Here’s an unlikely drag race – pitting the mighty Bugatti Veyron against a Nissan Juke… ok, not just any Juke. Not even the Juk-R, but a MODIFIED Juke-R capable of putting out around 522kW (700bhp).
Although not officially available in any country, as only four has been made so far by the RML Groiup in the UK, the Nissan Juke-R shares most of its underpinnings with the Nissan GT-R, including its hand-built 404kW twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 engine. The built to order Juke-R rockets from 0-100km/h in 3.0 seconds in standard form, before storming to a top speed of 275km/h.
The Juke-R you see in the video has been tweaked by engineers from Shpilli Villi Engineering in St. Petersburg, Russia that churns out an impressive 522kW (700bhp)! That’s not all, Shpilli Villi Engineering offers four stages of tuning, with up to 746kW (1,000+bhp).
Although shy of the Veyron’s output, its significantly lower curb weight means the Juke-R had a better start. However, the Veyron’s extra horses eventually caught up to take an exceedingly close victory.
