We had previously brought to you a news piece on Nissan’s plan to develop an Usain ‘Bolt’ version of the Nissan GT-R (Skyline) for the Usain Bolt Foundation to help create opportunities for children and young people in the Olympic Champion's home of Jamaica. The gold GT-R will be auctioned off to the highest bidder on Ebay with the auction taking place on the 22 of December, 2012. The bidding will start at 12:00 GMT on Thursday, November 22, and ends at 11:59 GMT on Sunday, December 2. The bids will only be active in regions where the GT-R is available for sale. All of the proceeds from the auction will go to the Usain Blot Foundation.
"This project excites me because it brings together my passion for speed and excellence, and my desire to help kids and young people," said Usain Bolt. "Thanks to Nissan, all the revenue from the GT-R charity auction will be donated to the Usain Bolt Foundation, which will go directly to children to help develop their education and allow them to participate in sports. It warms my heart to help kids and young people who are in the starting blocks of life, and it would be wonderful if someday this activity leads to a 'Second Bolt.”
