A perfect match: Naomi Osaka and the Nissan GT-R

November 14, 2018

She’s quick and agile on the tennis court. Now, she can be so on the road as well (within legal limits, of course). We refer to the newest Women’s Grand Slam tennis champion, Naomi Osaka, who  is the latest brand ambassador of Nissan Motor Company.

As the face behind the brand, Osaka now drives the 600hp GT-R NISMO. The car, despite being a superfast performance machine, also has usable trunk space that’s perfect for loading up all of Naomi’s gear. Tennis racquests and balls will surely fit as she heads for practice and games in Boca Raton, Florida, and elsewhere in the country.

Naomi, however, is no stranger to the Nissan brand. She practically grew up with a Nissan Quest, which her Dad used to ferry her to tennis practice. This is why she somehow feels at home with the GT-R and the marque as well.

And with its bold looks, the GT-R complements the image of a young and athletic tennis star like Osaka. The first ever Japanese payer to win the prestigious title truly personifies the Nissan as it is one of the most coveted supercars to come out of the rising sun.
