    Thread: Is the GTR Powered "Super Juke" or a super joke

      Because then it wouldn't be outrageous as those vehicles already weigh as much or more than a GT-R......might as well gut a GT-R and call it a day.

      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

      If that's an inline 4, then a V6 shouldn't take up more length? (it's longitudinal, correct?)

      I4 =
      0000

      V6 =
      000
      000

      Unless I'm looking at a V4?

      I have to say, this has me more excited about a car than ive been for in a while. Even if this doesnt happen, i love it when the engineers just get to do crazy experiments and pretty much say 'f' you to the MBA's.

      No one said anything about the car being for sale. The rumor is that it will be a one-off for demonstration purposes if it gets built at all.

      Huh?

      Read the article; it says "one-off", not "for sale to the public".

      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.

      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).

      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.
