Hollywood star Margot Robbie has taken one of the world’s most high-tech sports cars for a spin around the famous Monaco GP circuit.
The Suicide Squad and The Wolf of Wall Street even found the Drift mode on the Nissan all-electric BladeGlider as she tackled the tricky track.
The zero-emission motor, will hit 60mph in under five seconds and go on to a top speed of just under 120mph.
Margot has been unveiled as Nissan’s new electric vehicle (EV) ambassador in a bid to attract a new audience to the electric revolution that is taking place in motoring.
The three-seater prototype is the Japanese maker’s vision of how electric sports car could look like in the future.
Margot Robbie, 26, put the radical model though its paces around the closed Monaco street circuit before racing another BladeGlider.
The pair of 272PS performance cars raced through the iconic Tunnel and diced with each other along Massenet before finishing in the glamour of Casino Square.
After finding the button to turn on the system she is also seen demonstrating the drifting prowess of Nissan BladeGlider around one of the most famous corners in the world of motorsport – the iconic Fairmont Hairpin.
Margot Robbie said: “It’s a really exciting time for electric vehicles. More people are choosing to go electric, leading the way to a more sustainable future and the Nissan BladeGlider hints at the future of smarter performance cars.”
As the manufacturer of the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, the LEAF, Nissan is also promoting its technology to harness the power of battery technology from electric vehicles to power homes.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles for Nissan Europe: “The electric revolution is happening. As the global leader in electric vehicles, and with mass adoption just around the corner, it is more important than ever that we showcase all of the benefits of driving an electric car – from energy efficiency, to sustainability, from handling to performance.”
The Nissan BladeGlider will be on display at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show from 7th to 19th March 2017.
