Nissan has announced they plan to assemble up to 17 units of the insane Juke-R 2.0.

The revised Juke-R made its debut about a month ago at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but at that time Nissan referred to the car as being only a concept. Now, a limited-run production is being planned and they want to build up to 17 units, but the final number will obviously depend on customer request. We don't know how much it costs, but it will probably be just as expensive as its predecessor that was available for a cool $590,000 and only a handful of units were made.

This new and improved version borrows the GT-R NISMO's twin-turbo V6 3.8-liter engine with 600 PS (441 kW) and 652 Nm (481 lb-ft) of torque. Performance details are not known at this moment, but it's safe to say it is considerably quicker than the less powerful old variant which covered the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 3.7 seconds and had a 160 mph (257 km/h) top speed.
