600-HP Nissan Juke-R 2.0 Going Into Limited Production

At their very core, automakers are in the business of making money. Plain and simple. The best way to do that is to sell a very large number of the same of car, thus keeping production costs down, and profits up. As a result, low-run performance cars keep their place as unique and special, like the Nissan Juke-R 2.0, which will be getting a limited run of just 17 vehicles. While other automakers may be too timid to have fun these days these days, Nissan enjoys the occasional insane. The Murano-based CrossCabrio is a good example of that. Heck, it takes guts to make a car like the GT-R, let alone stuff the powerplant and drivetrain of one into an exceptionally quirky crossover like the Juke.

This is the second round for the Juke-R, as evidenced by the “2.0” designation. It was first announced as a concept at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. The revised high-performance crossover will have the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 from the GT-R, packing 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. The first run had a 0-60 mph time of just 3.7 seconds, and a top speed of 160 mph. We suspect the 2.0 can eek out a slightly faster sprint time. RELATED: Check out images of the Nissan GT-R Nismo

Initial reports suggest that the production run will be limited to only 17 cars, though customer demand could influence the final number. The price of the Juke-R 2.0 is not known, but you can bet it will be more than the $590,000 price tag for the original run. RELATED: Check out images of the Nissan 370Z Nismo Roadster Concept
