Hold on tight. The new Nissan Juke-R will be faster than the speed of light. It will make the Starship Enterprise look like an old tractor, and terrify little old ladies. But why? This one-off technical study will be powered by the Nissan GT-R's 3.8-litre V6 twin- turbo engine. Oh my! That thing produces a staggering 480bhp. The effect on the pint- sized Juke-R will be profound. The race to 62mph will take 4 seconds and this compact crossover will charge to a mighty 170mph. That is a higher top speed than the Porsche Boxter, Lotus Elise, and Morgan Roadster. Perhaps it could out-accelerate Concorde too.

This compact rocket - which is nicknamed the Super-Juke - will have four-wheel-drive to transfer its monstrous power to the tarmac. It will also have a lowered, stiffened, chassis and an extremely aggressive posture. So, brace yourself for the in-your-face carbon- fibre body-kit. Admire the split rear wing, and gaze in awe at the bonnet's large air-vents. These will suck-up enough air to make the world struggle for breath. What a contrast to the entry-level Juke that produces 108bhp. Perhaps we should start a petition to get the Juke-R launched as a production vehicle. I suspect it would sell quicker than booze to students.
