Nissan will start taking orders Dec. 20 for a special edition Nissan GT-R launched to commemorate the company’s partnership with tennis Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka. You might be familiar with the name especially after the whole controversy between Serena Williams and her after Naomi Osaka beat her in a tournament. The outburst from the US champion made extreme headlines worldwide.
Still, this is about the Nissan GTR, the Godzilla. Nissan plans to build up to 50 of the cars, with tailored specifications based on the Nissan GT-R Premium edition grade. The model will come with three body colour options including Midnight Opal, Brilliant White Pearl and Meteor Flake Black Pearl.
Osaka, who joined Nissan as a brand ambassador shortly after becoming the first Japanese tennis player to win a women’s singles Grand Slam championship in September, helped match the colour schemes for the special-edition GT-R. Three new colour schemes have been developed for the commemorative model, and they can be combined with any of the body colours.
The car comes with LED high-mount stop lights on the dry carbon rear spoiler and a golden model-number plate in the engine room.
Pricing for the car, to be sold in Japan only, will be announced next month.
