Nissan Juke NISMO isn’t Juke-R fast, but has the sporty looks

Later this weekend, the production version of the Nissan Juke Nismo will make its world debut at the Le Mans 24 hour alongside the Nissan DeltaWing and the Juke-R.

While Nismo is usually known for offering a more hardcore performance version of a Nissan, don’t expect much from the Juke Nismo.

Power still comes from a 1.6 liter direct injected turbo 4-cylinder gasoline engine but the Nismo engineers upgraded the Juke with a stiffer suspension with new steering modifications for a more direct handling and improved traction control. The Nissan Juke Nismo will also be available with torque vectoring, a technology offering better grip and cornering capacity.

Looks wise, the Nissan Juke Nismo gets a new lower front and rear bumpers, wider wings and sill side skirts, a modified grille and a new tailgate spoiler that control airflow. It also gets 18-inch alloy wheels with wider tires. Inside, the interior gets a bunch of sporty upgrades including new pedals, gauges, gear knob, steering wheel and trims.

European sales of the Nissan Juke Nismo start January 2013.
