We haven't heard much about the
since the hyper-performance
confirmed for production
, but with the first example on its way to a very wealthy customer,
has given us a look at Juke-R No. 001. This
skin was originally built as a one-off
, and now this white Juke-R is the first of only a "handful" of models that
is planning to build.
As expected, the production version of the souped-up
is a bit more powerful than the concept version displayed earlier this year. Using the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 from the 2013
, the Juke-R will be rated at the same
horsepower rather than the 480 hp the Juke-R Concept had with the 2012 GT-R mill under the hood. Nissan says this will give the Juke-R a top speed of 170 miles per hour with the ability to accelerate from 0-60 mph in under three seconds.
This is the first time we've seen live images of the Juke-R in white, and the lighter coloring helps show off a few of the changes Nissan made to the exterior design. After announcing that the supercrossover would be built, Nissan looked to its European design team to fine tune the Juke-R's styling. These changes include slight tweaks being made to the front and rear fascias, redesigned side sills and wheels grabbed from the 2013 GT-R.
Nissan did announce the starting price of 400,000 euros (close to $521,000), but for those of us who can't afford this kind of money, the Juke-R will be in a new mobile game called
Asphalt 7: Heat
