Remember the crazy Juke-R from Nissan? The one off project from RML and Nissan UK to prove if you can transform an oridinary and boring crossover car into a monster on roads. Picture a small lizzard which has grown up to become a big Godzilla that terrorize the city. This is infact the car that smoked all the supercar in a special race in Dubai.
Guess what? Now you can buy it now from Nissan, all thanks to the demands from the rich and crazy “Shut Up and Take My Money” Arabs and the folks from Dubai. You may wonder how much this will cost. The GTR costs almost 100 grand in the United States. Nissan America Vice President, David P. Reuter, has just announced the brand new Juke-R can be bought at $590,000. That’s almost a whopping 6 times of the normal GTR! That is before taxes.
The reason for the insane price is Nissan knows this will be a rare collectible item in the future. “We will make Juke-R available to customers anywhere in the world on a build-to-order basis. It is intended for serious collectors and investors who want to own a true original, an innovative project that will only be created in extremely small numbers”, the VP added.
So this 480 bhp V6 beast may be owned by the rich and loaded who may drive this beast maybe once or so during their ownership. Still Nissan, as a corporation, will not border as long this makes money when the demand exists. But if you looking to drive a normal crossover that is “wolf’s in sheep clothing”, look no further than the Juke-R. Just expect to pay 6 Nissan GTRs for that. Don’t forget the taxes as well.
Meanwhile, here another video we found, pitting the Juke-R versus the Nissan GTR by British car magazine Auto Express.
