Usain Bolt inspired ‘Bolt Gold’ Nissan GT-R delivered to its owner

Usain Bolt inspired ‘Bolt Gold’ Nissan GT-R delivered to its owner

In the car world, the Nissan GT-R is probably the best incarnation of the fast man on earth, Usain Bolt and to solidify this lineage, Nissan had earlier joined hands with Bolt to develop a unique GT-R. The car painted in ‘Bolt Gold’ to celebrate his 2012 Olympic triumph was auctioned earlier as a concept and Nissan has finally delivered the exhibit to its owner in Australia.

The car in context is a replica of the one owned by Bolt himself, and features a pair of unique titanium shaded alloy wheels hand-picked by the athlete along with the paint scheme. While the one owned by Bolt is a 2013 edition of the GT-R, the auctioned piece is a 2014 example and is pegged to a 553PS/627Nm, 3.6-litre twin turbo V6 engine.

In addition to its bright paint finish, the one-off GT-R features a number of gold elements in the cabin that include a special plaque embossed with Usain Bolt’s signature embossed onto it. The auctioned amount of USD 1,87,100 (Rs 1.25 crore) will be donated he athlete’s charitable foundation in his native Jamaica.

Beyond its uniqueness and the glaring paint job, the initiative is believed to be aimed at a noble cause, one that we feel a number of other celebrities and their endorsements can learn from.
