Usain Bolt gets a golden GT-R from Nissan
Remember Usain Bold? Of course you do! If you don’t, you probably live under a rock or something. Anyway, it seems that Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt became the brand ambassador for Nissan and as a tribute to his outstanding performance at the Olympics as well as a contribution to the Usain Bolt Foundation, the Japanese car-maker will unveil a special version of the GT-R.
Details about this project are limited but from what we can see from the pictures, the model features a gold exterior, an embossed Usain Bolt signature and gold interior trim. I wouldn’t be surprised if the engine might get tuned-up to produce a little more than the regular version. Also, the vehicle will be auctioned off on Ebay to support the Usain Bolt Foundation which creates educational and cultural opportunities for children in Jamaica.
Furthermore, Nissan officials have announced that a special GT-R Bolt Edition will be available internationally. Nissan’s COO Toshiyuki Shiga, added “Nissan shares the spirit of excitement that captivated worldwide audiences at the Olympics. There is no-one better qualified than Usain Bolt to help us translate that spirit into great experiences.”
