Nissan has come up with yet another special edition of the GT-R. Crated to celebrate the brand’s partnership with tennis Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka, who joined the company as an ambassador this fall, it will be available only in its home market and limited to just 50 examples.
The tennis champ helped the automaker come up with three exterior color schemes for the special edition GT-R called Midnight Opal, Brilliant White and Meteor Flake Black Pearl.
Elsewhere, the Japanese sports car comes with LED stop lights on the dry carbon rear spoiler, plus a plate with each car’s serial number in the engine bay to further emphasize that it’s a limited run, while pricing will be announced next month.
Meanwhile, Nissan is developing the next generation GT-R. It’s thought to arrive early next decade, with entirely new underpinnings and probably an electrified powertrain, which could combine a new twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine with one (or more) electric motors.
A KERS-like system is reportedly one of the options being considered, but in any case the total output should be in excess of 600 horsepower.
