BOCA RATON, Fla. – Being a Nissan global brand ambassador just got a lot more powerful. Today, tennis Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka upped her garage game with 600 horsepower in the form of a competition-honed, Super Silver 2018 Nissan GT-R NISMO.
Based in Boca Raton, Florida, 21-year-old Osaka will be able to drive to tennis practice as quickly as legally allowed – and thanks to the car's bold, advanced design with real trunk space, with as many balls and racquets as she needs to hone her craft.
Osaka joined Nissan as brand ambassador in September, shortly after becoming the first Japanese player in history to win a women's singles Grand Slam.
