Japanese multinational automaker, Nissan has built a limited edition of the GT-R finished in real gold for sprint legend Usain Bolt's youth charity.

On seeing the Bolt-GTR, Bolt was reportedly so impressed that he has now asked Nissan to build another for his personal collection.

According to the report, the car's interior fit-out has been finished in gold, and is embossed with Bolt's signature, reports.

Bolt was roped in by Nissan for the GT-R's ad campaign during June this year, following which the firm released an advert running by the slogan of 'no competition', likening GT-R's speed to the Jamaican superstar's incredible sprinting skills.

The special gold-plated GT-R will be auctioned at an eBay auction site to benefit the Usain Bolt Foundation for supporting the youth. (ANI)
