The new Fast & Furious inspired Rick Kelly Nissan

Rick Kelly will run a special livery on his Nissan Altima for this weekend’s Clipsal 500 season opener.

The striking colour scheme promotes the eighth instalment of the Fast & Furious movie franchise – The Fate of the Furious which is released in Australia on April 12.

Kelly’s new look is the result of an exclusive partnership between long-time sponsor Castrol and the popular Fast & Furious brand.

The #15 Altima will showcase a new ice-themed livery which takes inspiration from one of the scenes in the new movie.

“I’m not sure the ice livery will help too much with temperatures inside the cabin, but it certainly looks great,” said Kelly.

“The Fast & Furious movies have been hugely successful and prove there is a massive audience supporting it.

“To be associated with such a franchise is great, and it provides a bit of fun to start the season with.

“It was hugely exciting to announce our new partnership with Castrol at the start of the year, so to be able to align ourselves further with what they’re doing is great.

“I had another movie on the car at Bathurst in 2004 and we won the race, so we’ll see how this weekend goes.”

Kelly will unveil the livery for the first time in opening Supercars practice, scheduled for 0940 local time. comment policy
