Beauty guru Jeffree Star has revealed why he bought the custom Toyota Supra that belonged to popular car enthusiast TheStradman.

TheStradman has over 2.5 million subscribers on his YouTube channel and is known for his impressive car collection and documenting his experiences with some of the most expensive vehicles in the world.

During his July 1 video, though, TheStradman revealed that he would be finally selling his classic widebody Toyota Supra, which was featured on the mainstage at the SEMA 2019 car show, to fellow content creator Jeffree Star.

Jeffree Star has revealed why he wanted to buy TheStradman’s custom Supra.

Star, for those of you that don’t know, is one of the most popular YouTubers in the beauty scene and while he is known for his highly successful JSC makeup line, he also boasts an incredible car collection that would leave many collectors in awe.

TheStradman documented his journey in bringing the classic Supra to Jeffree Star, who revealed a full look at his garage when the car arrived, explaining just why he thought it would be a perfect fit for his collection.

“I have a lot of crazy colors in my garage but this is next level,” Jeffrey admitted, pointing out the Toyota’s satin purple wrap and white rims, and claiming that it matched with another one of his cars, the pink Lamborghini Huracan.

“Doesn’t it look like a sister to my Huracan with the wheels? It literally matches,” the beauty YouTuber added.

Star explained that he was so impressed with how the car looked that he actually bought it before even getting to test it out himself. “I love buying something that I’ve never tried or sat in, it’s just cool,” he said. 

Although TheStradman was a bit reluctant to let the Supra go, he also got to check out some of the other cars in Star’s collection such as the Tiffany Blue McLaren Senna, which even left him considering purchasing one for himself.

Despite picking up a new car for his collection, it has not been all good news for Jeffree Star, who has recently received a lot of backlash following the drama surrounding Shane Dawson and Tati Westbrook.

Self-driving car hilariously crashes into wall during Twitch broadcast

During the Roborace Season Beta event being streamed on Twitch, which pits multiple teams operating “self-driving” cars against each other in an augmented reality experience, one of the cars crashed in an unfortunate, but ultimately hilarious, fashion.

If you never heard of Roborace, you’re probably not the only one. The AI-focused racing experience has only been around for a few years now and while it’s certainly entertaining, it hasn’t quite hit the mainstream just yet in the same way that something like Formula 1 racing has.

Despite this, Season Beta of the aforementioned competition is currently underway and is being streamed on Twitch for the world to see. Of course, it wouldn’t be a race without some spectacular crashes and one happened in an absolutely hilarious fashion on October 29.

During the second day of the Season Beta race, Acronis SIT Autonomous’s DevBot 2.0 car took an abrupt sharp turn directly into a wall immediately after being at a standstill, leading to an unfortunate, albeit hilarious moment during the race.

Unfortunately, the camera cuts away before we can see the reaction of the operators, although it’s hard to imagine that they wouldn’t be a little annoyed at that immediate outcome. While it’s currently unknown what the estimated price is for the DevBot 2.0, as they’re all produced specifically by Roborace, this little crash probably just cost the team a lot of money.

The DevBot 2.0 uses Nvidia’s DRIVE platform to operate, which allows artificial intelligence to take over driving the fully electric car, as it races through an augmented reality track.

As the name suggests, this is the second iteration to use the name and is being used by all teams during Season Beta. It’s unknown whether this error was due to a technical error or was down to the “operators”.

If fans are interested in Roborace, Season Beta is set to continue until October 30, and will be streamed on the competition’s official Twitch channel the whole time.
