Man Banned From Driving After Doing 181mph in an Aston Martin Vantage Carbon Black (Video)

If you've ever done something wildly fun and stupid and recorded then uploaded it to YouTube, then you should feel at least some pity for Erik Paris of Belgium. The video above comes from Mr. Paris, the proud owner of an Aston Martin Vantage Carbon Black, who decided that the Belgium E17 highway's speed limit wasn't doing his magnificent 6-liter V-12 engine justice and proceeded to hit speeds in excess of 180mph. Stupid, dangerous, and essentially a very douchebag move on the part of Mr. Paris, but the real douchebag award goes to the friend who uploaded the video. Belgian authorities found the footage and hit him with a 30-month countrywide driving ban as punishment.
