Nissan Juke Concept Makes Tracks for Tokyo

Brand’s latest concepts also include team-ups with tennis star Naomi Osaka

The match is set and Nissan is ready to serve up its latest concept vehicles at the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon next month. Brand ambassador and Japanese tennis Grand Slam champ Naomi Osaka helped design a funky X-Trail—you know it better as the Rogue—compact crossover SUV that looks like it may have rolled off the set of a Marvel movie. Apparently, the little SUV's matte black and gold exterior was inspired by one of Osaka's favorite hats, and it also sports a black interior with tan leather accents.

Also on display is another partnership with the tennis star, but this one will be offered to the public: a limited-edition Nissan GT-R in Midnight Opal, a tasty shade of dark purple with a tan and black interior that Nissan says Osaka helped choose.

It's also available in white or black, and Nissan says it will build 50 of the special GT-Rs. It features LED high-mounted brake lights on its carbon-fiber rear wing and gets a numbered gold plate under the hood. The car will only go on sale in Japan and pricing will be announced at the show.

Nissan also created the wacky Juke Adventure concept complete with snow tracks and a white, black, and neon green livery that looks like bit like a leftover from Nissan's Star Wars tie-up. It's the latest in a string of tracked vehicles Nissan has created over the past few years. The Juke is no longer available here but continues to be sold elsewhere in the world. The Japanese automaker will also show a boxy "Elgrand Sports Premium Concept" minivan, a Nissan Formula E car, and a handful of other cool toys that will probably never make it to our shores.

From the Editors of SS: Well, well, well, what do we have here? Our Monday morning became a whole lot more interesting waking up to the announcement of a new V-8 Lexus IS, the IS 500 F Sport Performance – but do not call it an IS F. While it uses the same 2UR-GSE mill

As a color choice, we don’t generally see a lot of turquoise on tuner cars; it seems to be a hue favored more by bejeweled sun-loving grandmas with leathery skin rather than Japanese car fans. But the dazzling sheen on Jimmy Tu’s Chrome Turquoise 2015 Nissan GT-R is kind of mesmerizing and possibly the perfect

Cars like this 1996 Civic Type R EK9 are commonly found among the most desired by Honda fans old and young. Sure, it doesn’t carry the dramatic appeal of, say, the original NSX – a car that carries a legion of fans not only enamored with Hondas but car enthusiasts of all types – and

Super Street: It didn’t even make any sense back in 1999 when Honda announced that its S2000 was on its way to dealerships. Knee-deep in all things Honda during an era when the 5th gen. Civic, a monumental hit for Honda’s aftermarket hungry fans was just being followed up by the 6th generation Civic –

From the Editors at SS: It may be from the ‘80s, and never offered in America, and look a little goofy with its ride height hiked up the way it is, but all of that belies the sports car athlete that is the midengined, turbo four-banger, AWD RS200. Made so Ford could go rally racing
