When Nissan UK announced that the company planned to build a design study using the body of a Juke and the running gear of GT-R, we knew the automaker's engineers had some serious work cut out for them. Now Nissan is giving the world a glimpse into exactly what it will take to bring the Juke-R to life with a series of build videos. The company isn't simply cramming a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 into the CUV and calling it a day. Instead, a donor GT-R will lend its full all-wheel-drive system and all of the tech necessary to keep the car planted on the road to the effort.

Nissan has already started by shortening the wheelbase of a standard GT-R to Juke dimensions (see above) to ensure that everything will still work once workers begin swapping floor pans. The whole project looks deliciously maniacal. Hit the jump to check out the video for yourself.
