Are you a Gran Turismo super-fan? Do you own all the games? How about loads of merchandise? Chances are most of us on GTPlanet can answer yes to all three questions. But now there’s bigger, more expensive collector’s item to add to your GT shrine with the announcement of the Nissan Juke GT Sport PlayStation.
Nissan and Gran Turismo have a good relationship. This is why it’s not all that surprising that a Nissan model is carrying the branding.
Don’t worry if the Juke confuses you a bit. We were confused as well when we saw the small crossover — especially since it’s nowhere to be found among the 160 vehicles that grace the GT Sport car list. At least the Mazda offered in the GT Super Bundle is found in the game.
We’re sure it has to do with the considerable price the GT-R commands, but at the same time, it would be nice to see more of a connection.
For those that don’t care about the choice in vehicle and only want one of the most expensive Gran Turismo collectors’ items, you’re in luck. 500 special edition Juke GT Sport PlayStation crossovers will hit the showroom floor. However, we’ve only been able to find evidence of it releasing in Spain and Portugal, which slims the market down a bit.
So what does the Juke GT Sport PlayStation come with? With a choice in either Ultramarine Blue or Pearl White, you get 18-inch wheels, PlayStation graphics, and Tokyo Black accents. Unique badging and a shark fin antenna round out the exterior changes.
On the inside, you get GT Sport floor mats and custom faux carbon fiber door sill protectors.
Finally, you also get a PS4 Slim 500GB and your own copy of Gran Turismo Sport. This isn’t the first time Nissan’s offered such a package, either. Back in 2005, it sold the 350Z GT4, which came with a PlayStation 2 and — you guessed it — a copy of GT4 in the trunk.
Prices for the Nissan Juke GT Sport PlayStation start around 18,378€ ($21,400). One lucky person will drive away with the Juke at no cost though, thanks to a competition sponsored by Nissan.
To enter you need to sign up on the PlayStation League website. From there you need to participate in Free for All races where winners will advance through several rounds.
Once the rounds finish, the top 16 players will face off in one last race at Gamergy, the biggest esports event in Spain. The winner of the race will drive off with their very own Juke GT Sport PlayStation.
For all the rules you can check out this website. However, as the competition is in Spain, it’s entirely in Spanish.
We know there are several extremely fast racers from Spain, the home of Lucas Ordóñez. So if you happen to live on the Iberian Peninsula give the contest a go. We’ll be cheering you on!
