Who's BS Got Taken for a Joyride?

Hopefully not, but that's what the comments in the video make it sound like..

"I'd turn the traction control off but I don't want to wreck the guys tires" - sounds like it was already sold to someone

Sounds like it was getting broke in properly to me.

Until I heard the guy bounce it off the rev limiter for 5 seconds lol.

It's a Canadian car.. Ontario somewhere looks like.. I predict big drama over this.

These guys are gonna face some serious consequences.

Similar thing happened a few months ago when 2 BMW employees took a 1M on a joyride. The really got into some deep **** after that video surfaced.

Here is the link.

I looked up the company in google maps, that company sign is shown while they are leaving the dealership through its back entrance.



If you follow the street in google street view, you will see that this should be "Star Motors" in Ottawa.

Correct me if im wrong!

Yep, this is definitely Star Motors from Ottawa. I presume it's the white BS with track pack they just sold to a customer. It might be the owner of the car taking it for a test drive. (??)

i don't think it is the owner, as the driver is talking about the owner in 3th person "I don't want to wreck the dudes tires".

Also I don't think think the owner of this car would show the passenger how properly the rev limiter pops in for almost 5 sec on a brand new engine...

I stand corrected.. I've spoken to my friend who works in that dealership.. And he told me it was the mechanics doing a test drive. It's bad as u would think a test drive means no joy ride.

This is ridiculous...I want to know what the dealer is going to do about this and what consequences these jerks are going to face.

I would be so upset! Someone needs to download this video so they guy can't remove it and send it in to jalopnik.. they love stuff like this!

ps. If it is in ontario they clearly went 50 over in a 50 since the guy goes that was a 0-60 (referring to 0-60 mph ~100km/h) right as they pass a 50km/h sign. That would warrant an impound by police! Then they say something at 7:08 about "getting the **** kicked out of it for 30kms" -definitely referring to the car.

these idiots struck out all at once

strike 1 - joy riding someone elses BS
strike 2 - they film the joyride
strike 3 - they upload it to YOUTUBE

they are definately out (out of their mind and hopefully out of a job)

it amazes me sometimes how stupid people can be

Dude was saying the gear doesn't automatically up shift when it hits the red line in the manual mode. Usually, cars automatically up shift for you even though you are in manual mode to save your engine.

Then he proceeds to drive it at the redline for a bit!
