2011 Nissan Juke Long-Term Road Test


2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: Setting World Record on Two Wheels

July 12, 2011

What fun things are people doing with the 2011 Nissan Juke? Last week during the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Nissan wanted to set a new record so, since driving a Leaf at 90 mph in reverse on the Goodwood course was deemed too risky, the carmaker had stunt driver Terry Grant break the record for "fastest four-wheeled machine to climb the entire course on two wheels"! He did it effortlessly in the Nissan Juke, circling the track in 2 minutes and 55 seconds and claiming the Guinness World Record. And this Juke wasn't tweaked for this stunt, unless you count its new Yokohama production tires.

Hit the jump to see the video of Grant cruising by on two wheels. Fun!

But how did they get the Juke on two wheels in the first place? They set the Juke up on a ramp before the start line and before the first corner, a 90-degree turn. (carpages.co.uk)
