Look! Down on the Ground! It's Super Juke!
Nissan Europe goes Frankenstein with the Juke, GT-R.
Jalopnik broke this story today, citing unnamed sources that provided the early details of the officially sanctioned swap-project; CarScoop followed up with Nissan Europe representative Gabi Whitfield, who replied with an email stating the following:
"I can confirm there is a project driven by Nissan Europe to create a Super Juke. I can't confirm any other details at this time, but expect more information next week."
That's about all we know right now. Jalopnik says we'll see it by end of year, but whether that's as a concept vehicle or a special limited-edition vehicle is not yet clear.
This would be fun to drag race in against a Mustang GT, I'd eat their lunch...It would be an unfair drag race because the driver of the Mustang wouldn't be able to stop laughing.
My inner 12 year old loves this idea. But to paraphrase Jeremy Clarkson, " Pay for it, with my own money....NO"
Interesting concept, fun looking at least...
I can only imagine the sticker price required to make this functional and profitable.
No way would I pay 40-50-60K for a juke.
At the HP / Weight you can figure 1800 a year or more in insurance for a Juke?
Looks like a wanna-be rally car 2 fast 2 furious sorta thang bro....
In off white it looks like a little rat.
Be interesting to see how firm they have to make the suspension to get a semi-tall car with THAT much power around a corner.
It looks fiesty. I'll bet it's a hoot to drive.
Jalopnik says we'll see it by end of year, but whether that's as a concept vehicle or a special limited-edition vehicle is not yet clear. The big question is, in what market will it be seen? I have my doubts it will be in the U.S. Maybe as a concept but not for production.
