    The insane automotive concoction that is the Juke R has been doing its thing, beating the doors off supercars, or at the very least giving them a run for their collective money. If you recall, this Nissan creation may have the body of a nimble runabout crossover, but it rides on a hacked-up GT-R ...

    There's something about the boffins over at Nissan – particularly those working at its racing headquarters in the UK. We're not quite sure what it is. Oh, right: they're bonkers. Absolutely off their rockers, in the best way possible. How else would you explain the decision to take an ...

    It's a rare thing, but every now and then, our automotive wishes come true. Nissan has announced that it will produce the heinous Juke-R in very limited numbers after a warm reception in Dubai.

    Video: Nissan releases official footage of Juke-R supercar street race in Dubai
    1328031120

    When is a Nissan Juke not a Nissan Juke? When it's the 480-horsepower, Godzilla-powered Juke-R, that's when. Then it's a supercar-beater. And to prove the point, Nissan UK took its one-off super-crossover down to Dubai for a little street racing action. So what did Nissan pit its Juke-R against? ...

    1326311880

    The Nissan Juke R is a gaggle of impressive numbers: 1,540 hours and 22 weeks of development time, 11 videos of its development, several upset bosses, 480 GT-R-derived horsepower and 428 pound-feet – and to that group we can add a 3.7-second 0-to-60 time and a top speed of 160 miles per ...

    Fox Marketing developing 400-hp Nissan Juke S
    1325806260

    The Nissan Juke R concept may have sought to define the high-performance compact crossover, but what happens when you don't have a million-dollar budget, Nissan UK's engineering talent and a spare GT-R lying around? You build your own. And that's what Fox Marketing is doing. Well, almost... The ...

    Video: Nissan builds the body in seventh Juke-R clip
    1321662540

    Sure, the idea behind the Nissan Juke-R project was to squeeze a GT-R powertrain into a Juke bodyshell. But you didn't think they'd just leave the exterior styling alone to look like a stock example of the little five-door, did you? Of course not. In the seventh installment of the Juke-R's ...

    The crack team of engineers that Nissan put to task on building the Juke-R prototype worked hard on their assignment, and have taken us along every step of the way.

    Video: Nissan highlights unique challenges of Juke-R's drivetrain
    1320345000

    Most all-wheel-drive vehicles – say, a mass-market crossover like the Nissan Juke, for example – are fairly straightforward in their setup. With the engine and transmission up front, one driveshaft goes to the front wheels and another to the back. But that's not always the case with ...

    1319662560

    You don't simply shoehorn in a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 where a 1.6-liter inline-four used to be. It takes a lot of reconfiguring, as the team at Nissan found in building the segment-busting Juke-R. Not only did they have to fit in a bigger engine – removing the bulkhead altogether and ...

    Official: 520-hp Nissan Juke-R takes shape [w/video]
    1317736620

    It's hard not to love Nissan right now. The company has shown more testicular fortitude over the past 12 months than nearly every other mainstream automaker combined with additions like the Murano Crosscabriolet and the Nissan Juke.
