On the Friday of FS UK 2012, the teams that had already completed all the scrutineering tasks were able to perform a parade lap around the entire Silverstone GP circuit. The pace-car for the lap happened to be the RML designed Nissan Juke-R. A Juke fitted with all the powertrain and suspension of the Nissan GT-R R35. After getting a lot of attention at the Dubai 24hr race and an unlimited offer from a respected citizen of Dubai, Nissan has decided to commence a limited production run featuring the newer 2012 GT-R R35 as a source. However ridiculous such a car may be, it’s great to see Nissan going ahead with it.
The GT-R subframe and relevant components have been adapted to the Juke unibody, so the adjustable dampers and monoblock Brembo calipers are included.
The key feature is obviously the VQ38DETT with 485hp. The production version will have more powerful 2012 ~530hp version.
