    Now if it were the (aptly named) Diablo...

      Yes it's tragic and the father will forever blame himself for his sons death but there will always be people driving cars that are far above their mental level. This simply made the news because it's an exotic car. Kids with Civics that slap huge mufflers on them think they are race cars all of the sudden and drive like idiots. It's equally suicidal in a slow everyday grocery getter since it's not made to handle, and brake like a high end sports car.

      **edit**
      The article doesn't say he died, just that he was critically injured and that 80% of his body had severe burns. Unless you meant the car is dead (can't argue there)

      PS: The guy in the pic looks a lot older then 18 too

        It's hard enough for adults to refrain from that kind of power but with more hormones than sense asking young guys to show that kind of restraint is asking for trouble. At least these are out of the reach for most of the population but modern super bikes can hit those kinds of speeds even quicker. I'm just glad they weren't around when I was young and dumb.

          The driver died of his injuries a couple days ago.

          I got a fast sports car when I was 16. I got popped doing 100 in a 55 within 6 months. My dad sold the car shortly after that. It's a shame too because I really loved that car.. heck, I still want one.

              Hell I have one now and I occasionally catch myself doing stupid ****, and I'm almost 40. 18 year old me would've been a corpse on day 1. My first vehicle was a motorcycle; I somehow survived until it started getting cold, when my mother offered to trade me the bike for a rusty 1983 Toyota Corolla; she probably saved my life. :P

                  It was no Ferrari, that's for sure. 95 Toyota Supra

                    ummm, for me, the MKIV turbo'd Supra is almost better than a Ferrari lol. And it doesn't take much for those Sups to get into some insane highway speeds; the get up and go from their inline 6 turbos - absolutely ludicrous speeds in such a short amount of time.

                    Your dad should have not sold the supra, Yeah...get it out of your 16 year old hands and saved your life....but, it probably tripled in value...he should have just kept it for himself and if he didn't want any longer, sell it for a house lol.

                    Had a '98 TA WS-6 mildly modded running 11's. Sure do miss it.

                      That was a great character. He pretty much had an idea of what the strike team was about before anyone else. He also had a lot of frustration going on, like in the episode where he choked a cat to death.

                      He was also in Season 1 of Sons of Anarchy.

                        I've heard some great things about the Shield; never gotten around to seeing it, but that quote alone....I will definitely watch it.

                          My parents were older when they had me and my dad didn't know much about cars. His knowledge was limited to 50's models and that was it. They didn't know what a twin turbo really meant. They just knew that it had about the same hp as a TA. Mine was completely stock besides blacked out windows.

                            The Shield is one of the best TV shows period.

                              Watch it when you get a chance. It's a great show with great acting.

                              EDIT: Meant to quote MCAPO about not seeing The Shield. Mistakenly hit post quick reply without quote.
