So we are not getting the Juke-R, but this Nissan Juke Nismo will be able to provide half of the fun.
The car is on display at the Geneva show as a concept, but it will be built at Nissan Motor Manufacturing UK in Sunderland alongside other members of the Juke family with sales in Europe due to start towards the end of the year.
The Nismo Juke features a sporty body kit including revised lower bumpers front and rear, wider wings and sill side skirts. All parts, and the new mirror caps, are designed to enhance aerodynamic efficiency of the body. The car also gets new 19-inch alloy wheels. Inside the cabin, this Nismo-powered Juke comes with sporty elements such as the steering wheel, pedals, gauges, gear knob and door trims.
The 1.6 liter engine has also been updated for more power, but detailed specs will be released closer to launch.
