Combining the design of the Juke SUV with the power of a GT-R, the Juke-R is claimed to be the fastest crossover on the planet. Its 3.8-liter engine boasts 545 hp, enabling top speeds of 257km/h (152mph).The limited edition uses the chassis, suspension and wheels of the Nissan GT-R 2012. The new version of the Juke-R exceeds the power of the prototype that was presented in Malaga, Spain in October 2011.Thanks to its bump in power, the Nissan Juke R favorably compares to the likes of the Porsche Carrera Turbo S (530hp) and the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG (571hp).
