The best kind of car tuning is the kind of car tuning that elevates a regular-looking car to hero status. We’re talking Viper V10-engined PT Cruisers, and ultra-turboed Merc drift wagons. Or, in this case, a 700bhp+ Nissan Juke. Instead of shelling out £400,000 for a ‘standard’ Nissan Juke-R, Russian tuning house Shpilli Villi Engineering (seriously) built its own ultra-Juke. The template is the same as a Juke-R: swapping in a GT-R’s 3.8-litre bi-turbo V6, twin-clutch gearbox and all-wheel drive.
So The Nissan Juke-R goes up against a Ferrari 599 GTO and a Bugatti Veyron and almost shatters both of them. This crossover literally will keep you on the edge of your seats.
Nissan Juke R:
Shpilli Villi has only built a one-of model and it’s downright ignorant. This custom-built Juke-R features the GT-R ’s 3.8-liter V-6 engine, but Shpilli Villi fitted it with a pair of HKS turbochargers and what sounds to us like the GT-R’s transmission and driveline too. This is good for a whopping 700-plus horsepower on regular pump gas or over 800 ponies when you manage to get a little 109-octane petrol in it.
