Nissan Juke-R Gets GT-R Engine Transplant

We were shocked to her that Nissan had already revealed the Juke-R, a monster that combines the smallest crossover body the make with the most powerful engine from the GT-R which is a sort of supercar that your grandmother could drive.
Now, we get to see what the engineers over at RML, who put the car together, had to go through in over to mate the heart of a supercar with the stubby body of something that’s only slightly bigger than a hatchback.

The bad news is that the 3.8-liter only delivers the 480 horsepower that the GT-R had before it got a makeover. Still, that’s much more than the maximum 190 hp of the 1.6-liter turbo in a regular Juke.
