Nismo, as you know, is Nissan’s in-house tuning arm. They are planning to expand business and launch more models and they begin with this, the Nismo version of the Juke crossover.

The car is aimed at a car-loving audience looking for a car that reflects an edgy personality, Juke Nismo Concept magnifies the standard car’s unique mix of compact car agility, coupé-like responses and SUV strength. So it gets a tweaked powertrain, a heavily revised exterior, and a fancy interior with sport elements. The chassis is also upgraded to cope with the extra sportiness and speed. It is a very interesting prospect, this mix of sport and practicality.

Finished in signature Nismo colours of pearl white with red highlights, the Juke Nismo Concept wears a body kit created by Nismo’s aerodynamic specialists whose skill has been honed perfecting racecar bodywork. And as on a racecar, the Juke Nismo Concept body kit is designed not just to look good, but also to be dynamically highly efficient. New parts include revised lower bumpers front and rear, wider fenders and sill side skirts.

Nismo touches can also be found in the interior of the Concept, where parts that interact with the driver’s sense of sight, sound, look and feel –­ such as the steering wheel, pedals, gauges, shifter knob and door trims, plus bucket seats and sport tachometer.

This car will make it into production, but in limited numbers, and probably a fat price tag.
