The Nissan Juke R concept may have sought to define the high-performance compact crossover, but what happens when you don't have a million-dollar budget, Nissan UK's engineering talent and a spare GT-R lying around? You build your own. And that's what Fox Marketing is doing. Well, almost...

The crew behind some of our favorite builds has apparently taken inspiration from the Juke R and decided to make something slightly less powerful, much more affordable and on the high side of attainable. It's called the Juke S and it's set to debut later this year.

According to Fox, they'll be retaining the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder and torque vectoring all-wheel-drive system used in the standard Juke, but they plan to push the wee engine passed the 400 horsepower mark with a host of breathing mods and a massive turbo.

Other kit will include 14-inch, six piston calipers, 20x9-inch wheels, a reworked suspension, Yonaka Ronin racing seats and an exterior fitted with a custom body kit and Foxy Orange paint from BASF. If all goes according to plan, we'll be seeing it before the summer, and hopefully it will inspire Nissan to develop its own hotted-up Juke for production.

      Still think the Juke is on the wild side of hilarious, in a very lovable way. :D 400hp out of a 1.6 sounds insane though haha

      Ok, it looks worse than both a standard Juke and a Juke R. That bodykit, tacky dubs, and searing paint job really dont do any good. But, 400hp out of a puny 1.6L is downright awesome. Imagine the turbo lag!

      The Photoshop "skills" of some of these companies is absolutely appalling.

      Juke is interesting but the top end model with AWD doesn't have a stick shift (oops) and putting a low air dam on the front defeats the purpose of having ground clearance entirely.

      When it takes a 3rd party customizer, and however many thousands of dollars is considered to be the 'high side of attainable,' just to make this thing remotely purchaseable (not by me, mind you...absolutely no interest in this abomination), doesn't that tell you that this vehicle is just too much on the wrong side of wierd?

      A 1.6L 4-cylinder with a huge turbo and 400 hp--that thing should explode very nicely.

      I've always liked the specs of the Juke. I just can't stand the front end.

      So it's a 400HP ugly car. It's still ugly.

      Does anyone truly believe that the 1.6 liter engine will withstand that kind of stress for very long? That's just plain silly. BTW, yeah, it's still ugly.

        if the engine is properly built, yes. It's the rest of the drivetrain that might not take the abuse which is harder to "build up".
