WEST SÚSSEX, England – The birth of the Nissan JÚKE-R set a benchmark in 2011 as the world's first Crossover supercar, marrying Nissan's innovative JÚKE wîth the engine and running gear from the legendary Nissan GT-R – the brand's flagship sportscar. Now, four years on, JÚKE-R has been given an exciting upgrade to reflect the latest model of the JÚKE coupled wîth even more power and bolder styling. Welcome the JÚKE-R 2.0.

The global debut of the JÚKE-R 2.0 will take place at the thrilling annual Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 25 on the Nissan stand before being displayed in the Supercar Paddock for the remainder of the weekend.

Visitors at Goodwood, along wîth those watching the spectacular event on television, will also witness the JÚKE-R 2.0 make its dynamic debut on Goodwood's Hillclimb on all three days of the event, driven by Nissan GT Academy graduate and Le Mans 24 Hours driver Jann Mardenborough.

Based on the updated Nissan JÚKE that launched in Europe in 2014 – which features several significant design and technical enhancements – the JÚKE-R 2.0 has been injected wîth further levels of GT-R testosterone to now reach 600hp. Still sporting the iconic 'R' matte black, the JÚKE-R 2.0 is an even more muscular, bolder and powerful version of its predecessor.

'The JÚKE-R has become an iconic Crossover supercar, and wîth the launch of the latest JÚKE model last year, it was the natural choice to upgrade the original JÚKE-R wîth added power and even bolder styling,' said Gareth Dunsmore, Marketing Communications general manager for Nissan Europe. 'The JÚKE-R 2.0 is a perfect 'crossover' of the best bits of Nissan – real innovation showcasing our crossover prowess fused wîth the excitement of the GT-R supercar engine.'

Soon to celebrate the JÚKE's fifth anniversary of production, the JÚKE-R 2.0 arrives in time to celebrate the birthday of Europe's best-loved compact crossover. With over 600,000 sales across Europe since initially launched in 2010, the JÚKE continues to highlight Nissan's position as crossover leaders, alongside the award winning Qashqai and adventure-inspiring X-Trail.

Nissan JÚKE-R 2.0 Specifications
The JÚKE-R was based on the original JÚKE production car launched in 2010. The JÚKE-R 2.0 is based on the newer JÚKE model launched in Europe in 2014, to which there were several significant design changes and also technical enhancements. One of these elements was the extensive personalization options introduced based on customers' desire. There was also a new lamp shape, LED running lights and LED bulbs in the taillights to give a fresh appearance, while new door mirrors incorporate LED side turn repeaters. The new Nissan V-motion grille at the front is a further feature.
