THE NISSAN JUKE-R GETS AN EXCITING UPGRADE - INTRODUCING THE JUKE-R 2.0

-Nissan upgrades its legendary original Juke-R Crossover supercar
-The Juke-R 2.0 concept makes its global dynamic debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed (26-28 June in the UK)
-Drawing on impressive performance from the GT-R, the Juke-R 2.0 will reach 600bhp
-LM P1 driver and GT Academy winner Jann Mardenborough to showcase the Juke-R 2.0 up the famous Goodwood hill
-Launched this Summer to kick start the fifth anniversary of the Nissan Juke

The birth of the Nissan Juke-R set a benchmark in 2011 as the world's first Crossover supercar, marrying Nissan's innovative Juke with the engine and running gear from the legendary Nissan GT-R - the brand's flagship sportscar. Now four years on, Juke-R has been given an exciting upgrade to reflect the latest model of the Juke coupled with even more power and bolder styling - welcome the Juke-R 2.0.

The global debut of the Juke-R 2.0 will take place at the thrilling annual Goodwood Festival of Speed on Thursday 25 June on the Nissan stand, before being displayed in the Supercar Paddock for the remainder of the weekend.

Visitors at Goodwood, along with those watching the spectacular event on television, will also witness the Juke-R 2.0 make its dynamic debut on Goodwood's Hillclimb on all three days of the event, driven by Nissan GT Academy graduate and Le Mans 24 Hours driver, Jann Mardenborough.

Based on the updated Nissan Juke launched in 2014 which features several significant design and technical enhancements, the Juke-R 2.0 has been injected with further levels of GT-R testosterone to now reach 600hp. Still sporting the iconic ‘R' matt black, the Juke-R 2.0 is an even more muscular, bolder and powerful version of its predecessor.

Gareth Dunsmore, Marketing Communications General Manager for Nissan Europe said, "The Juke-R has become an iconic Crossover supercar and with the launch of the latest Juke model last year, it was the natural choice to upgrade the original Juke-R with added power and even bolder styling. The Juke-R 2.0 is a perfect ‘crossover' of the best bits of Nissan - real innovation showcasing our Crossover prowess fused with the excitement of the GT-R supercar engine."
Soon to celebrate the Juke's fifth anniversary of production, the Juke-R 2.0 arrives in time to celebrate the birthday of Europe's best loved compact crossover. With over 600,000 sales across Europe since initially launched in 2010, the Juke continues to highlight Nissan's position as crossover leaders, alongside the award winning Qashqai and adventure-inspiring X-Trail.

To be fair, I imagine it costs them a LOT less money to build a super-limited production side project (that shares many of its parts with another vehicle) than to build an entirely new mass-producable sports car from scratch.

Because the first Juke R caused a stir and got them incredible press and sold out. Plus, that ^ is uglier then a dog's vomit.

My wife has a Juke, and since I have driven that, it only makes me wonder how bat **** crazy the R is.

This! Why are we coming out with stuff like the Jeep Cherokee Trackhawk? I feel like 30 years from now there are going to be a bunch of these with 0 miles because they're bought by people with too much money and nobody actually has a use for them.
Why are you questioning the need for 600+ hp C/SUVs? Frankly, I think everyone could use a bit of overpowered utility in their life.
