Nissan Loses Its Mind… Builds Juke-R for Real!

By raccars Published

Not too many people saw it coming, but Nissan have stunned us all with the announcement that they’re putting the bonkers, ridiculous, stupid, slightly brilliant and confusing Juke-R into production. That’s right; the car that looks like a medley of Nissan’s current line-up is about to be available to buy with the GT-R’s 545bhp, twin-turbo V6.

According to Nissan, they saw a huge interest in the Juke-R in Dubai and two people have already placed orders – rich people, we assume. No word on prices or even how many they’re going to make but expect it to be a limited-edition model with a price-tag way above £100,000.

The Juke's marketing manager, Gareth Dunsmore said: "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."

So there you have it; one of the ugliest cars on the road – now with more power than a Ferrari California.
