Nissan has launched a full-size origami car, to celebrate the Juke model’s 5th birthday.

Designed by artist Owen Gildersleeve, the model was built by hand using more than 2,000 pieces of paper.

Gildersleeve says: “As a celebration piece, it draws on so many influences, such as the origami focus inspired by Nissan’s Japanese roots.”

The origami Juke was revealed to coincide with World Origami Days, taking place internationally between 24 October and 11 November.
