Nissan Hands Over Exclusive Gold-Painted GT-R to World's Fastest Man

As it turns out, the “one-off” gold-colored GT-R that Nissan auctioned last December for US$187,100 with all proceeds going to the Usain Bolt Foundation to assist children in Jamaica, wasn’t exactly a “one-off”, as the man who helped create it, Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt, has also received one for his own collection.

Nissan handed over the special Gold 2014 GT-R to Bolt, who is an official ambassador of the brand, on Sunday, May 5, at the champion’s home training facility in Jamaica.

The delivery of the car was overseen by Jose Román, vice president of Nissan Latin America and the Caribbean. The Japanese carmaker said that there are only two gold-colored (factory) GT-Rs in the world, with the auction winner to receive his car this summer.

According to the company, Bolt’s car was specially customized to suit his own 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 in October 2012.

Besides the gold exterior finish, Bolt’s GT-R also sports a BOSE audio system and 10-spoke RAYS hyper-titanium color-coated, forged wheels, and a two-tone, black and white leather interior.
