Meet Levent Karadöl. After suffering from a disease at just 7-months old, Levent lost his eyesight. Sun is nothing but a feeling of warmth to him. He doesn’t even know what “darkness” is like. But now, he is 40 years old and his life is a story of success. Getting full support from his family both emotionally and economically, Levent did not give up on life and grew up to be a licensed psychologist helping people. Now he is happily married and a father of a son who is just one-month old.

It is impossible for us to comprehend what he has been through. However, what we can easily relate, though, is the passion he held throughout his life - a love for cars and speed.
About 2 months ago, Levent shared his passion with Motor1.com Turkey’s Youtube channel via a comment asking if one day he could be a part of our car reviews. Our team naturally could not ignore such a sincere request. After a long process of preparation, Motor1.com Turkey team prepared a surprise for Levent that he would never forget.
With his passion for cars and speed stronger than ever, Levent got behind the wheel of a sports car, a Honda NSX valued at 1 million dollars (approx. £780,000) in the Turkish market. He drove through the darkness passionately with his advanced instincts reaching 152 mph.
