Nissan Juke GT-R

At first I'd like to apologize for not updating my blog in last three weeks or so. I haven't given up, but my laptop crashed and I had to buy a new one. And I've got a big nasty car for you today.

   Nissan Europe decided that Juke, rather strange looking crossover (they should have named it Joke in the first place...), needs more power. And they have overdone it as usual. How much? A lot! They've taken almost all parts from Nissan GT-R and put it into this little car your mum would use to take you to your football session. Including the engine - twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 producing 520 horsepower. OH MY GOD!

The new insane Juke has 20 inch forged wheels, racing seats with 5-point harnesses and a rollcage instead of the back seats. It isn't as practical as the original, but its 'fast and furious'! 0-100 km/h takes less than 4 seconds and it maxes out at 270 km/h ... in a crossover! Damn.
