Nissan Juke-R testing at Silverstone
The Nissan Juke R – the love child of the Juke and the GT-R – has been out testing at Silverstone. We have video.
Nissan teased interminably with the build and development of the Juke-R – the bonkers cross between the funky Juke and Godzilla. But they finally revealed a photo and video last month.
Just two Juke-Rs have been built (one LHD, one RHD) for Nissan to evaluate the car and decide if they want to make a production version of the Juke-R. Which of course they will, even if it will be in small numbers at silly prices.
But now there are a pair of real Juke-R cars to play with, Nissan has had a bit of a driving event for the Juke R at Silverstone to let a handful of car media have a little play with the high-riding bonkers Juke-R. And one French media mob have already churned out a video.
The day that Caradisiac got to play with the Juke-R was a typically Silverstone day, with heavy cloud and incessant drizzle, so we’re sure our French friends were grateful the Juke-R’s 480bhp was driven through all four wheels. There seems to be plenty of urgency about the Juke-R – as you would expect – even if the show isn’t the most blistering we’ve seen on track.
But now Caradisiac has jumped the gun with their version of the Juke-R at Silverstone it seems likely Nissan won’t be far behind.
