On paper, the
Aside from the wilder styling hinted at in this leaked rendering--which includes a wide body kit, GT-R style hood vents, and not one, but two roof spoilers--the Super Juke will also benefit from larger GT-R-style black finish wheels filling the enlarged wheel wells and upgraded brakes. It also looks like the Super Juke is crouched just a bit lower than stock as well.
This isn't the first, but the speculation doesn't stop there. Rumors point to a detuned version of the Nissan GT-R's 3.8-liter twin turbocharged engine residing under the Juke's hood outputting somewhere in the neighborhood of 480-horsepower (down from the GT-R's 530-ish horsepower mill). I'm surprised that the larger engine and the ducting required for a pair of turbos will fit under the Super Juke's hood.
There's also no word on whether the Juke's CVT-basedhas been beefed up to deal with the increased power or if the GT-R's has been swapped in.
The Super Juke is likely a one-off model being developed for some car show, but we won't know for certain until the more details are officially revealed. Odds are slim that this most beastly of Jukes will ever see public consumption. We know that at least one Juke-loving Car Tech editor is waiting with bated breath.
