The 600-hp Nissan Juke R 2.0 is reportedly heading to production.

Much like the original Nissan Juke R which saw limited production and had a price tag of around $550,000, the Juke R 2.0 will see 17 units built and will likely cost around $600,000 with all the bits coming from the more powerful Nissan GT-R NISMO, including the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine.

The Nissan Juke R 2.0 made its debut earlier this year at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, sporting a matte black finish, updated bumpers, rear winglets, side skirts and headlights.

While performance is set at 600 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque for the Juke R 2.0, Nissan hasn’t revealed 0-60 or top speed figures yet. The first Juke R did go 0-60 in 3.7 seconds and had a top speed of 160 mph, so at the very least, expect the Juke R 2.0 to go faster in the 60-mph sprint.
