Report: Nissan Juke-R 2.0 Approved for Limited Production Run

Nismo seemingly moving forward with plans to build up to 17 copies of GT-R-powered mini SUV

The Nissan Juke-R 2.0 concept that raced the hill climb at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed is reportedly headed to production in very limited numbers.

Italian publication Omni Auto reports that Nismo, Nissan’s performance division, is moving forward with plans to build up to 17 copies of the Juke-R 2.0. Since the report is in Italian, we had to rely on Google Translate to learn that confirmation of the plan comes from Nismo engineers charged with producing the Juke-R 2.0.

As previously reported, the Juke-R 2.0 is a mashup of Nissan’s Juke and GT-R Nismo. Power comes from the GT-R’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 and is tuned to make 600 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque. The sophisticated all-wheel-drive system and twin-clutch six-speed auto also comes from the GT-R Nismo. Other modifications include carbon fiber body panels, a roll cage, an aero kit, and wheels sourced from the GT-R.

As its name implies, this is the second version of the Juke-R. The original made less power (480 hp) and was essentially outsourced to a U.K.-based tuner. This time around, the Juke-R makes more power and has Nismo’s backing. Pricing hasn’t been set, but is expected to crest half a million dollars.
