Nissan Juke-R makes first real-world appearance, only two to be made

Here’s something surprising for a Tuesday. At a crossover media event in Malaga, Spain, Nissan surprised its guest with the first viewing of the Juke-R, which is (was) scheduled to make its full debut at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.

“Just two versions of the Nissan Juke-R are being created, one in each of left-hand and right-hand drive. The cars have been developed by Nissan and are being built by leading motorsports outfit RML with input from Nissan Technology Centre for Europe (NTC-E),” Nissan said. “Testing of the car will begin in November.”

We expect some Nurburgring action coming up very soon.

Refresher: Power for the Nissan Juke-R comes from the GT-R’s 3.8 liter twin-turbo V6 making 520-hp. Under the floor is the GT-R’s six-speed transaxle, with the front and rear ends joined by a modified GT-R 4WD driveline and prop shaft, while chunky 20-inch RAYS forged alloy rims fill each wheel arch.
