Nissan has released official footage of a demonstration race in which the Juke-R – the world’s fastest crossover – took on and beat three supercars around a specially-constructed circuit at the glamorous Dubai International Marine Club. The muscular, 485bhp Juke-R made its global debut as the official pace car for the Dubai 24 Hours on January 13and then stayed in Dubai to take on the supercar establishment in their own urban back yard. At the wheel of the triumphant Juke-R for the demo race was Lucas Ordonez – winner of the inaugural Nissan GT Academy in 2008 and podium finisher in last year’s Le Mans 24 Hours. Taking on the Juke-R around the 0.58km course, which featured the dramatic Dubai skyline on one side and a Monaco-style selection of yachts on the other, were a Lamborghini Gallardo, a Mercedes SLS AMG and a Ferrari 458 Italia.
