NISSAN: WE'RE GOING TO MAKE THE JUKE-R
Madcap GT-R and Juke hybrid will be built in limited numbers
3.8-litre Twin-turbo V6-powered Juke-R caused quite a stir when it was launched earlier this year, and now Nissan has announced that it will be building a limited run of production cars, on a built-to-order basis.
Three firm orders have already been taken, and Nissan is now keen to take more orders over the next four weeks, before it knuckles down to build the cars.
While the concept cars were based on a 2010 model year car, the final versions will be based on the chassis and running gear of the latest 2012 models - and the first three cars will be delivered to their new owners in late summer.
Gareth Dunsmore, Marketing Product Manager for the Juke, said: "The Juke-R was originally intended as a one-off concept to marry two of Nissan's most innovative models. But the reaction we had to the car in Dubai was amazing - people were making offers for the original on the street!
