Nissan have confirmed that they are going to put into limited production the crazy Nissan Juke-R.
After receiving three orders for the Juke-R, Nissan have decided to build a limited number on build-to-order basis.
The production Nissan Juke-Rs will be more powerful than the well publicized concept – it will feature the running gear from the 2012MY Nissan GT-R – which means 545 bhp from the 3.8 litre engine with a top speed of 160 mph.
With a price tag of circa £400,000 we would imagine that the majority of Nissan Juke-Rs will find homes in the Middle East; the first three cars will be delivered to their new owners in late summer.
Quoting Gareth Dunsmore, the Marketing Product Manager for the Juke: “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. We can’t let down enthusiasts who are this keen to add to their collection of cars. The Juke-R has become something of a phenomenon and I’m enormously proud of the impact it has had. There will be more news to come on Juke later in the year.”
