After the joy of the Olympics the world’s fastest man Usian Bolt has another honour to look forward to, this time on a very different track. Bought to Nissans headquarters Bolt was presented with the new GT-R Gold laced Nissan. In addition to its bright paint finish, this car features a number of gold elements inside its cabin including a special plaque embossed with Bolt’s signature.
The Bolt Gold GT-R has already raised over $190,000 in online Auctions when 1 of the vehicles was sold over an eBay. All proceeds of the auction will go to benefit the Usain Bolt Foundation aimed at helping educational and cultural opportunities for children and young people in the athlete’s native Jamaica.
The Nissan GT-R cars are based on the latest 2013 Nissan GT-R, which still features a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 engine matched to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and driving all four wheels. Peak output of the latest model is 545 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque.
All we know at Jensen Fleet is that this is by far our dream car; if only we could figure out a way to lease this one out, we’re sure there would be a nice queue outside the door.
