Official video of Juke-R street race in Dubai released

Nissan has released video of a demonstration race which pits the Juke-R against a Lamborghini Gallardo, Mercedes SLS AMG and Ferrari 458 Italia around a make-shift 0.58km race course at the Dubai International Marine Club.

The demonstration race was brought about in support of the Dubai 24 Hours race in which the Juke-R was the official pace car.

Earlier this month we first reported the event with amateur footage that communicated the Juke-R's abilities well enough. Now, with this close up multiple camera footage of the track side action, as well as from a helicopter, the Juke-R's performance is even more apparent.

The Juke-R is the unholy union of a Nissan GT-R powertrain with an extensively modified Nissan Juke chassis. The all-wheel drive Juke-R produces 485 bhp (362 kW / 492 PS) and can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100kph) in just 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 160mph (257kph).

The driver of the winning Juke-R was Lucas Ordonez - winner of the inaugural Nissan GT Academy in 2008 and podium finisher in last year's Le Mans 24 Hours.

Nissan soapbox, in a special designed course to fit its capabilities, and worst of all, Nissan's desire to ridicule the other brands. C'mon Nissan, lets take it to the ring to see what happens!!!

I don't care about this. I want to know how fast can the Juke-R lap around the Nurborgring.

Why not putting Loeb's Citroën DS3 WRC against the Juke R? I would smoke it thus accounting for the same thing: Nothing.

There are watches selling about double the price of these cars, people who buy them are non "oilers". You don't hear about them because they are not your average neighbors.  If this news too much for you go check the latest skoda 5-doors good all rounder.

LOL ... man, seriously.. you sound so cheap by saying that... there are rich people everywhere, not only in the middle east. let them enjoy their money.. it is their work result it's not their problem if your not as rich as them.. and it has nothing to do with "Oil" as long as they know how to do business and keep their money well managed ;) learn how to save & spend your money.. and you will be as rich as them. :p Skodacop

Come on, this is a non-street legal concept car, build as a single unit. I can´t understand the hype about this car...
