2011 Nissan Juke-R Concept

Since it’s unveiling, the 2011 Nissan Juke-R has been handed the title ‘World’s fastest crossover’.

The Juke-R concept car is unique in the sense that it has successfully combined the speed, power, handling and performance of Nissan’s GT-R flagship sports car model with the bold and exciting Juke crossover.


The Nissan Juke-R is truly deserving of the ‘fastest crossover’ title due to its ability to accelerate from 0-100kmph (62mph) in 3.7 seconds and continue upwards to the top speed of 257 kph. The impressive 3.8 liter twin turbo V6 engine is what makes this feat possible.

What is perhaps more impressive is that the Nissan Juke-R handles just like a supercar – the drive-train and suspension from the GT-R model have been successfully integrated into the Juke-R body. Despite the capability of high speeds in the new Juke-R, the weight remains lower and the top speed remains higher in the GT-R.

The weight in the Juke-R has been increased since the Juke body has had to have extra chassis reinforcement to be able to successfully integrate Nissan supercar components; however, the Nissan Juke-R is still the fastest crossover available.

The unique styling of the Juke-R crossover is also worthy of commendation, the bold styling, flared wheel arches, matte black finish and aggressive lines and curves certainly makes the Juke-R a powerful and menacing force on the road – both in terms of performance and design.

Interior & Exterior

The Juke-R interior is just as impressive, the console is motorcycle-inspired and is placed in the center of the modified cabin that has been fully fitted with race seats, race harness and roll cage that all meet race-specifications. GT-R components such as the steering wheel, dials, touch screen display and pedals have all been built into a modified Juke dashboard.

Despite all the modifications to the components of the Juke, the physical dimensions of the Juke remain similar to the original Juke model. The vehicle is the same height and length and it also features the same wheelbase dimensions: only the width of the car has increased.
