Nissan Juke-R: GT-R Drivetrain

I stand corrected. It looks like the VR38DETT powered Nissan Juke is a real Nissan Europe project. They are building two cars one left hand drive, and one right hand drive.  The Juke-R's are being developed for Nissan by RML with input from Nissan Technical Centre for Europe (NTC-E). VR38DETT Powered, with the GR6 transaxle. The questions would be how much the car will end up weighing.  Will it be more or less than a GT-R?

  • Juke and GT-R brought together to create the ultimate compact crossover
  • One-off concept to test the public’s reaction to a seriously sporty Juke
  • Underlines the compact crossover’s fun factor
  • Fully road legal with GT-R drive train
  • Developed for Nissan by RML with input from Nissan Technical Centre for Europe (NTC-E)
  • Car currently in development; expected to complete first tests in November

Under the hood is a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine adopted directly from Nissan’s flagship supercar. Under the floor hides the GT-R’s six-speed transaxle, with the front and rear ends joined by a modified GT-R 4WD driveline and prop shaft, while chunky 20-inch RAYS forged alloy rims fill each wheel arch.
