The Nissan Juke-R is ANGRY

The world’s first audio clip of Nissan’s ridiculous 480bhp one-off monster hits the web

There was more good news for fans of oddly-shaped, monstrously-engined crossover SUVs today, as Nissan unveiled official images and some sound of its oddly-shaped, monstrously-engined Juke-R.

And by the sounds of it, somebody has said mean things to it. Because it sounds kind of angry.

You can hear for yourself below, but before your synapses get sponged by the majesty of internal combustion, some stats. The Nissan Juke-R is a one-off (they're building two, technically), powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo engine pinched from the Nissan GT-R. That's 480bhp, and many, many torques.

It's also stolen the GT-R's four-wheel-drive and suspension, and Nissan has kindly flared the arches, fitted not inconsiderable air ducting and venting capacity, twin exhausts, some GT-R-spec dials and two race seats.

We know that most of you like it, because you told us so repeatedly last time we reported on this piece of Japanese crossover insanity. So now listen to it.

(You'll have to sit through some music from the 'dub-steppery' genre, or something, so if you really can't wait, skip to around 52s)

Now share it...
