As TMR’s earlier spy photos revealed, the new special gets its own version of Nismo's new styling, including heavily re-designed and vented bumpers at both ends.
There’s also red-highlighted under-spoilers and skirts, again reminiscent of Nismo’s latest offerings, and a large centre-mounted twin exhaust arrangement.
Rounding out the exterior tweaks is a sizeable tailgate spoiler and large open alloy wheels in front of a meaty performance braking package.
Nismo has revealed little in the way of the all-important power and performance details, although it has confirmed that a modified sports suspension package is featured.
As for power, that remains a secret.
Nismo's earlier Pulsar sedan concept featured a 179kW 1.8 litre turbocharged engine, although it has yet to confirm production plans for that model.
However, Nissan’s 140kW 1.6 litre turbo petrol engine - which will join the ‘Pulsar Euro’ range in 2015 and already delivers 160kW in the Juke Nismo RS - is a more likely contender for this new hot-hatch.
And Australia? A Nismo launch under former CEO Bill Peffer seemed to be forever on the periphery of the local arm's plans, but new boss Richard Emery is known to be very interested.
For now, Nismo remains an overseas product. The past year has seen rumblings of expansion plans for the fan-favourite brand, however, so an Australian launch could indeed by on the horizon.
