Fans of the Batman franchise and of funky compact crossovers, Nissan may have the contest for you. Next February, the automaker's British arm is giving away a one-off The Dark Knight Rises Juke Nismo to one lucky fan.

The Dark Knight Rises Juke is based off of the new Juke Nismo that was revealed earlier this year. Designed by the same team that created the bonkers Juke-R, the Juke Nismo sees a raft of aesthetic upgrades, along with a boost in power from 188 hp to 197 hp from the 1.6-liter turbo-four. The Batman-themed Juke will come with a six-speed manual and front-wheel drive. Nissan has also upgraded the suspension and interior for the Juke Nismo.

Outside, The Dark Knight Rises edition car is painted in matte black, which accents the Juke Nismo's wider fenders, body kit, and rear diffuser. Red accents outline both front and rear diffusers, as well as the black-painted 18-inch wheels. There are also a plethora of bat logos peppered about the car – the caped crusader's logo appears on the front grille, rear haunches, and seats. Better yet, this special Juke also projects the bat signal in two places: onto the ground under the door mirrors and uplit into the headlining.

Since Nissan isn't actually selling The Dark Knight Rises Juke Nismo, it hasn't put a price tag on the crossover. Instead, fans who want to take home the one-off have to "take the Thrill Test" at www.builttothrill.co.uk to enter. Sorry, U.S. Batman fans, the competition – and the car – are for U.K. residents only.
