Nissan Juke: Paper Masterpiece

Few cars are as divisive as the Nissan Juke. In fact it is the Marmite of cars – you either love it or hate it. But however you feel about the Nissan Juke’s looks, you can’t deny that it looks good on paper and even better when made from paper. Wait… What?

While paper and cars might not have a lot in common at first thought, most great ideas start on with a piece of paper. But what happens if the process was reversed and a great idea turned back into paper? That is what famous origami artist Owen Gildersleeve did with the Nissan Juke.

To celebrate the fifth anniversary of this unique vehicle, Nissan looked for an equally unique way to create something different. The result? After 200 hours of working carefully folding and cutting more than 2000 pieces of paper and fitting them over a basic frame, Owen was able to create the world’s first life size origami Nissan Juke.

Of course the real Nissan Juke has a lot more under the hood than the origami version – depending on which model you are looking at the 1.2 or 1.6 petrol, or the super economical 1.5dCi diesel, the you’ll find 85, 140 and 81kW waiting for you – a lot more than the paperwork masterpiece. And of course the range of options available to you with a real Nissan Juke start with the basic Acenta to Acenta+ to the Tekna each with an impressive array of options such as sunroof, entertainment systems, 4×4, steering controls and more. You can find all of the options available here in this handy brochure.

If however the only paperwork that you are interested in when it comes to a Nissan Juke is buying a new one, you can find out more about the Nissan Juke here.
