With all the buzz about the Nissan Juke this past year, the world premiere for the Nissan Juke Nismo edition should have fans at the edge of their seats. Especially since the debut will take place at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race from June 13th through the 17th. The concept was first seen on display at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, and this performance model will be the first to enter production in a series of new Nissan Nismo cars.

Ever since Nissan announced the plans for the Juke-R, we have seen this matte black Juke quite often since it received the same engine as the Nissan GTR. Check out the video below for a preview of what the launch control looks and sounds like on the Nissan Juke-R while it accelerates through Goodwood. While the Juke-R has the same powerplant as the GTR with the 3.8-liter twin turbos, the cars do sound a little different. We’re guessing this is from the exhaust system being shorter in length overall, but judge for yourself in the Nissan Juke-R acceleration video.
Fox Marketing has announced their plans to tune the Nissan Juke crossover which has become popular among tuning companies this past year. Even Nissan has announced a Super Juke-R version they are currently working on that will carry the same twin turbo V6 engine and all-wheel-drive platform as the Nissan GTR super car. While Fox Marketing waits out the arrival of the Nissan Juke-R they plan to customize the original 1.6-liter engine with a large turbo kit to increase the power up to 400 HP.
We never saw this one coming, but with all the positive results of the Nissan Juke sales, Nissan has announced plans of a Super Juke. It is rumored to hold a 480 horsepower engine, which would most likely be the same 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 found in the Nissan GTR. If so, this slightly de-tuned Super Juke will still blow the tops off of any regular Nissan Juke tuning projects. Just check out the official sketch that hit the web this past week, showing a Nissan Juke sporting a new wide body kit, Nissan GT-R style alloy wheels, hood vents similar to the GT-R, and a rear wing.
The all new Nissan Juke is definitely a unique car, so the tuning firm Impul from Japan decided to add some extra styling and performance for the already great selling model. This Nissan Juke tuning kit starts out with a new front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser, and large rear wing. Additional aesthetically pleasing mods include the redesigned front grill, decals, and mirror trim. Under the hood, Impul updated the computer software for both the non-turbo and turbocharged versions of the Nissan Juke 1.6-liter 4-cylinder powerplant.
