Juke-R The
Juke-R story began when it was revealed for the first time as a one-off
concept in January 2012 in Dubai. The wild child of the Nissan range
soon became an automotive legend in its own right, even though it was
never intended for either physical or virtual production. With
the modified underpinnings of a GT-R under a muscular, re-sculpted Juke
bodyshell, the R was like nothing else. A YouTube sensation, the
Juke-R's fan base grew exponentially - more than 5,000,000 views of
Juke-R videos have been recorded to date. And
so the story of the production version began. Darren Cox, Brand
Director Nissan in Europe, explains: "People loved the Juke-R in Dubai -
we were receiving offers for the original concept on the street! We
couldn't disappoint such dedicated fans, so with three genuine offers on
the table we made the commitment to build a limited run of Juke-Rs." Design and technical innovations Development
work then started to transform a one-off concept into a model which
could be produced and sold. Built by leading motorsports outfit RML with
advice from Nissan Technical Centre Europe (NTC-E), the Juke-R uses the
Nissan GT-R supercar's drivetrain and suspension along with an FIA
specification roll-cage. Thanks
to the expertise of Nissan Technical Centre Europe (NTC-E), the
production version is even more powerful than the concept, providing
545bhp from its advanced twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre engine. Thrilling
performance is guaranteed, with 0-100kph estimated to take only 3.0
seconds and maximum speed tipped to be 275kph. In
addition to these technical enhancements, Juke-R #001 also has a new
look thanks to input from the experts at Nissan Design Europe in London,
UK. NDE's
Digital Team Manager Darryl Scriven explains: "The Juke-R's bumpers and
side sills were redesigned, which is normally a very long process using
full size models in clay. However, we managed to condense the
development time using full size viewing on our new 3D ready projector
and power wall, maintaining a fully digital process while providing a
true supercar quality finish to Juke-R." Design
refinements include more definition for the front bumper and new carbon
trim on the front and rear cooling vents and the rear aero diffuser,
displaying the Juke-R's pure performance DNA. Drive Juke-R and Juke NISMO Juke-R
number #001 is now on its way to the first customer with production of
#002 well underway. The exact price will depend on the precise
specification requested by each buyer, but Juke-R starts from
500,000Euro. While
only a handful of drivers will ever get behind the wheel of the
ultra-exclusive flagship Juke, the spirit of driving excitement is far
more accessible through the Juke NISMO, which goes on sale across Europe in early 2013 offering enhanced dynamics, performance and design. Asphalt 7: Heat will be available to download before the end of the year from both Apple Store and Google Play for only 0.79Euro. Anyone
wishing to get a real-life Juke-R in their garage can register an
interest in purchasing Nissan's most extreme Crossover yet by emailing [email protected]. For further details on the Juke please visit www.facebook.com/NissanJukeOfficial.

I think the production version looks so much better than the matt black concept I see they have redesigned a few of the bodykit parts and looks like they have tidied up the inside from the pics I have seen almost makes me want to order one

This is where tastes differ as I don't like it as much as the matt black concept. I don't know if it is because it is white (i dont have anything against white cars) or because they have tweaked the front and back a bit but, where the concept looked like a Juke but it had something about it this doesn't it just looks like what's on my drive. Sorry Nissan but for me you've ruined it. If I was lucky enough to have ordered one after looking at the concept version I would be asking for my money back.

I didnt think they could have improved on the original matte black, which was stunning.... but i think the white really suits it...
