It’s a partnership that few could have envisioned. Margot Robbie has been revealed as Nissan’s new electric vehicle (EV) ambassador, and the occasion was marked by the Suicide Squad actress racing Nissan’s radical all-electric BladeGlider prototype around the famous Monaco GP circuit.

Robbie, who also starred in The Wolf of Wall Street, put the 190 km/h three-seater through its paces around the closed Monaco street circuit before racing another BladeGlider. The pair of 272 PS/707 Nm cars raced through the Principality’s iconic tunnel and diced with each other along Massenet before finishing in the glamour of Casino Square.

In the video above, the 26-year old Aussie beauty is also seen demonstrating the drifting prowess of Nissan BladeGlider around one of the most famous corners in the world of motorsport – the Fairmont Hairpin.

“There are only two of these in the world, so, perhaps take it easy?” the system asked, to which Robbie replied “No.” in the cutest way possible. Watch it, as we did more than once.

The prototype, which hits 100 km/h from rest in less than five seconds, exists to challenge the conventional thinking of what an all-electric sports car could look like in the future, Nissan says. It’s part of the company’s Intelligent Mobility vision of how cars should be driven, powered and integrated into society. Nissan is of course the maker of the Leaf, the world’s best-selling EV.

“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. Having Margot on board will support us in spreading news of the personal and societal benefits of electric vehicles to more people than ever before,” said Gareth Dunsmore, director of EVs for Nissan Europe.

The latest BladeGlider, a development of the concept we saw at Tokyo 2013, will be on display at the Geneva show next month.
