The Godzilla has been placed against the world’s first “supercar crossover”, but which is faster after all?
The guys from Autocar have recently brought together two hot vehicles made by Nissan, the brand new Juke-R 2.0 and the iconic GT-R for an epic drag race. But is the Juke really up for the challenge or can the GT-R keep up with it? Well, this is a question answered in the video posted below, so, petrol heads, take a seat, scroll down and click the play button in order to find out.
The Nissan GT-R has been in production for almost 8 years and has been first introduced in Japan, back in 2007, as a successor for the Skyline GT-R. The Godzilla is coming in a 2-door 2+2 coupe body style and it has a front engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The model has been designed by Shiro Nakamura and it has been slightly upgraded every year. All examples have the 3.8 liter twin turbo V6 engine under their hoods, connected to the 6-speed dual clutch transmission.
The Nissan Juke-R 2.0 on the other hand has been unveiled earlier this year and it has a lot of carbon fiber added to it, along with the above mentioned 3.8 liter twin turbo V6 engine. This has 600 HP (441 kW) and 652 Nm (481 lb-ft) of torque, allowing it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds. The Juke-R 2.0 will be offered for sale soon but no pricing details have been announced at this point.
