The first production Juke-R is ready for delivery to its owner. Nissan revealed the first pictures and additional details on the special crossover today.
The Juke-R story began when it was revealed for the first time as a one-off concept in January 2012 in Dubai. With the modified underpinnings of a GT-R under a Juke bodyshell, the R was become something special.
Work then started to transform the concept into a road car. Built by RML with advice from Nissan Technical Centre Europe (NTC-E), the Juke-R uses the Nissan GT-R’s drivetrain and suspension along with an FIA-specification roll-cage.
Thanks to NTC-E, the production version is more powerful than the concept, producing 545bhp from its 3.8 liter twin-turbo V6 engine. Thrilling performance is guaranteed, with 0-100km/h estimated to take only 3.0 seconds and a maximum speed of 170mph.
In addition to these technical enhancements, Juke-R #001 also has a new look thanks to input from the Nissan Design Europe in Paddington, London. The design refinements include more definition for the front bumper and new carbon trim on the front and rear cooling vents and the rear aero diffuser.
