This collaboration between the Juke and the GT-R had one goal: speed. In 22 weeks, Nissan combined the two vehicles to create the Juke-R, the fastest crossover ever.

The mini-SUV city car and the supercar came together for a unique hybrid model. The bold styling of the Juke became the new home for the GT-R’s paddle-shift transmission, drivetrain, wheels, brakes, suspension and a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 supercar engine. This resulted in a machine capable of 0-100km/h in just 3.7 seconds and with a top speed of 257km/h. As a result of the limited space in dense urban areas smaller cars, that have greater functionality are being developed. The video below takes a look at the build from start to finish:
