Production Juke Nismo features revised aerodynamics and tuned engine
27 September 2012

Nissan has launched its Nismo road car programme with the reveal of the tuned Juke Nismo at the Paris motor show.

The car, modified by the company’s in-house tuner, uses an uprated version of Nissan's 1.6-litre direct-injection turbocharged petrol engine from the DIG-T model. 

It is fitted with a bespoke aerodynamics package and receives a chassis set-up designed to "deliver an even more engaging driving experience". 

Ther Juke Nismo features new front and rear bumpers, wider wings and side skirts, a different grille and a new tailgate spoiler. Nissan says these features are functional aerodynamic items, rather than for pure visual effect.

The car sits on new 18-inch alloys with stiffened suspension settings.
