Usain Bolt's GTR

Just saw this. After crashing two M3's he gets a GTR. Hope he has "better luck" now...

i noticed they put a go-pro on the car. Next time we'll have in-car footage of the crash, instead of just post-crash photos.

He was actually pretty quick in the Top Gear reasonably priced car, one of the fastest ever.

He just doesn't have any speed but fast apparently
