Nissan Juke-R priced at $590K

Just last week Nissan announced the hyper-spastic Juke-R concept would be built in a very limited build-to-order basis. Soon after the announcement, Nissan Americas Vice President, David P. Reuter said in corresponding with Inside Line that the production Juke-R would carry a price of around $590,000 (€450,000).

"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."

Reuter didn't give any clues about the total number of units expected to be produced, but SportAuto.fr has reported Nissan will cap it to be between 20 to 25 units.

The made-to-order Juke-Rs promises to be an even bigger skorcher than the original concept car, which was based on the 2010 Nissan GT-R with 485 bhp (362 kW / 492 PS). Instead, the new Juke-R will feature the upgraded drivetrain and chassis of the 2012 GT-R which outputs 545 hp (406 kW / 553 PS) and 463 lb-ft (627 Nm) of torque.

Production of the first three units ordered is already underway with delivery planned for late summer.

OK Nissan, April fools is over...The only fools now would be those who are guillible enough to buy this. It would probably be cheaper to merge a Lambo with the GTR and still have money left over - even if it's sacrilege to most people. This is just a travesty and waste of money.

First it will be extremely limited so this alone raised the price. Second fixing the GTRs components and engine under the tiny Jukes hood is not an easy job. it takes them weeks to make one car so stop making jokes and they did not call you to buy so if you don't like it just skip to another article

I could take the scion/toyota gt 86 and fit in the 5.0 v8 from the IS-F and still have more than enough to have a stock 86 and a stock IS-F, or maybe use the same 5.0 V8 and create my own GS-F.

It makes the Lexus sound like a real bargain at 500k for a design that is actually unique compared to the Joke.

This has got to be the dumbest thing I've ever seen. I can probably personally build one of these for 110k. I guess Nissan want's that oil well money.

Its a tuned Juke! It would cost less to pay someone to do it for you and even if you buy it can you seriously call this an investment? Yeah the low numbers may help the demand but the price will go south faster than it gets to 100.

Yeah it'll be rare but it's not exactly a bespoke car, its a small economy car made by the thousands. Sitting next to a standard Juke it'll just look like a tuned version of the same thing. And how cool is it if you have to tell people what it is, you would have to be mad to pay the price for a super exotic and drive off in a Juke.

i know this wasnt build by nissan, and it was done without their "approval". so i cant really "troll" nissan for this piece of turd. but if nissan would ivnest all their technical know-how and some cash... some imagination, and some passion.... to put this engine and trans into an FX and make an FX-R, and ask like 60-70 grand base price for it.... it would be so, WWOOOWWWW!!

I have to agree with Mikeado here. If you have alot of money and want to buy a high performance supercar, this is not the one you get. If you are Jay Leno, and have enough supercars to fill a country the size of Cyprus, then you buy this one as it is a quite amazing, unique and nuts pocket rocket.

This is the UAE we're talking about here. The plan is to sell it for as much as you can possibly get away with. Also, tiny production run = massive price.

They would consider a tailor-made limited-run Juke GT-R that they can boast is "one of only 25 in the world". That actually makes it more exclusive than the Veyron it'll be parked next to. Don't fixate on it being a Juke, look at the whole thing and it makes a tad more sense. Besides, it's being built specifically BECAUSE people were trying to buy it on the spot upon seeing it. They're selling it because they can. Otherwise they wouldn't bother with such a mad and irrelevant car.

450k € for a turd-looking vehicle with the underpinnings of a car sold for under 100k €...hummmm... tough-call indeed. Then again, never underestimate the wealth of stupid people and their tastes.

In those countries, the more rare the car is, the more money they will spend, it costs about 120k to buy a juke and a GTR, then you gotta think how much it costs to rip apart both and merge them into one car. Then you gotta think how to pay "the professionals" for weeks of work and still make a profit
