THE RETURN - A Turbo Lexus IS300 Love Story (174mph)
WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT ANY SPEED SEEN IN THIS VIDEO. I HAVE DONE JAIL TIME
AND SPENT TONS OF MONEY DUE TO MY HABIT.
A lot of shit runs thru your head at 174mph. Like (1) all the things you
wanted to do in life that you didn't get to and I swear (2) I should have
french kissed that girl in 2nd grade at the swing set. (3) I should have
never left Antarctica and (4) I'm running out of road real quick. With the
car in 6th gear and plenty of RPM's left I ran out of road to push her faster.
The day I took my car to 174mph, later that night Ryan Dunn flipped his
2007 Porsche 911 GT3 doing 140mph in West Goshen, Pa. Again, I do not
recommend anyone doing this kind of speed.
RIP Ryan Dunn
This video goes out to all of the closet nerds, awkward hipsters, and
straight up geeks that got made fun of their whole life. Those that sit in
their laboratories by themselves cooking up hot meals to feed the masses. I
feel your pain. I do what you do. -Jerry Ascione
THE RETURN is a love story between a boy and his car, ALexus; a 2003 turbo Lexus IS300. Much more than just a
short video with hot chicks and a fast car (which isn't a bad thing).
Anyone who has ever driven a turbo Lexus
IS300 knows exactly what I am talking about.
This is the return of my car with more than a year of me being out of
commission. Plagued with jail time, court costs, impound fees,
racing/speeding tickets, court ordered suspension, and attorney fees; I was
determined to get her back running and showcase a little of her talent.
