First Production Nissan Juke-R

This little crossover/suv/thing is a Juke-R. Its the WTF mix of a 1.6 liter Juke, and a 3.8 liter 545 horsepower Nissan GT-R.  I will admit, the first time I heard about it, I thought it was bullshit. Since then I have been proven wrong enough, that the first one is actually on its way to a customer in the Middle East.
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).
If you build it, and its odd enough, they will want it, and that is what happened with the Juke-R.  With current exchange rates its about a $650,000 vehicle, so I don't think we will see too many of them.  In theory you could import and legalize one for the US, under something like the Show or Display exemption.
