I can picture Batman's wife driving the kids to school in that.

Several months after the movie it's meant to capitalize on has left theaters and created no lingering value except to wrap up the trilogy? Great timing, Nissan.

Not even Robin and his boyfriend would be seen in that thing.
 
2012-12-16 09:26:48 AM
I like it.
 
2012-12-16 09:27:49 AM
Pfft. In the US, we call that the 95 Civic Hatchback that has been painted flat black equipped with a fart tip.

That one? No. This one? I could be convinced.

It's an improvement. I still don't think I like the idea of headlights that protrude above the hood. Seems like they'd be a lot easier to break, and put light places I don't want it at night.

Looks like a Juke customized in flat black paint.

Why is this special?

/The stuff on Jay Leno's garage is much more interesting.

I hate matte finishes on cars. They're a pain in the ass to maintain.

No person with any pride or sense of aesthetically pleasing automotive design would be seen in a Nissan Joke. Er, I mean Juke.

Should that be "Korean porn legend Nuke Jismo"?

It's not about the headlights. It's about what's hiding underneath that hideous exterior. The "R" and the wheels should give it away.

Oh, they do. But as you aptly noted, it still has a hideous exterior.

/Friends with a couple current or former owners of 1980s-vintage "Shelby" econoboxes from Dodge, knows about ugly little cars that go fast.

I... actually think Jukes are cute. Weird as hell and not really for me, but they make me smile. They're like cartoon characters on the road.
 
2012-12-16 10:07:56 AM
I'd drive that if they gave it to me. Alas, I'm not a UK resident so I'm ineligible for the contest.

I didn't know Nissan bought Pontiac just to re-release the Aztek.
 
2012-12-16 10:12:34 AM
I think it looks cool. Get rid of the stupid bat stuff and I'd be happy driving it... well if it has enough leg/headroom for freakishly tall oaf.

Didn't that happen two years ago, now the default upper-class suburban vehicle is an aztek buick crossover.

Is it one of the ones starting with Enc-? Enclave? Encamp? Encore? Encephalitis? Encrypt? I'm bad at remembering any Buick newer than the Skylark my aunt had when I was a kid.
 
2012-12-16 10:40:54 AM
The headlights on that vehicle look like ingrown toenails.
 
2012-12-16 10:44:14 AM
This isn't a car...

There are some things worth remembering. Buick crossovers I don't drive are not on that list, the names above work for me.

/This is a remarkably ugly period for cars, and note fewer simple sedans and lots of folded sheet metal on every inch of the body.

I'll keep my 2000 Accord, thanks. All it needed was a new stereo with bluetooth and USB and that's taken care of.

Face it, the "Juke" name is the kiss of death for products.

Samsung Juke MP3 Player/phone? Fail.
Nissan Juke car in Batman livery? Fail.

Rename it the Rumsfeld. And sell it for a billion.

That thing is like the anti-Batman.

Also, the original, non-gimmicky design of the car is 10x more "edgy" than its Batcrap edition.

buddy had the 84 moosestang GT gray with matte black mondo-wide hood stripe. drove him farking nuts, he was a nitpicker for keeping things looking clean, decal drove him crazy. he wound up paying a bundle to have it removed and sprayed instead. they didn't look as sharp as the recent models but those 80s stangs went fast as hell.

There is no Buick, just Opel (or some other bland and shiatty globalcar).

That said, if it's a car, it better have no forced air in its fully complemented engine block(I6/V6/H6 minimum). Any less, and it doesnt belong on the open road.
 
2012-12-16 12:24:23 PM

Roto-Rot: Datsun, back when men were men

...and car manufacturers didnt cheat people out of extra cylinders with forced air. If you wanted a turbocharger, you specifically asked it be put on top of a powerful and thunderous engine block.

These days, you have hippies too close to car design for that to happen.
 
2012-12-16 12:33:28 PM
Give me the flat-black paint job and dark wheels (but leave off the Batman logos) on a Nissan GT-R, and we'll talk.
Oh, wait... they (Avus Performance) have already done that...

When did making your car look as shiny as a turd come into fashion? That thing looks like it was spray painted at an OWS rally.
