The saga of the 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 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 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.
