Recently, the world’s fastest man - Usain Bolt - stopped at Nissan’s GranDrive testing track and Yokohama headquarters where he tested the GT-R. After his little test drive, he was so impressed with the car that Nissan decided to build him a special GT-R painted in gold. This unique GT-R will be auctioned to raise funds for the kids.
This special GT-R features Bolt’s signature embossed on it and comes with a number of trim pieces finished in real gold. The auction will be held on eBay and full details will be announced at the end of October.
When talking about the experience he had with the GT-R, Bolt said: "it was wonderful. We came in and we had a lead car, and we were trying to push him to go faster in the GT-R, and he kept on pushing and pushing until he decided that he was going to just go past him. So, we had a good time coming in. It was exciting for me. Today at the track, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me. I really enjoyed it. I tested two different types of GT-Rs – a sports one and a more luxury one. So, for me, it was really exciting. I can’t explain, it was just joy for me because I like speed and I really enjoy driving fast. So for me to be in the GT-R, as safe as I know it is, and to go as fast as I can go was a wonderful feeling."
