After auctioning off the first gold Nissan GT-R for $193,000 with the proceeds benefitting Usain Bolt’s charity, the Japanese automaker has handed the keys to a brand new 2014 Nissan GT-R for Mr. Bolt to enjoy himself.

Known as “the world’s fastest man,” Usain Bolt has been promoting brand awareness for Nissan and already owns a GT-R. Now he has a second one in a special “Bolt Gold” finish. The GT-R has also been customized to fit Bolt’s driving style, based on data Nissan engineers gathered when he test-drove the GT-R lineup at the automaker’s headquarters last October.

Contrasting the flashy gold exterior is a white interior, while the hyper-titanium shaded wheels add a bit of extra flair to the aesthetics. A subtle touch includes an exclusive “Spec Bolt” emblem on the body of the vehicle. The interior color, exterior color, and all of the vehicle’s accessories were selected by Bolt himself.

The handover took place on May 5, 2013 in Jamaica at Bolt’s home training facility.
