this came out of the tokyo Motor show lets hope Nissan see sense and make it Full press release from Nissan:NISSAN JUKE NISMO CONCEPT REVEALEDLower, faster and visually even more dramatic, Nismo know-how redefines the Nissan JukeNissan Juke Nismo Concept gives first glimpse of Nismo's futurePurpose-designed body kit enhances looks and aerodynamic efficiencyMore power from tuned engineStiffer chassis and larger tyres for even better handlingDistinctive sporting interior treatmentFinished in Nismo signature coloursTokyo,
Japan (29 November 2011) - Nissan Motor Co., Ltd reveals a bold new
future for its Nismo performance arm. One of the undoubted stars of the
Tokyo Motor Show is the Nissan Juke Nismo, an idea of how a premium
sports version of the hugely successful compact crossover could look. With
its distinctive styling Nissan Juke has redefined the highly
competitive B-segment, but the Juke Nismo Concept is even more dramatic.
It's lower, wider and has a tougher stance. Even standing still, it's
clearly a performance car. 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. "The
global sales success of Nissan Juke has proved beyond doubt that
customers are looking for something different," said Andy Palmer,
Executive Vice President, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. "The Juke Nismo Concept
takes that idea to the next level. It's energetic, distinctive and
highly desirable." 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
bumpers front and rear, wider fenders and sill side skirts. The
grille pattern has been changed while the tailgate spoiler has been
modified by the addition of side elements to control airflow more
efficiently. Even the shape of the door mirrors has been altered to
enhance the car's aerodynamic performance and reduce front and rear lift
without increasing drag. This
reduction in lift means the contact patch of the tyres has been
increased to improve grip, which is further enhanced by the arrival of
stylish new 19-inch alloy wheels. Naturally
the Nismo treatment extends to the chassis which has been lowered and
stiffened using proprietary parts of the sort that will be available
from the expanded Nismo's parts catalogue, while the 1.6-litre direct
injection turbo gasoline engine has been uprated to deliver more power
and performance. And
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 - have been redesigned to provide greater involvement when
driving. Further underlining the performance aspects of the car, special
leather-trimmed bucket seats have been added while the importance of
the tachometer means the dial and needle are illuminated in red. A
feeling of enhanced sporting quality in the cockpit can be attributed
to a toned-down effect applied to previously light coloured surfaces,
while the dramatic centre console - shaped to resemble a motorcycle fuel
tank - has been given a metallic coating to enhance the purposeful
feeling of the Concept. "As
the Concept shows, Nismo brings new levels of individuality to
mainstream Nissan cars like Juke. The future for Nismo is to develop
premium sports designs for an ever-widening range of customers," said
Nismo President, Shoichi Miyatani. "Our
forthcoming range of cars will be just as accessible and innovative as
every Nissan product, but with added Nismo energy they will be even more
fun to own and drive," he added.

I reckon so mate. I don't know how far Mark @ Abbey is with the Juke but they can do wonderful things with the 350Z & 370Z.If you want to be different then you want to be properly different ;)By the way, I know of a Nissan garage just over the water who fitted a Nismo exhaust to a friends 370Z (there is no official way of getting Nismo items for the 370Z in the UK). He just drove over, got it fitted, and drove back! The guys there speak very good English and give great service by all accounts...

I asked David about it too. His take was that Nissan UK wanted the 350Z and 370Z Nismo to come to come over but it wasn't to be. The only way we can make it happen for the Juke is to keep the pressure up IMHO

Looking round the web yesterday I founa an article for US that said the Nismo was likely to have circa 200bhp depending on what mods were made it could be available in under 12 months or if more elaborate mods to engine were done then 2 years+. It also hinted that it would be built @ Sunderland with the necessary Nismo Parts shipped over from Japan. So here's hoping Nissan are looking and build this beauty I for one will be ordering if they do
