There's a new Nissan GT-R special edition
Japanese tennis ace is celebrated with 50 redecorated Godzillas
This is a special edition Nissan GT-R. It’s a tribute to Nissan’s latest brand ambassador, Japanese tennis player Naomi Osaka. She currently sits fifth in the world rankings and has helped come up with the colour schemes of the car you see here.
Just 50 will be made, with your choice of three exterior hues – purple, white and black – which can be combined with one of three interior shades – tan, cream and red. Purple’n’tan for us, please.
The Osaka GT-R also gets a new carbon spoiler and a golden model number plate in the engine bay. There are no tweaks to the engine or chassis, but that’s no bad thing. The combination of 562bhp twin-turbo and ATTESA all-wheel-drive is already pretty, um, ace. Sorry.
If you like what you see, though, it’s time to buy a plane ticket to Japan, as Osaka’s GT-R isn’t going to be sold outside of the country she hails from. Which isn’t so ace.
