“The Juke-R has become an iconic Crossover supercar and with the launch of the latest Juke model last year, it was the natural choice to upgrade the original Juke-R with added power and even bolder styling. The Juke-R 2.0 is a perfect ‘crossover’ of the best bits of Nissan – real innovation showcasing our Crossover prowess fused with the excitement of the GT-R supercar engine.” said Nissan Europe Marketing Communications General Manager Gareth Dunsmore.

The new Nissan Juke R 2.0 is based on the updated 2014 Juke and carries some design and technical enhancements giving it an even more muscular, bolder and powerful version of its predecessor. It looks to have a new carbon fibre front and rear bumpers, larger air vents and carbon diffuser. Under the hood, there’s the GT-R Nismo’s 3.8-litre V6 twin-turbo engine that produces 600 hp and 652 Nm of torque.
