Reports are emerging that the Nissan Juke R will cost $600,000 (about $450,000 euro) once Nissan starts selling their steroid-enhanced crossover.
The Juke R, which will be available in American and offered on a build-to-order basis, was always known to be expensive. The car requires the cannibalization of both a GT-R and a Juke for it to become a reality, plus a whole host of custom fabrication.
Now, Jalopnik is reporting that the final MSRP will be $600,000. With a limited run of 20-25 cars, it surely will be an exclusive collectors vehicle that promises to be unique. But it’s still a Juke with a GT-R powertrain, making it a Frankenstein of two mass-produced cars. Personally, the appeal is hard to grasp. Nevertheless, I’m sure Nissan will be able to find the requisite number of super-wealthy buyers.
