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 is ready to serve up its latest concept vehicles at the next month. Brand ambassador and Japanese tennis Grand Slam champ 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 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 tie-up. It's the latest in a string of 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 car, and a handful of other cool toys that will probably never make it to our shores.
