FIGHTING TEMPTATION: A tow-truck driver thought it'd be a good idea to take a Nissan GT-R for a joyride... Image: MotorPress
Pearland, Texas - A tow truck driver found a $110,000 sports car just too tempting and decided to give it a spin after towing it from a Houston-area home.
But the driver was unaware the Nissan GT-R is equipped with a sophisticated system that records video, audio and speed.
The car's owner, Brian Montgomery, was able to watch the video of the joyride after the car was returned to him.
Montgomery told KPRC-TV in Houston that he was having trouble with the car last weekend and decided to have it towed to a Nissan dealership.
The car was taken to the tow truck company instead.

Montgomery says the car recording shows it was driven at 120km/h through residential neighborhoods.
The Pearland Police Department is investigating.
