Nissan Juke R Tackles Norwegian Ice (Video)

Nissan Juke R Tackles Norwegian Ice (Video)

The Nissan Juke R is one of those vehicles that when it acts, we watch - partly because it's just such a cool little car and partly because it's usually doing cool things. Like racing supercars. And tearing up ice in Norway.

After his stint racing around the streets of Dubai, Nissan driver Lucas Ordonez got sent to the other end of the world. Instead of hot asphalt and hot supercar engines, he's battling cold ice on the Losna Isbane Ice Track in Norway. As you might expect, the suped-up small crossover looks all kinds of comfortable shaving ice and fishtailing across the great north.

The Juke R just refuses to go away. It's been highlighted in more videos than we can remember, and Nissan recently commited to building it on a per-order basis. Those wishing to shred Middle Eastern desert and Scandinavian tundra like Ordonez will have to be willing to pony up in a big way. Nissan hasn't released a final price on the Juke R but has mentioned it's likely to run around $590K. Those customers will have a little more to play with, though, as Nissan will upgrade the production Juke R with the 545-hp 2012 GT-R powertrain.

Now watch Ordonez rock a new type of Nordic skiing in the video below.
