Called The Dark Knight Rises™ Juke Nismo, the one-off machine features a host of Batman-inspired details that will make the lucky owner the envy of every movie fan and car buff.
Based on the new Nissan Juke Nismo, which goes on sale in the UK in January 2013, The Dark Knight Rises™ Juke Nismo features the same 200PS 1.6-litre turbocharged engine driving the front wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox – giving it a 0-62mph (0-100 km/h) time of 7.8 seconds – as well as a Nismo bodykit, uprated suspension and enhanced interior.
But in addition, it has a whole host of Batman-inspired details that will make the driver feel just like Bruce Wayne.
Matt black paint gives a menacing look reminiscent of Batman’s Tumbler, while a shark fin antenna replaces the standard car’s conventional aerial. In addition to Nismo badging, there are aluminium
Bat badges on the front grille and tailgate while the unique gloss black 18-inch alloy wheels include bespoke red detailing, matching the eye-catching pinstripe on the bumpers and sills of the standard Juke Nismo.
Open the door and you’re greeted by Bat logos on the kickplates and reflective Bat badges on the headrests of the suede-trimmed Nismo sports seats. Thanks to downlighters mounted under the door mirrors the famous Bat signal can be projected onto the floor area around the doors. A clever uplighter projects the same signal onto the black headlining inside too.
The Dark Knight Rises™ Juke Nismo is the work of Nissan’s very own Batcave – Nissan Design Europe, based in London’s Paddington, the same studio responsible for the design of the original Juke.
The Dark Knight Rises™ Juke Nismo will not go on sale in a Nissan dealership, nor will it be made available to the highest bidder – instead the only way to get this car on your driveway is to enter a special competition.
