It was Athlete Yoshihide Kiryu who appeared along with the Maserati's special limited edition vehicle, which has only one in the world. He was the silver medal at the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympics in the athletic men's 4x100m relay final, and in 2017, that Kiryu set a new Japanese record of 9 seconds 98, the first 9 seconds in Japan. Next to it is the Maserati GranTurismo @ Gran Finale, which has only one special model in the world.
Maserati Japan has appointed Mr. Yoshihide Kiryu as a brand ambassador, and has announced a special limited edition GranTurismo Grand Finale that celebrates his appointment and has only one in the world.

Mr. Yoshihide Kiryu will be the first brand ambassador at the Japanese Athletics. "Maserati has a lot in common with" running. "In training as well, starting from warming up, going up to the second and third speeds, increasing the speed, and increasing the sense of acceleration until reaching the top speed, Cars have always been a part of my life, and my car has always been a part of my life, sometimes as close as seven days a week. It was a space where I myself often talked to my father when I was a student. It's a very private and relaxing time, even if I'm riding alone. I'm very happy to spend time with Maserati. " I said.
Kiryu will be lent a Maserati SUV model, Levante Trofeo. By the way, Trofeo means "trophy" in Italian. "I want to make 2020 a year to get trophies and medals." "I want to regain the Japanese record and raise the value of Kiryu Yoshihide."
