Currently reading: Nissan Juke-R nears completion
The definitive styling of the 480bhp Nissan Juke-R has been revealed shortly before testing starts

The definitive styling of the hardcore, 480bhp Nissan Juke-R has been revealed by the Japanese manufacturer just days before the car starts testing.

The Nissan Juke-R combines the 3.8-litre engine, drivetrain and suspension of the Nissan GT-R supercar with the body of a Juke crossover.

These images mark the first time Nissan has shown off the finished concept car, although a rough and ready version was unveiled in Spain last month.

The Juke-R features large vents in the front bumper provide cooling for the Juke-R’s twin-turbo V6 engine, while submerged ducts in the bonnet draw air through the engine bay. Flared wheel arches cover the GT-R’s 20-inch Rays forged alloy wheels to merge with a new sculpted skirting. At the back of the car a split rear wing generates downforce. The car also gets twin pentagonal exhausts.

The Juke-R has a motorcycle-inspired console at the centre of a heavily modified cabin. The interior also boasts twin race seats, full race harness and a race-spec rollcage, as well as the GT-R’s steering wheel, pedals, dials and 7-inch touch-screen display.

Two versions of the Juke-R are being created – one in left-hand-drive and one in right-hand-drive. Testing is due to start before the end of this month.
