Nissan Juke-R project reaches completion with release of performance statistics:
Nissan has confirmed the performance statistics for Juke-R – the supercar crossover concept that combines the power and handling of the legendary GT-R with the bold design of Juke.
Created in the UK, Juke-R has been developed by Nissan and built by leading motorsports outfit RML with advice from Nissan Technical Centre Europe (NTC-E). Over a 22-week period two models have been created – one right-hand drive and one left-hand drive – with extensive performance testing now completing the final stage of the development project.
Juke-R's 485bhp 3.8l V6 twin turbo engine propels the car from a standing start to 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds, before continuing on to a top speed of 257km/h.

Sometimes it's more satisfying to bring a project to a slow boil for a chance to savour its full flavour, rather than to slap everything together quickly, particularly if this might result in compromise to the ultimate quality of the end-result.
Since our last update, most of the parts have arrived and in the meantime, 'Godzilla' has been further stripped, whipped, poked, prodded, used and abused all ways to Sunday. The mechanicals are at Espace while the shell has been primed and prepped for paint at TG2K Spray Painting Centre.

We went to check on the progress of the R32 this morning and found it hoisted up with its guts ripped out.
The view from behind gave us an unobstructed insight into the insides of Godzilla... and there are now gaps where the drive-train and the engine used to be.
