When the Nissan Juke R was first introduced, the championship race car builders over at RML managed to take the ugliest crossover in the world and turn it into the world’s fastest while making it look awesome.

The Juke R received so much hype that the Japanese automaker decided to do a limited production of the GT-R infused crossover with a very high price tag of around $590,000. But for those with much, much lighter wallets, Nissan also teamed up with Nismo to create a high-performance variant of the Juke that will be much more affordable for the layman.

To grab a little attention for the upcoming Juke Nismo model, the automaker posted a photo on its Facebook page with a caption reading” “Breathtaking chase between Juke-R and Juke Nismo. Make this post reach 1000 likes to see what happens next…”

Clearly the Juke Nismo won’t be able to perform close to what the Juke R does, but it’s still interesting to see how the automaker pit the two crossovers against one another. If you’d like to find out more, click here and throw the Juke a ‘Like.’
