Naomi Osaka joined Nissan as a global brand ambassador last September after becoming the first Japanese player in history to ever win in the women's singles Grand Slam title last September 8. As the brand's newest ambassador, Nissan has given the 21-year old champion's a more suitable ride in the form of a 600 PS 2018 Nissan GT-R NISMO.
Since signing on with Nissan as a brand ambassador, Osaka will be appearing in global promotions and advertising for Nissan. Meanwhile, the Japanese automaker will also be supporting her in tennis activities. The GT-R NISMO daily driver is just one such example of Nissan providing her with vehicles for her various needs.
The GT-R NISMO driven by Osaka is painted in Super Silver. This being the range-topping NISMO variant, it is also the most powerful. The 3.8-liter twin-turbo VR38 produces 600 PS and 652 Nm of torque. It is also fitted with the a more aggressive aero kit, 20-inch forged alumnium wheels, and NISMO tuned suspension. Nothing but the best for the first Japanese Grand Slam champion.
Based in Boca Raton, Florida, she will be using the GT-R NISMO as her new ride going to and from tennis training, practices and even other events. This being a GT-R, it allows her to get there faster than ever before... well as fast as she's legally allowed to drive on the street, that is.
As the GT-R still has a real trunk space, it is more than capable of carrying all of the tennis balls, racquets, and equipment she needs in order to further hone her craft. Talk about a fast daily driver.
