Nissan is planning to unveil a follow-up to its already bonkers Juke-R at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this month.

You remember the Juke-R, of course.

Revealed in late 2011, the little monster was set low on the big GT-R’s turbo V6 and all-wheel-drive system, transforming the Juke from a quirky looking SUV into a slightly less quirky looking 358kW muscle car that’ll cut up the 0-100km/h run in 3.7 seconds.

It’s time for another go, it seems, and Nissan’s tuning arm Nismo promises to again pack “the latest technology, styling and running gear” into the Juke.

Details are still to come, but if Nismo really wants to impress - and you just know they do - we can likely expect a transplant of the GT-R Nismo’s 441kW heart.

That should see the 0-100km/h time slashed to, say, somewhere between 2.5 and 3.0 seconds. Top speed? Something beyond 322km/h seems likely.

Exterior changes will include a Nismo styling kit, widened bolt-on flares and a very necessary lower ride height, while the cabin should again get a roll cage and other race-ready accoutrements.

It’s also unclear if this new one will be offered as a limited-production model.

The old one was available as a built-to-order special for a knock-you-on-your-arse AU$800,000, and we have no idea if anybody outside of the United Arab Emirates bought one. (Would you?)

Watch for the new Juke-R Nismo to be revealed later this month.
