Halloween may be long gone, but Nissan hasn't throw…its pumpkins out yet. To celebrate the partnership with Warner Bros and the release of the third film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 3, and of course, create some buzz around its name, Nissan's UK division has built a special vehicle inspired by the Dark Knight.
Called "The Dark Knight Rises Juke Nismo", this one-off model won't go on sale but instead, it will be offered to the winner of a special competition named "Builttothrill" that runs until February 28, 2013 with the results to be announced in early March.
The darker edition of the Juke is based on the Nismo variant that will go on sale in the UK in January next year. We'll remind that the Nismo model sports an uprated 1.6-liter turbocharged four producing 197Hp (200PS) for a 0-62mph (100km/h) time of 7.8 seconds along with a bodykit, 18-inch alloys, tuned suspension and bespoke interior parts.
The Bruce Wayne-inspired model brings a matt black paint reminiscent of Batman’s Tumbler (with a little bit of imagination, that is…), red accent stripes that recall the 1966 Batmobile, a new shark fin antenna that replaces the conventional aerial, Bat badges, and gloss black 18-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, passengers are welcomed by bat logos on the door sills and reflective Bat badges on front and rear headrests.
Finally, Nissan also added an uplighter that projects Bat symbol on the headlining as well as downlighters mounted under the door mirrors that project the Bat logo onto the floor area around the doors.
