Nissan Juke-R chosen to pace 24 hours endurance race in Dubai
The 2012 Dunlop 24 Hours of Dubai endurance race scheduled to be held at the Dubai Autodrome from 12 January to 14 January will be expectedly as spectacular as it has always been. But what may take on the spectators with surprise will be the pace car zipping around the track, which is going to be the Nissan Juke-R.
The Nissan Juke-R, essentially a GT-R with a Juke shell, was originally a concept car not slated for production. However, with the Juke-R going to run around the Dubai Autodrome fulfilling the duty of a pace car, we are unsure of Nissan’s intent. Nevertheless, this will be the debut of yet another breed derived from an already controversial breed, unless Nissan plans a launch event for the Juke-R before the race.
Rumours are that the Nissan Juke-R will be present at the upcoming Chicago Auto Show. We choose to reserve our comments and predictions, and just wait and watch.
