GT-R Nismo vs Nissan Juke-R 2.0

August 13, 2015

A couple of weeks ago we thought the 542bhp Jaguar F-Type AWD might just have enough power to de-throne the internet’s darling Nissan GT-R. It didn’t.

We’ve gone away scratched our heads and decided this time to play a wildcard, with the Juke-R 2.0.

Disatisfied with the 485bhp V6 in the original Juke-R, Nissan has this time used a Nismo engine from the GT-R production line and bolted it in to this 2.0, meaning it now produces the same 591bhp and 485lb ft of torque as the GT-R Nismo. This is your pound for pound fight of the year.

In the right corner, at the helm of the Juke-R 2.0 we have Matt Prior, and in the left corner, none other than Jann Mardenborough, Nissans GT Academy winner.
