Nissan appointed Osaka as its brand ambassador after she defeated Serena Williams at the U.S. Open in September this year, to win her first Grand Slam Singles title. She became the first and the only Japan-born tennis player to achieve this feat.


Nissan presented GT-R Nismo to Osaka last month upon winning the title and now she’s got a special edition GT-R designed and built in her name. As the new Global Ambassador, Naomi Osaka helped select the exteriors colors of the special edition model. There are a total of three exteriors color choices available, including Brilliant White Pearl, Midnight Opal, and Meteor Flake Black Pearl, which can be clubbed with any of the three available interiors trims - red, tan, and cream.
