Our friends at Nissan just informed us that they’ve launched a new, interactive and design-inspired contest that will give readers the chance to win a Juke vehicle and more! Details on the Juke Studio contest are below.

To enter the contest, interested participants can visit NissanJukeStudio.com and submit a wrap of their design, drawing inspiration from the original work of the 3 artists.

From there, we encourage participants to share their custom wraps with friends, family and other networks to gather votes.

The art will be ranked by the number of votes received for weekly prizes. Our final winner, the wrap that receives the most votes, will receive an actual Juke wrapped in their original design. Not to mention some serious bragging rights.

To hear more about the artists’ designs and inspiration for the Nissan Juke (which has a bold design and three innovative driving modes that set it apart from any other urban vehicle on the road today), check out Nissan’s YouTube page.

  

Amber vs the Nissan Juke

The beautiful Amber takes on the Nissan Juke in an agility contest. That’s right, they found a reason to have a hot model in a bikini run around next to the Juke. Kudos!

It’s all part of a model search contest for the 2011 SI Swimsuit Issue. Nissan partnered with Sports Illustrated to launch the “Model Search” contest to put the spotlight on 8 beautiful up-and-coming models from around the globe, each vying for one spot in next year’s issue. Check back as we post more videos! No model has ever been guaranteed a spot in the issue, until now. From 2/15/11- 3/9/11, consumers will cast their votes to determine which model will become the next SI Swimsuit Issue model by going to here.

  

Nissan Sweetens the offer for Commercial Vans

Time will tell whether Nissan North America’s entry into the commercial van market is a winner but you can’t say they aren’t trying! The NV body on frame vans just recently went on sale and the deals are already out to bring in the sales.

From the Autoblog.com:

“Instead of just dropping cash on the hood, Nissan is instead offering the choice of several no-cost options to help NV buyers convert their vehicles into a cargo-carrying juggernaut. Customers who purchase an NV can choose from a cargo management systems consisting of three 44-inch shelving units, a steel cabin/cargo partition, or an exterior standard roof utility rack or an interior rack for high roof models. NV buyers more interested in marketing than cargo enhancements can opt for a personalized graphics package from Original Wraps that spans up to 70 square feet. And if none of those options sound good, Nissan will cut $300 from the new van’s $24,590 starting price. Hit the jump to read over Nissan’s press release.”

Nissan & Sony Give Gamers the Chance to Go Pro in Real Life

By the time I had watched thirty seconds of that video, I knew Nissan and Sony had done something epic. The two companies have paired up to offer the best Gran Turismo 5 drivers from around the nation a chance at becoming a real world, flesh-and-blood race car driver. Just look at those spinouts. I can’t wait.

Here’s a little clip from the press release:

GT Academy will challenge gamers and racing fans alike across the U.S. to compete in a series of online time trials in pre-selected Nissan vehicles in Gran Turismo 5. Throughout the course of the competition, participants will earn free digital content just for playing, as well as have an opportunity to win prizes for winning regional time trials. The top 32 virtual racers in the country will compete in the live national finals event scheduled for March 2011 to become one of 16 GT Academy finalists. The 16 finalists will compete against each other in a series of challenges, including behind the wheel of real Nissan race cars, for a chance to become a professional race car driver as the GT Academy winner for the U.S. The winner will have the opportunity to train with elite race car drivers at international tracks and race as part of a professional team.

It’s definitely an interesting concept. For more info, check out our post on the Bullz-Eye blog.

  

Nissan goes “personal” with new wraps!

From Auto Guide.com:

Large panel vans are perhaps the ultimate form of mobile blank canvas – the acres of sheetmetal representing the perfect opportunity to install your own logo. Increasingly, companies are using vehicle wraps to market their product or service on their own vehicles and it’s proven to increase public awareness.

Now, Nissan North America is teaming up with Lakewood, Colorado based Original Wraps Inc. to offer specific wrap applications for customers of the new NV commercial van. Original Wraps has developed a software program that allows owners of Nissan’s new commercial van to create their own logos and designs on the Nissan Commercial Vehicle Website. Once the design has been finalized, it can then be printed on 3M Scotchprint Vinyl and shipped to the customer within 7-10 days ready for installation.

“We’re pleased to offer high quality, customized vehicle personalization with hundreds of different graphic designs created specially for the new Nissan NV,” remarked Joe Castelli, vice president, Nissan Commercial Vehicles and Fleet, NNA. “It’s part of our innovative approach to thinking about how our customers use their vans – including as a vehicle for advertising their company and services.”

The program is scheduled to start in January 2011.
