52Nissan Juke R ready for first delivery [w/video]

We haven't heard much about the Nissan Juke-R since the hyper-performance crossover was confirmed for production, but with the first example on its way to a very wealthy customer, Nissan has given us a look at Juke-R No. 001. This GT-R in a Juke's skin was originally built as a one-off concept vehicle, and now this white Juke-R is the first of only a "handful" of models that Nissan is planning to build.

45GT-R-powered Nissan Juke-R lines up against Porsche 911 GT2 RS

The insane automotive concoction that is the Juke R has been doing its thing, beating the doors off supercars, or at the very least giving them a run for their collective money.

8Nissan Juke-R goes ice fishing in Norway

There's something about the boffins over at Nissan – particularly those working at its racing headquarters in the UK. We're not quite sure what it is. Oh, right: they're bonkers. Absolutely off their rockers, in the best way possible. How else would you explain the decision to take an entry-level crossover and swap out its powertrain for that of a supercar?

81Nissan Juke-R to get limited production run [w/video]

It's a rare thing, but every now and then, our automotive wishes come true. Nissan has announced that it will produce the heinous Juke-R in very limited numbers after a warm reception in Dubai. The company has already received three orders so far, and Nissan says it will begin taking additional orders in the next four weeks.

56Showdown: Nissan Juke-R pitted against GT-R on track

Now that Nissan UK is finished with the dog-and-pony promotional show for the Nissan Juke-R, it's free to do what we've all been waiting for: hand it over to The Fourth Estate for proper testing. AutoExpress was the first in line, and they didn't waste the chance, pitting Faust's CUV against the car that made it possible, the Nissan GT-R, around the Bedford Autodrome circuit.

75Nissan releases official footage of Juke-R supercar street race in Dubai

When is a Nissan Juke not a Nissan Juke? When it's the 480-horsepower, Godzilla-powered Juke-R, that's when. Then it's a supercar-beater. And to prove the point, Nissan UK took its one-off super-crossover down to Dubai for a little street racing action.

58Nissan Juke-R takes on Gallardo, 458 Italia and SLS AMG in Dubai

The Nissan Juke-R found some adventurous extracurriculars to take part in while in Dubai to pace the Dunlop 24-Hour race. Nissan said it would be making a film of the Juke-R taking on other street-legal supercars in the Dubai International Marina, but that race is meant to include a Mercedes/McLaren SLR-engined Mercedes-Benz SLK.

60Nissan Juke-R is world's quickest crossover with 3.7s 0-60 time

The Nissan Juke R is a gaggle of impressive numbers: 1,540 hours and 22 weeks of development time, 11 videos of its development, several upset bosses, 480 GT-R-derived horsepower and 428 pound-feet – and to that group we can add a 3.7-second 0-to-60 time and a top speed of 160 miles per hour. Yes, 3.7 seconds may be a second slower than the GT-R, but it's only two-tenths of a second slower than the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

32Fox Marketing developing 400-hp Nissan Juke S

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...

24Nissan Juke R to pace Dubai 24-hour race

The Dubai Autodrome will play host to a very special guest for the 2012 Dunlop 24 Hours of Dubai race.

34Nissan builds the body in seventh Juke-R clip

Sure, the idea behind the Nissan Juke-R project was to squeeze a GT-R powertrain into a Juke bodyshell. But you didn't think they'd just leave the exterior styling alone to look like a stock example of the little five-door, did you? Of course not.

18Nissan Juke-R web build soldiers on with interior fittings

The crack team of engineers that Nissan put to task on building the Juke-R prototype worked hard on their assignment, and have taken us along every step of the way.

21Nissan highlights unique challenges of Juke-R's drivetrain

Most all-wheel-drive vehicles – say, a mass-market crossover like the Nissan Juke, for example – are fairly straightforward in their setup. With the engine and transmission up front, one driveshaft goes to the front wheels and another to the back. But that's not always the case with high-performance machines.

43Nissan shows us how a square peg fits in a round hole with fourth Juke-R clip

You don't simply shoehorn in a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 where a 1.6-liter inline-four used to be. It takes a lot of reconfiguring, as the team at Nissan found in building the segment-busting Juke-R.

139Nissan releases first photo of completed Juke-R

The unveiling of the Nissan Juke-R prototype has been as slow and painstaking as the car's actual build. First we received initial details, a rendering and video of the project under way. Over the course of the following few weeks, Nissan continued keeping us on our toes with a series of videos showing the project coming together. Now that the vehicle has finally reached completion, the Japanese automaker has released a solitary image of the finished product.

12Nissan releases third installment of Juke-R web build

Work is coming along nicely on the Nissan Juke-R. The automaker has released another video in its series of build clips, and fabricators have begun tweaking the Juke chassis to accept all the drive line, suspension and brake components from the mighty GT-R. This just goes to further enforce one of the great laws of modification: there's nothing a plasma cutter can't fix. The newest video also details the kind of cage work that has gone into making sure the high-horsepower Juke-R can keep its occ

31Nissan Juke-R web build continues

When Nissan UK announced that the company planned to build a design study using the body of a Juke and the running gear of GT-R, we knew the automaker's engineers had some serious work cut out for them. Now Nissan is giving the world a glimpse into exactly what it will take to bring the Juke-R to life with a series of build videos. The company isn't simply cramming a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 into the CUV and calling it a day. Instead, a donor GT-R will lend its full all-wheel-drive system and all

87520-hp Nissan Juke-R takes shape [w/video]

It's hard not to love Nissan right now. The company has shown more testicular fortitude over the past 12 months than nearly every other mainstream automaker combined with additions like the Murano Crosscabriolet and the Nissan Juke. You may not love either vehicle's bizarre styling, and you may have trouble slotting them into a comfortable market segment, but both show a determination to shirk a formulaic approach to product development. Now Nissan is diving even deeper into the crazy pool with
