Nissan honors 'The Dark Knight Rises'

December 5, 2012 12:00 AM

The summer's blockbuster hit "The Dark Knight Rises" is coming out on Blu-ray and DVD this month, and to celebrate the launch Nissan has created The Dark Knight Rises Juke Nismo in honor of the film. The car is a completely one-of-a-kind automobile that features an array of details inspired by Batman himself.

Like the standard models of the Juke Nismo, this car boasts a 200 PS 1.6-liter turbocharged engine to go along with the enhanced interior and upgraded suspension. The exterior is marked by a matte black paint job and several aluminum bat logos worked into the design. There is also a shark fin antenna and black 18-inch tires with red accents, according to EGM Car Tech.

There are a few aspects of this car tune up that are sure to thrill superhero fans, and the bat symbols present throughout the interior of the vehicle are definitely in the discussion. An uplighter projects the symbol onto headlining, while downlighters in door mirrors put the symbol on the floor. Bat badges are also present in the headrests and door sills.

Nissan's Juke Nismo will go on sale in January 2013, but this special model will only be available to one lucky winner of an online competition. The automaker is currently involved with a special partnership with Warner Bros., who produced the film, so cinema buffs may be able to expect some more special vehicles in the future.
