So the Nismo Juke isn’t hot enough for you? Well here you go, the Nissan Juke Nismo RS.
Power rises to 215 BHP from 200, torque gets a 30 Nm boost to 280 Nm. Ride has been improved by strengthening the chassis to increase torsional stiffness along with revised springs and dampers.
To keep that power on the ground all two wheel versions will get a much needed Limited Slip Diff.
Gearbox wise you have the option of a 6 speed manual or a 8 speed Xtronic with paddle shift.
Brakes have been upgraded to 320 MM from 296, making them less resistant to fade under repeated use, the rear discs are now ventilated too.
Providing a much needed acoustic soundtrack is a larger diameter muffler and a retuned exhaust system.
Externally the Nismo RS features red brake, RS badging, lower front and rear bumpers, wider winds and sill side skirts as well as a dark chrome V grille.
The Nismo RS also benefits from the upgrades the facelift Juke has received, new front and rear lights (meaning the RS has two sets of DRL’s!) and new smaller wing mirrors with built in LED turn signals.
The Nismo RS can be optioned with:
- Recaro bucket seats
- Xenon headlights
- Nissan around view monitor
Colours include: White Pearl, Black Metallic, or Silver Grey.
Pricing and further details will be made available later in the year.
