Why not go buy a Juke, and a get the components from a GTR that has been totalled and make your own Juke R. Surely it will cost a lot less than the ridiculous price tag Nissan wants to charge!

Even if this wasn't supposed to be in production, you have to be crazy to spend that money on a car that looks like that.

What a waste of money. I think i'm going to take a Corvette engine and slap it into an HHR, then price it at $250,000.

Since I generally don't knock BMWs(except the awful M6 I owned) there's nothing to avoid.

That's what I was thinking.

It's not just a GTR engine, but the whole powertrain pretty much.

I want to see Nissan put the GTR engine, drivetrain, etc., in a 370Z!

I own the GTR, but it doesn't matter what I own. Looks are subjective. I don't care if you think it's ugly, but your comment had nothing to add except to attack. You came from left field just to say "nah nah, your cars are ugly"

But really, this is SO smart by Nissan. I mean, we're all talking about the Juke right? They are probably breaking even w/ each car, possibly even making a little money, but I doubt all the R and D will be recouped. Basically it's free advertisement.
