The Dark Knight Rises Nissan Juke Nismo revealed

The Dark Knight Rises Nissan Juke Nismo revealed

The Caped Crusader may be encouraged to swap the Batmobile for a Nissan Juke Nismo when he glimpses upon a special-edition version of the Japanese manufacturer's car.

Entitled The Dark Knight Rises Juke Nismo, the one-off vehicle is being launched by Nissan as part of its ongoing partnership with Hollywood giant Warner Bros.

Revealed just days before the critically-acclaimed hit film The Dark Knight Rises - the final chapter of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy - is released on DVD and Blu-Ray, the limited-edition Juke Nismo has a raft of unique features.

One factor that drivers and fans of Batman will quickly notice is how the vehicle pays homage to the Caped Crusader. For example, the matt black exterior paint job can be compared to the hue used on the superhero's Tumbler.

Meanwhile, a shark fin antenna stands in place of the Juke Nismo's conventional aerial, while striking Bat badges grace the car's front grille and tailgate.

Even more Bat logos can be seen on the vehicle's kickplates and seat headrests once drivers step behind the wheel of this eye-catching motor.

The Dark Knight Rises Juke Nismo, which has been designed and constructed at the Nissan Design Europe studio, is not only about the looks though.

This is evident by the fact that a 200PS 1.6-litre turbocharged engine is capable of taking this car from 0-62mph in a blistering time of just 7.8 seconds.

Furthermore, a six-speed manual gearbox is designed with comfort in mind, so that drivers can work their way up to the car's top speed in next to no time. Attention also has to be paid to the vehicle's bold black 18-inch Nismo alloy wheels, which are highlighted with red detailing.

The Dark Knight Rises Juke Nismo is set to launch alongside the standard Juke Nismo in the new year.
