Nissan has boosted its credentials as a provider of performance vehicles with the Juke-R.

According to the firm's stats, the model is the fastest crossover in the world and it is hard to argue with those claims given its impressive figures.

The Juke R, which combines the Juke with the powerful GT-R, boasts a top speed of 160mph and the ability to move from 0-62mph in just 3.7 seconds.

Nissan's figures come as the result of a 22-week intense testing process, which has been documented and shared via a host of social media outlets including Twitter and YouTube.

"Created in the UK, Juke-R has been developed by Nissan and built by leading motorsports outfit RML with advice from Nissan Technical Centre Europe," the firm explained.

"Over a 22-week period two models have been created – one right-hand drive and one left-hand drive – with extensive performance testing now completing the final stage of the development project."
