Nissan Sends the Juke-R Into Production
What kind of accessories does it take to push the cost of the $19,990 Nissan Juke up over half-a-million dollars? Well, first of all, there aren't any accessories packages available at Connell Nissan that are worth quite that much money, so we're sorry to say you can't get that kind of car here. But if you were to order directly through Nissan - the $590,000 Juke-R can be all yours.
What makes it worth so much? Well, this is a car that started out as a publicity stunt - seriously! Nissan built one of these, and it served as the pace car for the Dubai 24 Hour race. That was all it was supposed to do. And then people started calling Nissan to ask if they could buy it. So they made the most logical choice they could, and decided to send it to limited production. As many as 25 units will be produced this year - at the most.
The regular Juke is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces a zippy 181 ponies of power. But that sounds pretty wimpy when compared to the twin-turbocharged V6 in the Juke-R, capable of producing as much as 545-horsepower. The Juke-R will jump from 0-60 mph in a whiplash-inducing 3.7 seconds.
Suffice it to say, Connell Nissan thinks this car just might be worth all that money
You won't find it parked here in our showroom, but you can go for a test drive in one (or both) of the cars that inspired this super-powered phenom - the Juke and the Nissan GT-R, where the Juke-R gets its powertrain from.
