The 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed is ready to open its gates tomorrow with a lot of important carmakers to reveal special and high-performance models. It is the case of Nissan, also preparing the Juke-R 2.0 Concept, which is part of the company`s “Let`s make the Juke as crazy as possible” series.
And the 2015 Goodwood is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the new Nissan Juke-R 2.0 Concept, which will come with impressive power under the hood and one of a kind aerodynamics and body style.
The Nissan Juke-R 2.0-Concept will come with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine under the hood, the same found on the GT-R Nismo, and will develop 600 horsepower and 652 Nm of torque, which is quite a staggering number for a Juke.
The 2016 Ford Focus RS will make its public debut at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, taking place in a couple of days, and the model has been already decided on the kind of the output it would come with on the market, once it will be launch at the beginning of 2016.
We are talking about a 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder unit, the same one the model was rumored to come with some time ago, which develops 350 horsepower, available at 6,800 rpm, and 440 Nm of torque, available between 2,000 rpm and 4,500 rpm. We might be also looking here at a peak of torque boost to 470 Nm of torque.
The power boost is provided by the new low-inertia twin-scroll turbocharger, fitted with larger compressor which provides more air flow and intercooler for maximum torque density.
The new Renault Captur recently unveiled is popping-up in our news again in a new promotional video which is highlighting the performance capabilities as well as the interesting body style the model is coming with.
We are not going to reveal any details with the video and you should push the play button and see it for yourself.
The Renault Captur has been on the market since 2013, being launched at the Geneva Motor Show and manufactured as the direct rival of other hot models from the B-segment, such as the Nissan Juke, Opel Mokka, Ford Escort EcoSport, Peugeot 2008 or Mazda CX-3.
Even if the Honda Japanese based carmaker has officially unveiled the NXS high-end model at the 2015 NAIAS, in Detroit, the model is still under heavy testing at Nurburgring, with a spy video revealing its presence on the German tracks.
This means that the official model is yet far away from being ready, as the video is showcasing the model revving its engine in tight corners.
Apart being officially unveiled in Detroit, the Honda NSX is also present in Europe, making its way out at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the model coming with an extraordinary body language, translated through the 3D A-pillar, which is a first in the world.

The prices are already available, the cheapest version costing 140,000 GBP in the United Kingdom, 187,000 euros in Germany while the United States can have it from $199,950.
