Nissan GT-R Spec Bolt

A very fast man gets a very fast car. Nissan’s honorary ‘Director of Excitement,’ Usain Bolt, has taken delivery of a Nissan GT-R Spec Bolt, a model that has been tailored specifically for the Olympic gold medallist.

Bathed in exclusive gold paint and based on the 2014 GT-R, the car was presented to Bolt at his home training facility in Jamaica. It has been customised to suit the Jamaican’s driving style, based on the data Nissan engineers recorded during his test drive of the GT-R line-up when he visited the company headquarters last October.

Sitting on 10-spoke RAYS aluminium-alloy forged wheels, the Nissan GT-R Spec Bolt features a flamboyant white interior, a BOSE audio system and a ‘Spec Bolt’ emblem – all chosen by the 26-year old himself.

Late last year, a separate gold-painted GT-R was unveiled as the grand prize in an online global charity auction to benefit the Usain Bolt Foundation, which helps create opportunities for Jamaican youth. The winner is expected to take delivery of this car later this year.

The 2014 Nissan GT-R carries a 3.8 litre twin-turbo V6 that produces 545 hp at 6,400 rpm and 627 Nm of torque between 3,200 and 5,800 rpm. It has a top speed of 315 km/h and completes the century sprint (!) in under three seconds. Let’s hope he’ll be careful with this one…
