Nissan's 'Built to Thrill' at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Nissan's 'Built to Thrill' at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Nissan has announced its most thrilling Goodwood Festival of Speed line-up yet, which will be headlined by the global dynamic debut of the brand new Juke-R 2.0.

Revealed in 2011, the pioneering Juke-R married Nissan's genre-busting Juke with the engine and running gear from the GT-R, the brand's flagship sportscar.

Now four years on, Juke-R has been given an exciting upgrade to reflect the latest model of the Juke, coupled with even more power and bolder styling  welcome the Juke-R 2.0.

The Juke-R 2.0 will be displayed on the Nissan stand on Thursday 25 June before being moved to the Supercar Paddock for the remainder of the weekend.

Visitors will also witness the Juke-R 2.0 make its dynamic debut on Goodwood's Hillclimb, driven by Nissan GT Academy graduate and Le Mans 24 Hours driver, Jann Mardenborough.

As well as showcasing its performance models, crossover line-up and EV range on its stand, Nissan will be entertaining visitors with an array of interactive experiences and access to sports personalities.

Away from the Hillclimb and on the virtual race track, the carmaker will be giving away three 'golden ticket' entries to its pioneering GT Academy competition, which will endeavour to create yet more brand new racing drivers out of Gran Turismo 6 gamers when the Academy Race Camp kicks off in Abu Dhabi in October.

Thanks to Nissan's partnerships with the British Olympic Association, British Paralympic Association and UEFA Champions League, visitors to Goodwood will be able to take part in a variety of interactive activities. These will range from an opportunity to have a photo taken with the UEFA Champions League Trophy, to trying out wheelchair racing against 2012 Paralympic World Cup Gold Medal Wheelchair sprinter Richard Chiassaro.
