592HP Nissan Juke-R 2.0 Challenges Its “Mentor” On The Drag Strip

The Nissan Juke R may be the perfect example to illustrate the expression “a wolf in sheep’s clothing”. This applies even more to the second iteration of the hardcore SUV, the Juke-R 2.0, which uses the same powertrain as the mighty Nissan GT-R Nismo.

That’s a 600PS (592hp) 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 petrol engine, for those of you who didn’t already know. To find out just how quick the funky-looking crossover is, Autocar arranged for a drag race with the donor car, the GT-R Nismo. To make it as relevant as possible, there were three runs, and you’ll probably be surprised to learn that the GT-R Nismo didn’t win all of them.

It’s very impressive to see how a high-performance powertrain can turn an average crossover into a beast able to outperform almost every other car it meets on the road and on the track. Enjoy the video!
