Fabspeed Expands Its Family! A Warm Welcome to Jaret Campisi.
Some people like to keep business and family separate, but here at Fabspeed we consider all our employees and partners family. When PA local Jaret Campisi reached out to us for an exhaust for his new Audi R8 V10 Plus, we were blown away by all the incredible car and bike builds he had already done and we thought he would be a great addition to the family!
Some of you may recognize Jaret and his girlfriend, Christina, from Battle of the Fittest Couples, a reality competition show where 12 athletic couples competed for a $100,000 grand prize. Jaret has been a social media powerhouse ever since, posting about his insane motorcycle builds on his YouTube channel. Jaret’s love for all things fast inevitably led him right to Fabspeed once he took possession of his Audi R8.
Now that Jaret’s part of the Fabspeed family, we sat down with him to get to know him a little better.
Q: Where are you from, what got you into cars, and how did it all come about for you?
A: "I grew up in Mechanicsburg which is a small town outside of Harrisburg in Pennsylvania. I actually started loving cars when I was super young...I'd say 5 or 6. We had a bunch of micromachines and my favorite was this super cool silver Lamborghini Countach. And actually that Christmas I got a Porsche 911 remote control car and my brother got a lambo and I was literally pissed and threw a fit about it. I was always in love with the styling of the supercars and when I was finally able to start driving some - that was it for me."
Q: What cars are currently in your garage?
A: "We currently have a 2018 Audi R8 V10 plus, a 2020 Mercedes AMG GTR PRO, 2020 C8 Corvette and our daily is a 2021 Mercedes AMG GLE 53. We also have a BMW M1000RR motorcycle and a Ducati Diavel 1260S Lamborghini Edition."
Q: What is your dream car?
A: "That's a really tough question...I'd say my dream daily driving supercar would be a Lamborghini SVJ and then for something that would be like a drive a few times a year car the La Ferrari or even a Lamborghini Veneno. Ideally, I want to have a nice collection and just take out different cars depending on my mood that day."
Q: What is your go-to mod?
A: "Exhaust and tune hands down. With how restrictive regulations are these days letting that engine scream and breath makes a massive difference. The different sounds of the engines are one of my favorite things about driving so that is the first thing that has to be done to every car we get."
Q: What is your guilty pleasure?
A: "Does drinking whiskey late at night count? I don't really have any "guilty pleasures" because I'm not really embarrassed about anything I do which may sound chauvinistic but I think loving yourself and owning who you are is very important and I've never understood why that is looked at as a bad quality in our society."
Q: What advice would you give to young car enthusiasts?
A: "Take advantage of social media. We live in a very unique time where you can literally do anything you want thanks to social media. I remember when my parents used to tell me video games were a huge waste of time and now people make millions of dollars playing them while others watch. There is no better time in history to be able to turn a passion into a career thanks to social media, so, if you love cars start sharing your journey on different social media platforms and you can literally pursue that passion for a living."
