Orland Park Nissan Fans Celebrate Juke’s New Record

At Kelly Nissan, our Orland Park area Nissan dealer, we were incredibly excited to hear that our favorite stuntman, Terry Grant, has broken his own world record for the fastest mile travelled on two wheels in a four-wheeled vehicle: the sport incarnation of the Nissan Juke, the NISMO RS.

Jovial Juke Wins More Than Hearts

Terry Grant has had six attempts at travelling up the famous Goodwood hillclimb course during this weekend’s Festival of Speed; however, he broke the record on the first try as he was able to achieve a time of 2 minutes and ten seconds. Impressive, aye? This time eclipses his previous record, also set in a Nissan Juke, at the Festival of Speed in 2011. Then, Grant achieved a time of 2 minutes and 55 seconds. He clearly shattered that time as he set a new benchmark for this unique challenge. This jeopardy-filled drive was the culmination of three months of practice and set-up for Grant.

“I was shocked at how much faster the Juke NISMO RS was, and to take 45 seconds off what was already a quick time, was unbelievable,” said Grant. “To break it by so much on my first attempt was a great way to kick off the weekend, and I’m looking forward to seeing if I can go faster.”

The Juke NISMO RS is the sexy, hot new performance version of Nissan’s popular crossover, with years of racetrack heritage taken from the enigmatic NISMO brand marrying the Juke with impressive power credentials, sporty, aggressive styling, and optimum handling capabilities. Orland Park Nissan Juke fans will fawn over this model.

This model’s two wheel tricks and antics were just one on the many highlights from the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which also featured the global debut of the Juke-R 2.0 concept: the ultimate performance version of the Juke.
