As an automotive enthusiast, you have probably seen your fair share of odd matches and vehicle comparisons. An oddity that tends to show up every once in a while, is the comparison against the infamous Nissan Juke R. The Nissan Juke R is Nissan’s 4,000-pound Frankenstein creation berthed from the GT-R’s drivetrain and force-fed V6 engine. Car and Driver is the latest outlet to pit the Juke R against a red-hot item. This time that item is the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

With the 911 GT2 RS being the most powerful road-going Porsche ever built, you would think that it demolishes the Juke R from the get-go. However, you must consider how the Juke R has so far trumped king over many exotics mainly due to its remarkable GT-R-sourced drivetrain and twin-turbo V6. Hit up the Car and Driver video below of Jethro Bovingdon to see if the Juke R’s hype is enough to take down the all-mighty Porsche.

The Nissan Juke R project has just about come to a conclusion. Ever since the conception of the idea of merging the drivetrain of the Nissan GT-R with the Juke, Nissan engineers have been hard at work creating what will probably the fastest compact crossover vehicle around.

The latest videos from Nissan (below) reveals the final touches and testing of the Juke R demonstrating how the GT-R’s powerplant can work in harmony at the heart of a compact crossover vehicle. If Nissan plans to build this thing, we are sure all the marketing department has to do to win over enthusiasts is mention the Juke-R is essentially a GT-R masked under the Juke’s body. Maybe they can call it a new-age “sleeper”.

What we think will be the fastest crossover vehicle in the world to come directly from a major automotive manufacturer, is slated to start testing as early as the end of this month. The Juke-R concept has come to full light revealing a full aerodynamic body kit, 20-inch forged alloy wheels, racing seats, GT-R steering wheel, a roll cage and revised instrumentation. With a face only a mother could love, the Juke-R may actually appeal to the Nissan enthusiast who lacks perfect 20/20 vision but enjoys a thrill ride.

As you suspected, the Nissan GT-R’s 3.8-liter engine will power the Juke-R with horsepower figures said to be 480 hp or more. After testing commences, we will expect to see performance figures to be released so we can see how fast the GT-R’s little Juke sibling really is.

For now, check out the latest build images, promotional video and raw footage videos of the Juke-R.
