Nissan will create a new GT-R model known as the 'Bolt' after signing a new deal with Olympic champion Usain Bolt, who will continue on as the manufacturer's brand ambassador.

Olympic sprinting champion and world-record holder Usain Bolt will join up with car manufacturers Nissan to make a new GT-R model known as the 'Bolt'.

The Jamaican runner, who won three gold medals at the London 2012 Olympic Games, put pen to paper on a new deal with Nissan to continue as their brand ambassador.

"Racing is my inspiration, and I want to help Nissan become an even more exciting brand for everyone," said Bolt.

Chief operating officer Toshiyuki Shiga added: "Nissan shares the spirit of excitement that captivated worldwide audiences at the Olympics.

"There is no-one better qualified than Usain Bolt to help us translate that spirit into great experiences."

Nissan have created a gold-painted GT-R, which will be auctioned off to raise money for the Usain Bolt Foundation.
