Many of you may know who the ‘World’s fastest Man’ is, for those who don’t know, it is Usain Bolt. Usain Bolt has Gold Medals in Olympics and is the holder of World Records for 100 Meter and 200 Meter as well. He is the fastest man on feet and he has a thing for speed, you know what else is speedy? A Gold Nissan Gtr, which is given to Usain Bolt by Nissan as a gift. I guess the Golden color of GTR reminds him of his Gold medals at the Olympics, so it suits him pretty well. The Gold Edition is limited to two cars only, one that has been sold in auction to an Australian, to raise money for charity for Usain Bolt’s Foundation to provide opportunities for the kids of his country, Jamaica. Other one is just delivered to his island home in Jamaica.

The level of detailing he manages to give to his sculptures is truly amazing, have a look at some of his work and see if you think the same?
Remember how we declared LaFerrari the car of the decade? We guess there is one more variant of it coming and it is confirmed by autocar who managed to get an interview of Flavio Manzoni, cheif designer of the car. According to Flavio Manzoni a particular design which he liked was put on hold for the making of LaFerrari, and now it will go into production on a limited basis. The car would be a true limited edition, means less than 10 cars would be made and the price tag will be between £3 million and £5 million. Keeping in view the price tag we wonder what is it that Ferrari is going to offer into this car. I mean they named the previous model LaFerrai which means the ultimate one, but now it isn’t!
