Nissan Roll Racing Challenge - GT-R Nismo vs Juke-R 2.0So, you want the convenience of a small crossover SUV with the performance of what might arguably be the baddest Japanese sports car ever made? You need space for the wife, kids, and all their gear and you want the acceleration and handling characteristics of a high-priced sports car but you probably think this is impossible. Not so fast – check out this video of the new Nissan Juke-R 2.0 duking it out with the Nissan flagship GT-R – and yes, it is for real.

Dissatisfied with the 485hp mill in the original Juke-R, our friends at Nissan have opted to go with a full-blown GT-R Nismo engine, instead. The Juke-R 2.0 now produces 591hp and 485 lb.-ft. of torque (the same as the GT-R Nismo). This turns out to be a very close race, with the outcome decided solely by driving skill and experience (Ha! Ha!).
