Toronto teen caught stunt driving Nissan GT-R at 240km/h

Capture

A Toronto teen is in trouble after being caught flexing the muscles of a black Nissan GT-R last Monday night.

According to Ontario Provincial Police, the teenager was travelling 140km/h over the speed limit on highway 407 near Weston road around 10:30 pm. The driver of the speeding vehicle,Vince Lisi, 18, of Kleinburg is facing rather serious charges that include stunt driving, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and failure to surrender a driver’s licence.

The stunt driving teenage driver has since had his Nissan GT-R impounded immediately and his licence suspended for seven days.

Just a few weeks before the incident Lisi posted a photo of his vehicle on Twitter followed by the comment “here come the speeding tickets”.

In Ontario, someone caught going 50 km/h or more over the limit by police faces an automatic six demerit points, road-side vehicle seizure and an immediate seven day licence suspension with additional suspension (of up to two years) upon conviction.

The 18-year-old driver can also face a fine between $2,000 to $10,000 – but something tells me it won’t be long before the reckless driver is back behind the wheel of the $100,000 supercar.
