Bolt Edition R35 GT-R

Nissan built a special Spec Bolt edition GTR for Usain Bolt, and offered to build another for a winner of a charity Auction. Usain Bolt's personal car (VIN=UsainBoltPersonal above) has Gray Wheels, Spec Bolt badge and White Egoist style interior. It wears the licence plate 7300GJ (Jamaica) and is still in Jamaica and owned by Usain Bolt (Dec, 2016).
To promote the charity eBay auction, another gold GTR (VIN=UsainBoltAuction above) was put on display. This car has grey chrome wheels, no Bolt Spec badge and black interior with red accents along the edge of the seat. It wears the display licence plates "MR BOLT". Current location is in the Nissan Heritage Museum, Zama (Dec, 2016).

The auction clearly states, "Once the winning bid is final, your GT-R® will be built to your region’s specifications and requirements, and then delivered to the nearest dealership."
The winner of the auction was Rod Maher of Australia and this car is an Australian Specification R35 GTR (VIN=JN1GANR35A0450016) and this car has gold wheels, black interior with no red accents and no Bolt Spec badge. It now wears the licence plate GLDZLR (Victoria) and still appears to be owned by Rod in Melbourne, Victoria (Dec, 2016).
