Lance Armstrong in a Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet

We can thank the explosion of social media for many things. The most recent is the photo above of famed cyclist Lance Armstrong in the driver’s seat of the upcoming 2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet. 

The image, and others, are posted on Nissan’s Facebook page and were taken at a Nissan event in California.

Since it’s one of the first in-the-wild shots of the controversial convertible/crossover, we thought it worthy of posting. The fact that the Nissan spokesman and seven-time Tour de France winner is behind the wheel is just an odd bonus.

There’s a bonus picture of Armstrong behind the wheel of the Nissan Leaf and it appears to be going 94 mph. Although, maybe the cyclist has it switched to kilometers.




Seems like it IS in km/h when you zoom in on the pic.

The 2011 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet is not a bad looking cross over, I think it would look better in red or black, but it is a convertible. Maybe it could use some chrome or more details on the side maybe even a spoiler, just my opinion.

Very sloppy reporting: That's Armstrong driving the Leaf and it is 94 MPH. Here's the real story:

Sorry meant to type That's not Armstrong driving the Leaf


For some reason I do not see Lance Armstrong as a "car guy". Can't imagine a cyclist pitching cars. I sure hope this is not their ad campaign for the CrossCabriolet.


Positive that that is not Armstrong behind the wheel.


Thats Levi Leipheimer behind the wheel. You dont even have to be a cyclist to know that.
