The Details:

  • DragTimes, a Russian YouTube channel and website dedicated to drag/street racing the fastest cars in the world, hosts video

  • Nissan Juke R (700hp) obliterates Ferrari 599 GTO (670hp) in 1-mile drag

  • Nissan Juke R beats Bugatti Veyron (1001hp) in ¼ mile and loses by inches in the mile

  • 2005 hp Underground Racing Lamborghini Gallardo beats tuned Juke R

To the uninformed, lining up against the somewhat unassuming GT-R powered Nissan Juke R in a supercar would seem like an open and shut case at a mile-long drag strip. Think again. As shown in the attached video, a stock 670 hp Ferrari 599 GTO gets sent home with its head down by a 700 hp Nissan Juke R. To confirm its wild performance, a Juke R then comes inches away from beating a 1001 hp Bugatti Veyron at the same closed stretch of pavement.

How is this possible? Could it be driver error at the supercar end? Is the featured Juke R in the videos modified? The latter questions can be simply answered as yes.
The Juke R comes stock with a 3.8L twin-turbo DOHC 24-valve V6 that produces 480 hp and 434 lb-ft of torque – the featured Juke produces 700 hp, according to DragTimes. To further compare a stock-to-tuned Juke R consider Motor Trend’s Exclusive First Test, which showed a stock 3,981 lbs. (est.) Juke R run the quarter-mile in 11.9 seconds at 117.5 mph. During the Bugatti race, the featured Juke R ran the quarter in 10.6 seconds at 131.6 mph.

As expected, a 2005 hp Lamborghini Gallardo built by Underground Racing (UGR) destroys the same Juke R in the final match up of the video. Extreme horsepower of the UGR-built Gallardo platform has proven time and time again to be the king of the street drag circuit – web videos showing such result are many.

All-wheel drive and GT-R power wrapped into an extremely agile mega-crossover created one killer limited-production Nissan. Unfortunately, the Juke R is not available in the United States. The compact JDM weapon can though be spotted in numerous online videos ruling the roads wherever it finds an international race.

Both videos were put on by DragTimes, a well-known Russian YouTube and web channel dedicated to pitting extreme examples of built to stock supercars, exotics and tuners against one another on the street or at the drag strip. Famous for past viral street racing videos that featured wealthy tuners racing on Russian freeways, it now has almost 500,000 subscribers and 235,500,664 video views.
