The saga of the http://freshnessmag.com/2011/11/18/nissan-juke-r-officially-unveiled-video/”>Nissan Juke-R continues. With its matte black paint job, reinforced roll cage, and a 485 horsepower engine transplanted from a 2010 Nissan GT-R, the Juke-R was the perfect poster-child of garage experimentation. Or at least that was the case, “till execs at http://nissanusa.com/”>Nissan learned of the unsanctioned project by its European engineers. At one point, folks thought the Juke-R project was a goner, forever interred at the auto show circuit or the Nissan Museum in Japan. Not anymore. In a surprise move, Nissan announced that the Juke-R will be in production soon. At a cost slightly higher than the http://gtrnissan.com/”>Nissan GT-R, the most expensive trim in the car maker’s current line-up, each Juke-R will be made-to-order and comes with the new 2012 GT-R powertrain at 545 horsepower instead, an increase of 60 horsepower. In its press release, the company confirmed that the interests were such that three offers came in during the Juke-R’s trial run last year. Those offers also solidified Nissan’s decision to put the car into production. The process is to start in 4 weeks, and interested parties should contact Juke-R@Nissan.co.uk for more details.
