Just imagine Batman’s disappointment if he were called to the Batmobile only to find it’s a Nissan. The Japanese marque, however, reckons it would be a great idea, and has subsequently gone to the trouble of making one – based on a Juke. That’s right; love it or hate it; the Juke has been given a going over by NISMO and Nissan to create a Juke Batmobile – and, well, it looks… half decent, actually!

The Nissan Juke is actually a one-off to celebrate the third Batman film going to DVD and Blu-ray next week, and while the Batman Juke may be sinister in its design, it’s also quite quick, too. 0-62mph takes just 7.6 seconds and it comes as standard with that menacing body kit and suspension set-up.

While the Nissan Juke Batmobile didn't feature in the film, it has been designed to look as close to the car driven by Batman in The Dark Knight Rises as any small SUV can. It may not be able to go toe-to-toe with the Joker, but it does look pretty impressive and maybe it'll inspire a few more movie related car design from other big car manufacturers.
