Nissan Tarts Up English Juke with Ministry of Sound Edition

The Ministry of Sound is one of London's largest--and loudest--nightclubs, and the Nissan Juke is a youth-oriented compact crossover. If those two sound like a perfect match, we have a car for you: a dance music-themed Nissan Juke with Ministry of Sound.

It's been a couple of months since Nissan and the famous nightclub/record label first hooked up, which resulted in a pair of Juke CUVs with professional-grade mobile sound systems, dubbed the "Juke Box." This time, Nissan's looking to put the Juke Box in your driveway without making you bankrupt or deaf in the process.

The limited-edition (only 250 will be made, and sold exclusively in the U.K.) car features 17-inch white alloy wheels, white mirror caps, and white door handles, gloss black b-pillar trim (replacing the standard matte black plastic) and a choice of black or white paint. Nissan also affixes a Ministry of Sound badge to the small panel behind the rear door cutout.

On the inside, the black-and-white theme (a nod to the Ministry's color scheme) continues, with black leather seats with white contrast stitching, and a similar motif on the gear shift boot and steering wheel. The gray interior plastic trim is replaced with white trim, and Nissan fits an iPod/iPhone dock to the transmission tunnel, to make accessing and playing music easier.

But the package would be nothing without a larger nod to dance music, so the Ministry of Sound-edition Juke comes with an 8GB iPod Touch (in white, naturally) with an iPod case painted with Infiniti/Nissan's Scratch Shield self-healing paint. That white iPod matches the other special feature: an included pair of MoS-branded headphones. If that’s not enough, Ministry of Sound promises VIP access to their online store to any Juke MoS buyers.

Interestingly, the package doesn't include any upgrades to the on-board sound system. Hardcore dance music fans, then, will want to spec their Juke Ministry of Sound CUVs with the optional Rockford Fosgate system, with six upgraded speakers and one subwoofer.

The 250 dancefloor-ready Jukes are available to order now, for a starting price of $28,106.
