First Nissan Juke-R Delivered to Customer #1





Perhaps unsurprisingly both customer #1 and #2 hail from the oil rich Middle East where interest in this conglomeration of supercar and urban CUV was the highest upon the introduction of the radical concept a year ago.

For some $500,000 an individual will get the drivetrain of a GT-R with over 500 hp, AWD and all the other benefits of the top of the line Nissan sportscar.  All this is shoved into a little CUV and allows the Juke-R to spring to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds.

Supposedly the Juke-R also comes with a FIA compliant roll cage though I don't think I see one in the video below.  Regardless, as a very low production vehicle and about as "custom" as you are going to get from a major auto manufacturer the Juke-R will stand alone in the world of sporty SUV/CUVs.  A Porsche Cayenne Turbo ain't got nothing on this.
