I sense the Lamborghini close behind me, glimpse it occasionally through the roll cage in the mirror. the Ferrari and Mercedes are gaining after their slower starts, but gaining on the Gallardo, not me. According to our man on the sidelines with a stopwatch, the Juke-R posts a lap of 29.2 seconds. the 458's best is 29.5secs, and it never did get past the Lambo. the Juke wins fair and square. Nissan beats Ferrari. Wow. Initially, all I feel is relief that it's over and we got away with it. Later, it's what Nissan has created here that amuses and impresses. Which makes it even more of a shame that no more will ever be made. Unless you have several million pounds spare. In which case, it might be worth asking.
