Your humble author was charmed by the regular Juke when it debuted, but the Juke-R is a very different animal and it costs about twenty-five times what the standard Juke does. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t have any customers…

Nissan Europe claims that the first production Juke-R was delivered today, at a price of $645,000 (no doubt converted from Euros or pounds) and with a rated power of 545hp. The cynic in me thinks the regular Nissan GT-R actually makes 545 horsepower and has done so for some time now, but never mind. While the Juke-R probably isn’t as fast around a racetrack as the GT-R — and the AutoExpress video above seems to reinforce the idea — it’s a genuinely interesting vehicle for the kind of money that normally just gets you a F12berlinetta as a first-time (read: no dealership relationship) Ferrari customer. We wish the owner all sorts of luck and would like to suggest he come meet us at Virginia International Raceway to see how his tippy new toy handles the Climbing Esses. We promise not to bring a Shelby.
