Margot Robbie took a midnight spin around Monte Carlo to celebrate becoming the new face of Nissan electric cars.

The 'Suicide Squad' star stepped into the driver's seat of the Nissan BladeGlider, an all-electric sports car which can reach 100kph in less than five seconds.

In the short video, Margot can be seen cruising through Casino Square as well as past the iconic Fairmont Hairpin, one of the most famous corners in Formula One racing.

Margot 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.''

Whilst Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles for Nissan Europe, added: ''We want to inspire people to take small steps towards cleaner, safer cities, and working with Margot is the perfect way to do just that.''

And Margot is celebrating a personal milestone too, having recently got married to Tom Ackerley.

A source said of their nuptials: ''The Gold Coast was somewhere she always wanted to get married, given it's where she was raised as a kid, on her grandparents' farm.

''Tom initially wanted to get married in the UK, but he knows how much it means to Margot to tie the knot on home soil and how special it is for her, so he didn't put up much of a fight.

''They decided to marry around Christmas so they could spend time with both their families afterwards, which they've never done before.''

The couple met on the set of 'Suite Française' and live together in London and Margot believes their relationship is so strong because they are open with each other.

She said: ''Over the years, you experience enough situations and your share of heartbreak that you tend to build up defensive walls.

''That happens to most people. The trick is to be able to learn from your previous relationships and become stronger, so that you can allow yourself to be more open and vulnerable again.''
