Aston Martin V12 Carbon Black Edition gets a two-and-a-half year ban driving in Belgium after hitting 292 km/h on the highway.

The video above was recorded by the passenger of a rare Aston Martin V12 Carbon Black Edition that at one point managed to hit a speed of 292 km/h (181 mph) on the E17 highway located in Belgium. Behind the wheel was Erik Paris who now probably wishes that his friend never uploaded the video on YouTube.

The reason for this is because after his high speed run on the highway he received a 30-month ban from driving in Belgium, along with a hefty 4,400 euro fine. He was somewhat lucky because the maximum ban in Belgium for this sort of actions is five years.

We don’t know for sure but it seems that Erik decided to sell his Aston Martin after this unfortunate incident.
