Ever wondered what would happen if the Nissan GT-R and the Nissan Juke would be left alone in a garage? Well, it seems that Nissan’s European division has: we’d end up with a 480hp Juke!

Company sources have told Jalopnik that Nissan is working on an extreme incarnation of the Juke, with the vehicle receiving a 480 hp engine (the output of the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 that the R35 GT-R debuted with - this is why we expect Godzilla to be the donor car), as well as being put on a diet, which will include the car eating out its own interior.
Since the source mentioned that the Godzilla-ed Juke will be able to play the 0 to 60 mph game in less than four seconds, we can assume that it will also get the supercar’s intelligent ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system.
This will be no sleeper, as the vehicle will also come with multiple aerodynamic modification, that will allow it to be instantly recognised. The project is expected to debut later this year, so you’d better start preparing for it.
All this sounds extremely fun, but isn't sharing the GT-R engine a sacrilege?
