Q: What If_Usain Bolt represented Nissan?
A: Naturally, he’d advocate for their fastest car:
The Nissan GT-R.
And so it is. The tall, chiseled three-time Olympic gold medalist from Jamaica has been tapped by Nissan to be the face of their new “What If_” global campaign. As such, Bolt’s likeness has begun showing up on Nissan billboards in airports all over the world. A match made in heaven? Definitely. Bolt, who currently holds the world record in the 100 yard dash, has actually owned a Nissan GT-R since 2009 and says he bought it for its speed and safety. Of course, we’re sure the synergy of the “world’s fastest man” driving the world’s fastest Nissan isn’t lost on him either.
