Nissan Juke-R is prepared for its heart transplant: VideoWed, 19 Oct 2011
Nissan, in its quest to make the craziest compact car in the world, has released another video of the Nissan GT-R-to-Juke engine transplant.
The video shows some of the frame cutting that needed to be done to fit the twin-turbocharged V6 into the Juke small crossover, along with the roll cage being welded in. Jigs are also attached to keep the frame straight while the work is going on.
In addition to the engine, the Juke-R gets the suspension, brakes and steering components of the GT-R, all of which need new connecting points.
The next step? Dropping in the engine. You know we'll stay tuned.
