Usain Bolt buys Nissan GT-R image

The famous Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has recently bought himself a brand new car, a Nissan GT-R, becoming the fastest man ever to own this Japanese sports car.

After being involved in some accidents with his BMW M3 over the years, the 26-year old Jamaican sprinter has decided to enter a new league, which is supercar performance for sports car money and what better vehicle to do just that than the world famous Nissan GT-R. Hopefully his driving skills have improved by now and we won’t get a chance to write about a new car crash over the following months.

As a quick reminder, the 2013 Nissan GT-R has a base starting price set at 96,820 USD in the United States and the sports car is coming with some interesting items compared to the previous model year, but the most important upgrade is the extra power offered by the V6 engine. According to the Japanese based automaker, the 2013 Nissan GT-R is still getting the 3.8 liter V6 unit which is now developing a total output of 545 HP, with a peak torque of 627 Nm (463 lb-ft), 15 HP and 15 lb-ft (20 Nm) more than the previous version.
