The concept of the 545-horsepower Nissan Juke-R that stuffs the drivetrain of the GT-R into a compact crossover is already insane, but Russian company Shpilli Villi Engineering has taken things even further with their own crazy riff on the idea. Its version tunes the engine up to a claimed 800 horsepower, plus a shot of nitrous for an extra 200 hp to put it (way) over the top. Naturally, a number of other upgrades have been exacted to try and keep the custom Juke's shiny side up and the driveline internals from rearranging themselves. Those changes include a beefed-up switchable all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive layout and revised suspension.

Last year, you may recall that we saw an earlier version of Shpilli Villi Engineering's insanity testing with a mere 700 hp in a one-mile, standing drag race against a Bugatti Veyron. Its Juke-R lost, but by less than a hundredth of a second. Now, owner and racer Vladimir Ulanov has brought this madness to the Nürburgring Nordschleife to see how it does around a damp lap of the famous track.

It looks like 800 hp and a moist track might be almost too much for this Juke to handle, because Ulanov gets very loose at several points during the lap. Understandably, his passenger seems suitably impressed (and possibly a little freaked out) at the end. See what you think of this craziness by watching the video.
