Nissan unveiled its second coming of the GT-R powered Juke R in June, just before Nissan GT Academy winner Jann Mardeborough ripped the crossover supercar up the Goodwood Festival of Speed’s hillclimb course in just 57.21 seconds. If they caught your attention with that little PR stunt, a new report may have you a bit disappointed.
The Nissan Juke R 2.0 will be made in extremely low production numbers, according to Italian website OmniAuto.it. Just 17 examples will be created, 4 less than the 21-car production run planned for the previous version. The original 545 horsepower Juke R was priced at over $650,000, and this new model, which produces 600 horsepower, probably won’t be any less expensive.
There’s no shortage of ample performance SUVs on offer right now, but if power is what you’re after, the Juke R 2.0 certainly seems like one of your better options. It’s closest contenders are the 550 horsepower Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, 557 horsepower Mercedes-Benz GL63 and 567 horsepower BMW X5 M, however those options might be a bit more comfortable than the boy racer Juke.
