Nissan Releases "The Dark Knight Rises" Juke Nismo [Photo Gallery]
We are talking about the Juke The Dark Knight Rises Nismo, a project that saw the carmaker join forces with Warner Bros for bringing the third film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy to the auto world.
The vehicle is based on the Juke Nismo, so it uses a 200 hp 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit that works with a six-speed manual and sends the power to the front wheel. This also means that you get a Nismo body kit, as well as updates for the suspension and interior (compared to the standard Juke).
As for the details that remind us of Bruce Wayne, the car comes with Matte Black paint and borrows a few tricks from Batman’s Thumbler, suc has a shark fin antenna. In the cabin, Nissan fitted Bat logos on the kickplates and reflective Bat badges on the headrests. The downlights placed under the exterior mirrors mean that you can project the Bat signal onto the road. The same signal is projected onto the black headlining too.
The Juke The Dark Knight Rises Nismo, which was developed by London-based Nissan Design Europe, can only be obtained via a special competition. This runs until February 28th 2013 - the winner will be announced in early March.
“Just take the Thrill Test and you’re in with a chance of owning The Dark Knight Rises Juke Nismo,” Nissan tells us.
