The Nissan Juke-R is arguably one of the most intriguing cars on the planet. Matching that quirky look with an aerodynamic package and the Nissan GT-R’s engine can do that. Suffice to say, the Juke-R’s existence owes itself to the Nissan supercar.

So what happens when you put one against the other? Auto Express went to the Bedford Autodrome to find out the answer.

While we certainly won’t disillusion anybody to think that the heavier and less powerful Juke-R can actually match wits with the GT-R, the video does have some interesting bits of information about both cars that we didn’t know about before.

What we do know is that the Juke-R comes packed with a 3.8-liter V8 engine that develops 480 horsepower with a 0-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 171 mph. Compare that to the Nissan GT-R and its 3.8-liter V8 engine that produces 542 horsepower with a 0-60 mph of just 2.72 seconds, and there’s no question which one comes out on top.

Check out the video of the Nissan GT-R and the Nissan Juke-R get put through their paces.

Rhian seems like TopSpeed’s corrector. smiley Are the facts accurate? If they are, then this Juke-R is another addition to Nissan’s powerful innovations.

I just heard it on the radio that "Clearance Auto" offers auto car insurance for less than $1 a day for drivers, any one aware of this ? have anyone purchased insurance through them. I did search for them and found them online.
