Nissan will produce a limited edition of the Juke-R with improved mechanical features, compared to the first prototypes. The 2007 Nissan GT-R twin-turbo V6 engine with output of 485hp that was fitted on the concept cars will be replaced with the upgraded unit mounted on the GT-R my2012 and capable of delivering an impressive 545hp.
The Juke-R with 485hp covered the 0-100Km/h in 3.7 seconds with a maximum speed of 257km/h: Nissan officially confirmed the top speed data; however, it never validated the acceleration figures that should be, strictly speaking, lower. Besides the engine, the production version of the Juke-R will sport a new gearbox and will use the same drivetrain and chassis of the powerful GT-R my2012, to make the most of the extra 60hp.
Nissan has decided to create a limited edition after the amazing reaction the car had during the presentation in Dubai, where the Japanese carmaker has already received three orders that will be shipped by the end of summer. The price of the car is still unknown, but if you want more info or want to make an offer, Nissan has created an email address for this purpose: firstname.lastname@example.org
