A limited edition all-gold Nissan LEAF rolled into Louth earlier this month as part of a nationwide celebration of Team GB’s triumph at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and Paralympics Games.
The specially commissioned version of the 100 per cent electric LEAF visited Thurlby Motors in Grimsby Road as part of a celebratory tour organised by Nissan, the official automotive partner of Team GB and Paralympics GB.
The gold LEAF that visited Thurlby Motors was officially unveiled by legendary Olympian and Nissan brand ambassador, Sir Chris Hoy.
An identical gold LEAF will be presented to all Nissan’s athlete ambassadors who have won gold medal in Rio, in honour of their achievement.
Speaking before the Paralympic Games began, Lee Jones (Sales Manager at Thurlby Motors) said: “Everyone at the dealership has been glued to their TV screens throughout the Olympic Games as it really feels like we played some small part in it all.
“We are excited for even more British success as Paralympics GB go on to compete in Rio this month.
“For that reason we were delighted to have the gold Nissan LEAF visit the dealership today, and to be able to send our messages of congratulations and good luck to all of the athletes who make the country so proud.”
