Nissan’s mad little monster, the Juke-R, is back, in the form of a new ‘version 2.0’ concept for this weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The matt-black look of its predecessor is again featured, along with the big bolt-on guards jutting out over the enhanced Juke’s wider track.

There’s new Nismo-sculpted aero and styling tricks up front, including a boxy three-port intake and splitter design, while the rear wears the same tall bumper with in-set diffuser and two large exhaust bezels.

As expected, the Juke-R 2.0 is powered by the same uprated 3.8 litre twin-turbo V6 that drives the extra-special GT-R Nismo, churning out a mean 441kW.

That’s once again matched to the GT-R’s all-wheel-drive system, ensuring the mean SUV doesn’t sit spinning its wheels in one spot all afternoon.

Other tricks include a liberal application of carbon-fibre through the Juke-R's construction, both inside and out. And, as a track-focused funmobile, there's also a roll-cage.

Nissan and Nismo have yet to offer any details on the new R’s performance, but with the previous 358kW version capable of a 3.7 second run to 100km/h - or so it has been said - you’d have to figure this one will cut a few hairs off that supercar sprint.

There’s also no word on whether this one will go into production. But, with the previous Juke-R available in limited numbers at around AU$800,000, there aren’t going to be many disappointed cheque-waving would-be buyers.

Watch for the Juke-R to tear up the Goodwood Festival this weekend.
