nissan juke r said to cost 600 000

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.

    screw it, I approve. In exactly the same way I'd rather see actual car based racecars doing battle over prototypes, I kind of like seeing half million dollar halos with some relationship to an actually buyable car. It's not like cars such as the Veyron and F1 have no place in my heart, but frankly I don't even really read road reviews of them anymore. Too divorced from what I'm going to see on a real road.

    Someone should do a Juke R vs G65 AMG comparo. I've got the popcorn ready.

    Next up, the Cube R. With a run of maybe ten cars at $1.2M each, they should go like hotcakes. A convertible Murano R would be great, too. For a support vehicle, the Quest R. And for the fuel/environmentally conscious, the Leaf R. Hell, at those prices and miniscule volume, Nissan should make a GT-R based version of their entire model line. You know there's a small group of ultra-wealthy out there, somewhere, that will buy them all just to have a matching set.

    That little beast has already generated millions worth of publicity. And they're just getting started . . . . The Juke R was an excellent investment.
