2011 Nissan Juke-R Concept
Dubbed the world's fastest crossover, Nissan Juke-R is a unique concept car that combines the power, speed and handling of Nissan's flagship GT-R sports car with the bold, exciting design of the Juke crossover model. Images and video reflect the thought-provoking, energetic style of this urban rebel crossover, while its foreboding matt black finish enhances the car's rebellious personality. The car's unique, impactful styling places Juke's curves and lines over GT-R's 3.8-litre engine, drivetrain and suspension, making Nissan Juke-R the most testosterone-packed compact crossover in the world. It is a force to be reckoned with not only in performance but also in its bold and menacing design. Large, provocative vents in the front bumper provide cooling for the Nissan Juke-R's twin turbo V6 engine, while subtle submerged ducts in the bonnet help draw air through the engine bay. Flared wheel arches cover the GT-R's 20-inch RAYS forged alloy wheels to merge with a new sculpted skirting. At the back of the car a dynamic split rear wing provides the supercar crossover with down-force, while twin pentagonal Exhausts emit the GT-R's evocative engine note. Inside, the Juke's motorcycle-inspired console is at the centre of a modified interior cabin fitted out to go racing complete with twin race seats, full race harness and a race-spec roll cage. GT-R steering wheel, pedals, dials and 7-inch touch-screen display are built into a modified version of Juke's dashboard. Officially announced by Nissan Europe in October 2011, Nissan Juke-R is not a production car but a special, road legal concept car. Two versions of the Nissan Juke-R are being created - one in left-hand-drive and one in right-hand-drive. Nissan Juke-R will go into testing in late November 2011 before it's unleashed on the world to take on the urban playground.

Nissan Juke Nismo Concept
Nissan Motor reveales a bold new future for its Nismo performance arm. One of the undoubted stars of the Tokyo Motor Show is the Nissan Juke Nismo, an idea of how a premium sports version of the hugely successful compact crossover could look





2017 Nissan JUKE NISMO RS - Style and Dynamic Performance (215 hp)
2017 Nissan JUKE NISMO RS - Drive, Interior and Exterior. - JUKE NISMO RS features 215 horsepower, 210 lb-ft of torque and Helical Limited-Slip Differential (manual transmission), along with added structural rigidity and sport brakes - JUKE NISMO and JUKE NISMO RS include 18-inch NISMO aluminum-alloy wheels, NISMO bodywork with red NISMO exterior accents, and racing-inspired interior The JUKE NISMO RS comes complete from the factory with more horsepower and more attitude than any other JUKE. This ultimate JUKE includes unique engine, suspension, steering and brake tuning enhancements (versus the JUKE NISMO and standard JUKE models). The JUKE NISMO RS starts with the standard JUKE inline 4-cylinder 1.6-liter DOHC aluminum-alloy Direct Injection Gasoline (DIGÔ) turbocharged engine and goes from there. While the base engine is rated at 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque (JUKE S, SV, SL and NISMO grades), the JUKE NISMO RS increases the engine's performance to 215 horsepower (at 6,000 rpm) and 210 lb-ft of torque (from 3,600 to 4,800 rpm) for the 6-speed manual transmission-equipped front-wheel drive model. The JUKE NISMO RS AWD with Xtronic transmission is rated at 211 horsepower (at 6,000 rpm) and 184 lb-ft of torque (from 2,400 to 6,000 rpm). Changes to the engine to create the higher power and torque figures include optimized engine control (ECU) settings and a revised Exhaust system with a larger main tube diameter and revised baffling. The JUKE NISMO RS's Exhaust has also been tuned to create a highly visceral sound, worthy of its racing-inspired roots. The Exhaust system is capped by a chromed tailpipe finisher. The engine's connecting rod durability has also been enhanced for use with higher torque settings with the manual transmission, along with a strengthened clutch cover and dual mass flywheel. The high capacity 6-speed manual used in the JUKE NISMO RS is a different transmission than available in the JUKE NISMO manual transmission model and uses an optimized gear set and a shorter final drive ratio (4.428:1 NISMO RS, 3.933:1 NISMO) for quicker acceleration. Manual transmission-equipped NISMO RS models also offer a standard helical-geared Limited-Slip Differential (LSD) to direct more power to the front wheel with the most traction, helping maintain acceleration during cornering. It also helps reduce torque steer, adding to the sense of driving excitement. All-Wheel Drive JUKE NISMO RS models also offer improved acceleration and a sportier driving feel. With its steering column-mounted paddle shifters, NISMO RS AWD's Xtronic transmission utilizes technology found in the Nissan Maxima sports sedan for an available manual feel. The Xtronic's manual mode offers eight-step "gearing," versus the JUKE NISMO Xtronic's seven and base JUKE Xtronic's six steps. In addition, the advanced torque vectoring AWD system has been specially tuned for the NISMO RS's increased active cornering, helping provide better line control through corners. The system – standard in all JUKE AWD models – is designed to limit understeer by increasing torque to the outside rear wheel, helping the car follow its intended course, while enhancing agility, giving the JUKE NISMO exceptional ride comfort and handling in spite of its higher ground clearance when compared to compact cars. Torque can be split up to a maximum of 50:50 front to rear, as well as shifted from side-to-side across the rear axle, up to 50 percent per wheel. Information collected by various sources (measuring wheel speed, steering angle, yaw rate and lateral G-force) is interpreted to anticipate the driver's intention. System actions are relayed to the driver via a real-time graphic display on the instrument panel depicting the torque distribution under all conditions. Also adding a significant Boost to JUKE NISMO RS's engaging driving dynamics is a series of special body and chassis reinforcements designed to help increase overall rigidity. The additional reinforcements and fixing points are used primarily to increase steering precision and quicker response of the NISMO RS (versus the JUKE NISMO). In addition, the suspension and steering have been specially tuned to provide a more exciting and agile driving feel (versus non-RS models) without compromising ride comfort and noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). Spring rates and damping force have been retuned and the front suspension link reinforced to enhance steering feel and response. The NISMO RS's suspension has also been lowered slightly (versus non-NISMO JUKE models), reducing the gap between the tires and wheelwells for a cleaner appearance and improved aerodynamics. An independent MacPherson strut front suspension and torsion beam rear suspension are utilized on FWD models, while JUKE NISMO and NISMO RS AWD models offer a multi-link rear suspension design. A cradle-type front subframe enhances lateral stiffness of the assembly. Front and rear stabilizer bars are standard on all models.
