Meanwhile in Russia: Trying to Catch an Oncoming Car with Your Hands isn’t a Very Bright Idea…
Let’s say you parked your car on the breakdown lane and you’re waiting outside along with another passenger when all of a sudden, you see a vehicle coming from the opposite side of the road. What do you do?
If you answered, find the “Usain Bolt” hiding within you and make a run for it as fast as you can, we’re with you.
We can’t explain why, but the person (looks like it’s a woman, but we can’t say for sure due to the low quality of the video) featured in this incident literally attempted to catch the oncoming car with her (or his) hands!
Naturally, it didn’t work, but at least no one seems to have been seriously injured.
As part of an extended partnership with Nissan, the world’s fastest man, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, helped develop a one-off GT-R painted in a gold color embossed with his signature and featuring interior fittings finished in real gold.
This specific example,will hit the online auction block at eBay towards the end of October, with proceeds from the sale to benefit the Usain Bolt Foundation that creates opportunities for children and young people at his home country of Jamaica.
And that’s not all, as Nissan revealed today that the Gold Medal Olympian will soon start working with the brand’s product specialists on a limited-edition run of special GT-R models. The Bolt-branded GT-Rs will be offered worldwide with the Japanese carmaker to announce more details at a later date.
Bolt, who has been appointed Nissan’s new “Director of Excitement”, commented on his endorsement of the GT-R: “Racing is my inspiration, and I want to help Nissan become an even more exciting brand for everyone.”
Nissan on its behalf, is pretty happy to get Bolt on board to further promote the brand.
Usain Bolt test drives Ferrari 458 Italia and 599 GTB at Fiorano
Usain Bolt, world-record holder and gold medal winner at the Olympic Games over 100 and 200 metres, experienced a special day in Maranello, where he tested a 458 Italia and 599 GTB Fiorano on the circuit of the Prancing Horse. The sprinter was excited in the cars as a passenger next to the test-drivers Dario Benuzzi and Raffaele De Simone, while later on he completed some laps himself behind the wheel. At the end of the day he couldn’t hide his love for the 458 Italia. “It’s a little bit like me, very reactive and determined!”
Later on Bolt joked about the high heartbeat provoked by test-driver Dario Benuzzi, who showed him how to control the car on a wet track. “I was really scared, but it was a good scare. I’m excited like a child.” “Today,” Bolt added, “I feel very close to the team. I am sorry for yesterday’s result, but that’s sport, I know what I’m talking about. There are ups and downs, but it’s important to know how to get back on the track and I’m convinced that Ferrari knows how to do that.”
The tour ended with a visit to the atelier, Ferrari’s personalisation area, where Bolt met Ferrari CEO, Amedeo Felisa.
