Yes, you read correctly; Nissan is preparing a “Super Juke” rumored to feature a 480HP engine, which suggests it may very well be fitted with a detuned version of GT-R’s 3.8-liter twin-turbocharging V6 powerplant that delivers 530HP in its current form.
The news was broken by the crew over at Jalopnik citing inside sources. However, just to make sure, we contacted Nissan Europe spokesperson Gabi Whitfield who officially confirmed the existence of the “Super Juke”.
“I can confirm there is a project driven by Nissan Europe to create a ‘Super Juke’,” Nissan spokesperson Gabi Whitfield told Carscoop in an email. “I can’t confirm any other details at this time, but expect more information next week,” she added.
An official sketch of the so-called “Super Juke” was also leaked into the internet revealing a wide-body kit, large GT-R-style alloy wheels in a black finish, hood-vents and a double rear roof wing.
Unfortunately, we still don’t know if its a one-off concept or (less likely) a special limited edition. In any case, we’ll bring you more details on the “Super Juke” as soon as we find out more.
