made their way into the cabin, where we find the gauges, dials and 7-inch LCD display that belong to Godzilla. The Juke’s center console has kept its place, but the rest of the interior has been adapted for the tack, receiving two bucket seats and a roll cage.

      And don’t think that this will be a sleeper: the crossover gets beefy wheel arches, redesigned front and rear fascias and a split rear wing. Two units of the concept will be built, in order for it to offer both left- and right-hand drive. The project is expected to be in running condition next month, when engineers will start dynamic tests.

      Funny how everybody gripes about the front but says nothing about the rear (which is the end I'd make changes to).

      Can't wait to see the final product. Just imagine a GTR with about 500 lbs less, though it remains to be seen if the chassis will have similar dynamics. Anyways, rumors are that if there is enough interest, Nissan might produce it in limited numbers.

      The Juke is oh so ugly but this might make it slightly more palatable.

      I didn't ask for this.

      just put the Altima's 2.5 in there, and I'd be happy. Turbo lag is nobody's friend.

      I like the Juke a lot, its one of those its so ugly and weird that I love the looks of it type of deals. Maybe its the Nissan-Renault connection cause I like the ugly french cars too, Im not sure. Never drove one though so no idea how it rides and how the interior is.

      no, that would be a vr6. Cylinders are not staggered in a conventional v6.



      Needless to say, they are going to have to cut the hell out of a juke to fit the engine, transmission, diffs and driveshafts in one.

      Depends on the angle of the V and the conrod/crank design. Some V6s do have a bit of stagger. There's a lot more in a VR6 since they're staggered such that they can share a common head. The narrower the angle, the greater the stagger.

      Good illustration:



      Nissan VQ/VR (not to be confused with Volkswagen VR) blocks:



      12V (I think) VR6:

      I think the VQ is a fine engine but a project like this deserves something more special. Also, if you're going to add that much weight, you need moAr juice.

      Now, a high-strung 3.8L VR block (sans turbos) on the other hand...

      Heck, just ditch the CVT for a DCT and I'd be happy.

      Are we talking for a production "Juke SE-R" or just in terms of this one-off?

      Realistically, they may end up simply putting the new 2.0T slated to go into the next Altima (and G?) in a salable performance Juke. (But I can still hope for a VQ.)
