The Nissan Juke-R versus supercars
TG goes supercar-baiting in Dubai. In a Nissan Juke. With 478bhp. And 433lb ft of torque...

Yep, in order to negate the effects of the extra height and shorter wheelbase, the GT-R's suspension has been stiffened. Springs, dampers, even anti-roll bar have been torqued up, meaning the Juke-R rides like an iron beam.
But that's just fine, because it drives like a wrecking ball. Dense, heavy (to the tune of 1,806kg), squat, unstoppably determined. If you were to compare it to a real car, then it's the BMW X6M, of which there are quite a few about out here, but really it's so much better than that. Don't get me wrong - it's not as polished, and isn't as talented around corners as its GT-R supercoupe sibling, but, hell, can it get places quickly.
