Nissan Juke-R, a compact Nissan GTR, enters production

We’ve seen Nissan toying with the idea of using the engine of the GT-R race car on a small Juke SUV. The result of that brilliant idea was not a joke. It was the Juke-R and it was introduced as a concept car. As with other concept cars, it was supposed to be dumped and disposed as a project. But that all changed when Nissan debuted the Juke-R in Dubai, making its first public appearance. Apparently it appealed to one wealthy elite in Dubai who asked Nissan to produce not one, but two Juke-Rs. Another individual reportedly joined in and asked for a Juke-R as well.

Of course, for Nissan, it was the perfect time to act. Hence, the company has decided that it will build more Juke-Rs for the world to enjoy. So, how much does it cost? Nissan did not say how much each Juke-R costs, but judging from the initial offering, it’s safe to presume that it will cost a lot. It could even be more expensive than a Nissan GT-R. But this is not confirmed though, Nissan has yet to confirm its value. So, if you’re interested in owning one, just email Nissan at And oh wait, Nissan said that it will use the running gear of the 2012 GT-R car that has a 545 hp twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6 engine. Check out the video after the jump.
