Usain Bolt, world-record holder and gold medal winner at the Olympic Games over the 100 and 200 meter sprints, experienced a special day in Maranello this past week where he was able to test the 458 Italia and 599 GTB supercars around the famous Fiorano circuit.
The sprinter was excited in the cars as a passenger next to the test-drivers Dario Benuzzi and Raffaele De Simone, while later on he completed some laps himself behind the wheel. At the end of the day he couldn’t hide his adoration for the 458 Italia. "It’s a little bit like me, very reactive and determined.”
Later on Bolt joked about the high heartbeat provoked by test-driver Dario Benuzzi, who showed him how to control the car on a wet track. “I was really scared, but it was a good scared. I’m excited like a child,” he said.
