Nissan Juke-R Crossover Headed For Limited Production [video]

Nissan Juke-R

Nissan has confirmed that they will produce the supercar like Juke-R in limited numbers. Nissan has already received three orders, that will be delivered to their new owners in late summer. Nissan is glad to build more Juke-Rs upon request and will be taking orders soon, so if interested email to: Juke-R@Nissan.co.uk.

The Juke-R concept was based on the 2010 GT-R and the production version will use the drivetrain and chassis of the MY12 GT-R. We are talking about 545 hp and a top speed of 160mph. Impressive!

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!

LONDON, United Kingdom (Thursday, 3 May, 2012) – Nissan has announced that its innovative Juke-R crossover will be made available to buy in a very limited run on build-to-order basis.

The 3.8-litre, 160mph Juke-R made its global debut in Dubai in January this year, attracting enormous attention and, as a result, Nissan has now received firm orders for three cars to be built. Two have come from a high-profile and well-respected member of Dubai society.

Nissan will build more Juke-Rs upon request and will be taking orders in the coming four weeks, before production starts in earnest.

While the original Juke-R was based on the MY10 GT-R running gear, the run of new cars will benefit from featuring the drivetrain and chassis of the MY12 GT-R and, with the build of the first cars underway, the first three cars will be delivered to their new owners in late summer.

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. 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.”
