Jackass Ryan Dunn killed in his Porsche
Not really a huge fan of Jackass but I know that those guys have struck gold in doing some crazy stunts for you viewing pleasure. Enough dough, actually to buy stuff like a Porsche 911 GT3 as with the case of Ryan Dunn.
Too bad for Dunn, though, his days of Jackassery and driving his Porsche 911 GT3 have been cut short. Dunn slid off the road and hit a tree. The Porsche then caught fire.
Rumors have it that Dunn was drinking before the incident and was allegedly driving at over 100 mph when his car crashed. He had a passenger with him and both men were killed, suffering severe burns.
100 mph is easy-peasy for the Porsche 911. With a bit of downhill and help from the wind, that car can even blow past 200 mph. Recent incarnations of the Porsche isn’t exactly known to burst into flames spontaneously, unlike the Ferrari 458 Italia during a hot day.
Crashing, however, can change all that. Anyway, RIP, Ryan Dunn. At least he died in a blazing fireball when he got to the pearly gates. True Jackass fashion.
