To celebrate the release of The Dark Knight Rises on Blu-Ray and DVD, Nissan have built a one-off Batman-inspired Nissan Juke Nismo.
Dubbed The Dark Knight Rises Juke Nismo (catchy), this matt black car features aluminium Batman badges (or are they removable bat-shaped morning-stars?) as well as unique gloss black 18-inch alloy wheels with bespoke red detailing.
The Batman logos continue through to the interior, with the emblem embroidered into the Nismo sports seats. A shark fin aerial replaces the standard aerial and is capable of picking up police transmissions and calls of distress from Gotham citizens (probably).
One of the more unique features, which we unfortunately don’t have a photo of, is the downlight mounted under the wing mirror. Usually, this feature conveniently lights the floor area next to the door. In this version, however, the light projects the famous bat signal onto the floor instead. Another light projects the same signal onto the ceiling space of the interior. Quite a head-turner and a great conversation piece when arriving at events! Imagine dropping your kids off at their first school ball in this!
Of course, let’s not forget that this is a Nismo-spec vehicle. That means features include a Nismo bodykit, red pinstriping along the bumpers and sills, Nismo badging, uprated suspension, and a 1.6 litre turbocharged engine that delivers 147kW to the front wheels.
The Nissan Juke isn’t the first vehicle to under-go the modern Batman treatment. Our brothers-from-another-mother, Cockram Kia, have a few photos of the Batman-inspired Kia Optima over in their Facebook Photo Album.
This Juke is a one-off but we’re pretty sure there are others who have modified their Nissan to look a bit more Batman-esque. Perhaps even just the matt-black paint treatment. If you have any photos, let us know below!
