After the enormous success of the Nissan Juke-R crossover debut in Dubai last January. Nissan will make the Juke-R available for purchase in a limited run, build-to-order production.
Three orders have come already for the Juke-R and Nissan plans to take orders in the next four weeks.
The original crossover sports a 3.8-litre and is based on the MY10 GT-R running gear has a top speed of 160mph Juke-R. The current Juke-Rs that are being built feature the MY12 GT-R chassis and will be delivered to their new owners in late summer.
“The Juke-R was originally intended as a one-off concept to marry two of Nissan’s most innovative models. But the reaction we had to the car in Dubai was amazing – people were making offers for the original on the street!”
Gareth Dunsmore, Marketing Product Manager for the Juke continued. “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.”
