Any die-hard car enthusiast will agree, there's nothing quite like a down-and-dirty street fight to prove who's who. What makes it even better is when the new kid on the block wins. And, that's exactly what happened in Dubai, India this January when the Nissan JUKE-R concept CUV faced off against three supercars. Maybe you've heard of them... Lamborghini's Gallardo, Mercedes' SLS AMG, and Ferrari's 458 Italia. You know, just some of the most highly-esteemed speed demons available in the exotic car market.
Better yet, the Nissan JUKE-R concept, which currently holds the title of the world's fastest crossover, made leading the pack look easy. Maybe it was the JUKE-R CUV's 458 hp, turbo V6 engine that led to victory. Perhaps it was its sports-car-inspired stance or its aerodynamic design. Really it doesn't matter, because at the end of the street race, the Nissan JUKE-R crossed the finish line first. And that's what matters.
The only question left in our mind is how it feels to be one of the three supercars beaten by a crossover. Oh wait! We know the answer... humbling.
