What were you doing when you were 13?
It was probably something awkward that you don’t remember or care to remember, but one 13-year-old is making us all feel very inadequate all of a sudden with a feat that grown adults can be jealous of.
Steven Aghakhani is 13 and races all sorts of cars, including McLarens, Lamborghinis and a Porsche 918, and this past Father’s Day, he hit 202 mph in a modified Bugatti Veyron. The 8th grader surpassed his personal best speed of 195 mph and he did it because wanted to hit a new top speed for his father. His dad said Aghakhani wanted to hit 210 mph on his next run.
When asked how he felt leading up to his run on an airstrip, he responded with a nonchalant, “It should be easy.”
Aghakhani started karting when he was 7 and things escalated quickly from there. His father, Armik Aghakhani, is also a serious car collector and racer.
Pretty cool for a kid who isn’t even old enough to have a driver’s licence.
