According to website MotorTrend the first Juke-R has left the production line and is ready for delivery. For a short while this first in line shopper will be the member of a very exclusive club, driver of the only road ready Juke-R, anywhere.
With a number of modifications since its initial build the Juke-R is now even faster and more extreme than the original concept car. This is a real concept car come to life, after the initial demonstrations in Dubai there was enough interest to convince Nissan to allow limited production. Now the Juke-R is built to order for serious buyers. The unknown buyer of the first car has paid the breath-taking sum of $650,000 for the privilege.
The Nissan pocket rocket inherits some interesting heritage. The engine, gearbox and transmission donated generously from the Nissan 2012 GTR, somehow this is squeezed into a body based on the Nissan Juke (Micra). The resulting Juke-R is simply an incredible engineering feat.

Felix and the Red Bull Stratos team may have a larger audience than expected, an audience from unknown origins. Captured by the static camera’s at the launch site in Roswell New Mexico are a number of mysterious orb UFO’s that drift about slowly in the sky. Hovering high in the sky above the Stratos team are what appear to be faint orbs or luminous spheres, moving slowly about, watching.
While the weather conditions in Roswell over the last few days haven’t been favourable for a launch of the Stratos balloon it is obviously perfectly good UFO flying weather.
Perhaps it was inevitable; with the many hours of video footage captured and released it was only a matter of time before something unusual was noticed in the footage.
