    Video: Watch this 800-hp Nissan Juke-R savage the 'Ring
    1409330700

    The concept of the 545-horsepower Nissan Juke-R that stuffs the drivetrain of a GT-R into a subcompact 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 ...

    Report: Nissan Qashqai gets the Juke R treatment
    1380829500

    It would appear that we're a little behind the times on this one, but a UK-based tuner of the Nissan GT-R is creating its own take on the lustworthy Juke-R starting with the Nissan Qashqai crossover.

    Video: Nissan Juke-R pitted against Bugatti Veyron in brilliantly odd drag race
    1370881800

    The Nissan Juke-R must've been a tough car to build a business case for, yet the madcap little crossover with the heart of a GT-R is now a production reality. Admittedly, we should probably assign some quotes around "production," since the vehicle is being built on a one-by-one on-demand basis at ...

    1367607240

    The Other Brother The handler strapped into the carbon fiber race bucket next to me is the only other person outside of yours truly who looks like he thinks this is a bad idea. I've just finished situating myself in the cabin of the very first Nissan Juke-R ever constructed. There are literally ...

    1363787040

    As long as there are sacred cows, there will be heretics sharpening their knives in anticipation of the butchering. When Nissan first carved into the mighty GT-R to create the Juke-R, onlookers quickly fell into two camps: those who thought the plan was sheer genius and those who believed ...

    Video: Nissan Juke-R goes ice fishing in Norway
    1337877120

    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 ...

    1331742600

    Now that Nissan UK is finished with the dog-and-pony promotional show for the Nissan Juke-R, it's free to do what we've all been waiting for: hand it over to The Fourth Estate for proper testing. AutoExpress was the first in line, and they didn't waste the chance, pitting Faust's CUV against the ...

    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? ...

    Video: Nissan Juke-R is world's quickest crossover with 3.7s 0-60 time
    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 Juke-R clears its throat for the first time
    1321750740

    The end of the Nissan Juke-R build has come and gone. The vehicle is done. Only a lucky few were there when the 485-horsepower twin-turbo V6 borrowed from a Nissan GT-R cleared its throat for the first time. The thrills and high-fives, that wave of adrenaline that buoys dog-tired men, and 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 ...

    Video: Nissan Juke-R web build soldiers on with interior fittings
    1320850740

    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. Fitting the mechanical bits from a GT-R into the tiny Juke crossover, it turns out, has been no easy task. So with the engine and ...

    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 ...

    Video: Nissan shows us how a square peg fits in a round hole with fourth Juke-R clip
    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 ...

    The unveiling of the Nissan Juke-R prototype has been as slow and painstaking as the car's actual build. First we received initial details, a rendering and video of the project under way. Over the course of the following few weeks, Nissan continued keeping us on our toes with a series of videos ...

    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.
