2008 Audi R8: Racing an Aston DB9

June 18, 2008

Between The Big Sleazy and the Texas border we've made a few friends. First was this long haired older guy in his new black on black Aston Martin DB9 droptop. We ran together for a while at about 85 mph and nailed from a roll just once. I'd like say we blew his doors off, but the cars were pretty even...

We also got nice wave and the friendly eyeball from this Louisiana State Trooper. Despite our speed, however, Buford T. Justice just wanted to check out our wheels. The best part? Thirty minutes up the road he nabbed some kid in a Saleen Mustang.

Probably gave him a ticket for poor purchase judgment.
