Netflix "Fastest Car" Series Taps Supercar Owner Bryan L. Salamone
Long Island divorce lawyer and Lamborghini enthusiast makes his drag-racing debut
With "Fastest Car," Netflix offers a distinctly American twist to the David and Goliath story. The shows feature battles between true "gearheads,"
Mr. Salamone said he embraced his role "in the spirit of competition"
Still, there was a limit to how far Salamone could go as a Netflix nemesis: "Many of [the sleeper car owners] have had a rough go, as targets of bullying or because of physical challenges. But they have such passion for their cars. You can't help but respect them and root for them even as you're trying to beat them. We came away with a great deal of mutual respect."
Mr. Salamone doesn't intend to do more drag racing, though he'll "take a rematch any time." But he will continue to use his Lambo to raise money for charity, at upcoming events like the goldRush Rally and the Gumball 3000. In 2018, he will be appearing in supercar events in 15 cities spread out through the United States, Europe, and Asia.
