Denver-area Maserati salesman, 24, killed driving one at "reckless speeds" after post

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – A young Maserati salesman outside Denver was killed driving one of the high-performance and high-price sport cars shortly after posting a Facebook live video showing him going from zero to 110 miles per hour in 20 seconds.

CBS Denver reports the driver was identified as 24-year-old Brandon Gionapoulos, a salesman for the Mike Ward Maserati and Infiniti dealership in Highlands Ranch, a suburb south of Denver.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said “reckless speeds” were a contributing factor in the crash.

Hours before the wreck was discovered, around 7:25 p.m. on Friday, Gionapoulos posted a soundless Facebook Live video showing the dashboard of a Maserati. The short video shows the vehicle going from zero to 111 miles per hour in just about 20 seconds, and then ends. As a salesman, Gionapoulos reportedly had access to the luxury sports cars, which normally cost over $100,000.


He was recording a video live on facebook before the crash its on the link (Click if you wish)

Why would a salesman be testing the car like this? The dealership should have gotten him a safer location to carry out this stunt if they wanted the publicity that badly. What a sad waste of a life so full of potential. Let's just hope that people will allow the family to mourn in peace.

Welcome...I drove a SQ4 when my GT MC was getting worked on. An excellent car for the price.
Is that what you own?

Just in case you need to be reminded why....

I just don't understand how an obviously intelligent and well thought of person, like this man,
could act so recklessly...
It's so sad.
