A number of years ago, Nissan and the RML Group in the UK collaborated and built four Nissan Juke-R models with the powertrain of a Nissan GT-R. As it turns out, there is a fifth, very similar Juke-R out there and it is currently for sale from VDM Cars in Germany and listed on James Edition.
As Motor Trend notes, while the listing describes this Juke-R as “1 of 5 worldwide,” it’s not actually one of the examples officially commissioned by Nissan and the RML Group. Instead, this modified Juke was built by British tuner Severn Valley Motorsport and features a legitimate Juke-R shell from RML Group.
Officially dubbed the SVM Juke-R700, power is fed by a Nissan GT-R 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that’s been modified with 1050 cc injectors, a new air intake system, and a bespoke exhaust. There is also a twin-plate clutch to ensure the transmission is able to support no less than 700 hp.
Complementing the powerful engine are a series of significant suspension and brake upgrades. For example, there are Nitron 3-way adjustable coilovers as well as SVM front brake discs and the front and rear calipers of a GT-R. The small crossover is also rolling on a set of real 20-inch GT-R wheels with Bridgestone tires measuring 225/40 at the front and 285/35 at the rear.
The custom touches continue in the cabin with parts lifted directly out of the GT-R, including the instrument cluster. There’s also a complete roll cage.
With a claimed 12 miles (20 km) on the clock, the Nissan SVM Juke-R700 carries an eye-watering price tag of €649,500 or just over $705,000 in the U.S. – though don’t get any crazy ideas, as you can’t officially import this one over here (yet).
