Nissan's Juke-R Concept has come to life. After releasing a series of teaser videos that demonstrate the crossover's engineering and production process, the automaker finally revealed photos and a short video showing off the finished product, which joins the Juke's body and platform with the mechanical components of Nissan's lightning-fast GT-R sports car.

On the outside, the Juke-R Concept undergoes substantial changes from its production car cousin. Updates include flared wheel arches, 20-inch RAYS alloy wheels, a sizable split rear wing mounted on the rear hatch, stylized side skirts and a large rear diffuser featuring octagonal outlets for the Juke-R's dual exhausts.

But while exterior upgrades were previewed in early renderings of the Juke-R Concept, the newly released video also reveals the major changes tuner RML Racing made to its interior. While several items including the dashboard and center console are largely unchanged, the more powerful Juke features a new pair of racing bucket seats up front, as well as the GT-R's steering wheel, gauge cluster and infotainment system. But the largest upgrade is in the back, where the Juke's rear bench seat was removed in favor of a race-ready roll cage.

Of course, the Juke-R Concept also includes a host of high-performance upgrades. While the GT-R's 480-horsepower twin-turbo V6 and its advanced all-wheel drive system headline the list of improvements, the crossover also features upgraded brakes, improved suspension and even the GT-R's technologically advanced dual clutch six-speed transmission.

According to Nissan, who helped RML Racing engineer and build the monstrous Juke-R, just two will be built: one in left-hand drive, and the other in right-hand drive. And while that means it's likely we'll never be able to get our hands on one, we can't wait to see Nissan putting the Juke-R through its paces on a race track - especially since the automaker's latest video previews the stunning sound we can expect from the crazy crossover's brawny dual exhausts.
