Nissan Juke Nismo Dark Night Rises

A new version of the Nissan Juke Nismo has been revealed. We are actually talking about the Dark Night Rises that features typical Batman accents for a better impression. The model was developed to celebrate the collaboration between the Japanese Nissan and Warner Bros and the release of the Batman trilogy on DVD and Blu-Ray 3rd December. The new Nissan Juke Nismo Dark Night Rises features a lot of details inspired from Batman that will impress all movie fans, for sure. The model is scheduled to go on sale starting January next year.

Under the hood it hides a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine capable of generating 200 PS. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 7.8 seconds. To transfer the power produced to the front wheels, the engineers have offered a 6-speed manual gearbox. The new Dark Night Rises Limited Edition also comes with a Nismo body kit, enhanced interior and upgraded suspension. There is a shark fin antenna that replaces the conventional aerial of the standard car, aluminum Bat badges on the front grille and tailgate. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have provided 18-inch alloy wheels that include bespoke red detailing that goes better with the pinstripe on the bumpers and sills of the standard model.

The new Nissan Juke Nismo Dark Night Rises will not be available in Nissan dealerships nor will be made available to the highest bidder. The only way to get it is to enter a special competition at www.builttothrill.co.uk. The competition is actually on until the 28th of February 2013 and the winner will be announced at the beginning of March. The model will be available with two transmissions: a 2WD manual or 4WD CVT automatic one. All prices and full specifications will be available once the car is launched.
