Nissan Juke-R vs GT-R

We pit the new Nissan Juke-R against the GT-R to find out which is quickest around Bedford Autodrome

So how did the Juke-R and GT-R compare on a lap of the south circuit at Bedford Autodrome?

The supercar went first, when the track was still slightly damp, but the low-down thrust of its engine came to the fore as it recorded a time of 65.8 seconds.

By the time the Juke-R went against the stopwatch, the track had dried out a bit. The less aerodynamic shape held the car back over the circuit’s long straights, and it took 1.3 seconds longer, with a time of 67.1 seconds – a sterling effort considering its less powerful engine and additional weight.
