The 188hp turbo Juke gets a transformation that would impress Optimus Prime.

The Juke R is one of those engineering exercises that don’t happen as often as they used to. It’s too bad because these “what if” questions can lead to awesome answers. Nissan’s European Technology Center and RML Racing are the constituents behind this edgy project that endeavors to see what happens when the heart of a GT-R is grafted into the svelte framework of a compact crossover.

No stranger to boost, the 188hp turbo Juke gets a transformation that would impress Optimus Prime, namely the engine and tire drivetrain of the 480hp Nissan GT-R. The GT-R’s aura is also self evident in the cockpit, where the team installed the GT-R’s trick LCD center console control center with numerous gauges and controls. Two Juke Rs have been built and they are fully street-legal propositions that were unveiled at a press event in Spain. For more info, the Juke R has a Facebook page with about 30,000 likes.
