Nissan approached British origami artist Owen Gildersleeve to create a life-size replica of the Juke, its most popular crossover. The idea was to tap onto the company’s Japan routes and build a full-size Juke replica from paper to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the mini SUV.  It took Owen over 200 hours to build the paper Juke, but the outcome is exactly like the original car. Owen finished the paper Juke in collaboration with model maker Thomas Forsyth.

Made from 2,000 separate folded polygons, the life-size model has exactly the same dimensions as the Juke – it has similar lights, grills and even the wheel fenders cannot be differentiated. To create a robust paper SUV, the artists first devised a rigid internal frame and then built upon it with 2000 paper sheets. Leaving you with lesser to imagine, we have embedded the video of the making of the paper Nissan Juke below.
