Nissan Juke-R to enter limited production

NISSAN HAS CONFIRMED that the mad Juke-R will enter limited production on a “build-to-order” basis.

To make the Juke-R, Nissan takes a normal Juke crossover and fills it with the runnig gear from a GTR, this means 480bhp from a 3.8 litre, twin turbo V6 engine driving all four wheels. This produces a 0-62mph time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 160mph.

The modifications don’t end there though, because the Juke-R also benefits from the GTR’s suspension components and interior instruments as well as an FIA-spec roll cage, OMP racing seats, 20-inch RAYS forged alloy wheels and a uniquie bodykit which includes massive flared wheel arches, bigger bumpers front and rear and a split rear spoiler.

However, customer cars should benefit further still as they will be based on the 2012 model year GTR as opposed to the prototype Juke-R which used components from the 2010 GTR.

To coincide with the news, Nissan has released this short film starring Nissan GT Academy winner Lucas Ordonez.

Gareth Dunsmore, Marketing Product Manager for the Juke, said, “The Juke-R was originally intended as a one-off concept to marry two of Nissan’s most innovative models. But the reaction we had to the car in Dubai was amazing – people were making offers for the original on the street! With such a strong reaction, and with three genuine offers on the table, we decided we had to make the car a reality.”
