Bolt is an Olympic sprinter from Jamaica. He is a five-time World and three-time Olympic gold medalist. He holds the world record in the 100 meter, 200 meter, and the 4x100 meter relay. Nissan has teamed Bolt, the fastest athlete in the world, with the GT-R, one of the highest performing vehicles in the world, to ask the question, “What if you had no competition?”

Any driver behind the wheel of the 2013 Nissan GT-R will feel the power that only the GT-R can deliver. The 2013 Nissan GT-R is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged 24-valve V6 engine that generates 545 horsepower and 463 lb-ft. of torque. That powerful engine allows the 2013 Nissan GT-R to go from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and from 0-100 mph in seven seconds flat.

Bolt is the type of individual that can appreciate what the GT-R delivers. "I was looking on the internet and I came across the Nissan GT-R and they were saying it was the best streetcar ever made," Bolt told reporters. "Nissan GT-R is a wonderful car and perfect for me. I love everything in it. I enjoy driving it and I feel completely safe and this is the key thing for me."
