The Juke-R is what happens when junior 4x4 and senior supercar get jiggy. Think of it as a cross-fertilisation programme in which GM crops and an agricultural laboratory have been substituted for non-GM cars and a professional racing outfit's, uh, non-laboratory. The cut 'n' shut is broadly horizontal, the Juke's top half plonked on the GT-R's bottom. That sounds a straightforward operation, but, in reality, it's anything but.
