We are quite aware of the fact that the Nissan Juke-R has the same chance of appearing in Nissan’s lineup as the Prowler has a chance to come back into Chrysler’s stable of vehicles. Despite its rarity and the slim chance it’ll ever see production, there are more sightings of the satin black Juke-R than there are of Bigfoot. The latest sighting shows this twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6-powered crossover SUV tearing up Goodwood Hill.

The Nissan GT-R simply sounds awesome and not much else can compete with it from a pure sound standpoint. Well, after viewing the video of the Juke-R accelerating through Goodwood hill, we are convinced that this supercrossover is right up there with the GT-R. You are likely thinking “of course it sounds as good as the GT-R, it has the same engine.” For some reason, the Juke-R has a different sound than the GT-R does. This could quite possibly be due to the lack of sound insulation, but you sure can hear the 3.8-liter’s two turbochargers whistling away more in the Juke-R.

There is also something extra in the exhaust note that the Juke-R emits. It just sounds more like a racecar than the GT-R. Don’t get me wrong, we love the GT-R, but we would prefer the Juke-R to dilly dally around town in… Well, dilly dallying at a rather high speed, that is.
