Usain Bolt Ferrari Headquarters

Olympic gold medalist and world record holding springer Usain Bolt took a break from his training today to visit the Ferrari headquarters in Maranello, Italy. Bolt, who is in Italy promoting his new PUMA collection, got behind the wheel of a 458 Italia and 599 GTB Fiorano at the Ferrari headquarters.

Bolt said, "Taking laps in the Fiorano track was a thrill. It's the first time I've had a chance to drive a Ferrari on track and it's a dream come true. I thought I was fast; but, these incredible cars give the word fast a new meaning. You have to respect these machines. Being here at Ferrari headquarters is a memorable experience; there's so much history here. I'm looking forward to getting one of these cars to give me my fix for speed."
