Nissan has teamed up with Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt to create a one-off GT-R.

Details are limited, but the model features a gold exterior, an embossed Usain Bolt signature and gold interior trim. The car will be auctioned off on eBay to support the Usain Bolt Foundation which creates educational and cultural opportunities for children in Jamaica.

Nissan also announced they will create a special GT-R Bolt Edition which will be available internationally.

Unsurprisingly, Bolt will extend his role as brand ambassador and become Nissan's honorary "Director of Excitement." According to COO Toshiyuki Shiga, "Nissan shares the spirit of excitement that captivated worldwide audiences at the Olympics. There is no-one better qualified than Usain Bolt to help us translate that spirit into great experiences."
