Nissan is set to make a huge splash at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed, which is held in the United Kingdom and begins on June 25th this year. Nissan has announced that they will debut the brand spankin’ new Nissan Juke-R Nismo, the successor to the Nissan Juke-R that was unleashed on the world three years ago.
And if that last Nissan Juke-R wasn’t insane enough, this time the new and improved car comes with the Nismo label – which means one thing if you’re well-educated on the automotive industry: insane levels of performance. The Nismo division of Nissan is responsible for the ultimate supercars released by the company, such as the wicked Nismo GT-R sports car.
So, what does a Nissan Juke-R with the Nismo label entail? We can’t be completely sure just yet. But the Juke-R of a few years ago was already so beastly that we can’t help but be giddy with excitement for this car to be revealed in all of its glory.
The original Juke-R was essentially an amalgamation of a GT-R sports car and Nissan’s traditional Juke Crossover, combining muscle and speed with the bigger, less intense Juke design. This car put out 478bhp and impressive torque, with a twin-turbo V-6 engine.
The Nismo label attached to the Juke-R this time, however, means that we will see the engine and AWD tech of the Nismo GT-R. Accordingly, the Nissan Juke-R Nismo will probably feature 597bhp, 466lb-ft of torque, and a stiff suspension, while cutting out some of the excess weight from the previous iteration of the car.
Early teaser shots of the car hint at powerful, funky styling, with massive, red-trimmed air intakes and enormous, intense headlights. The spoiler and other design features from the older Juke-R will likely remain as well.
While the Nissan Juke-R Nismo won’t rival the performance of the world’s fastest cars, it will certainly be a one-of-a-kind vehicle, and for that, we can’t wait to see it.
