With access to a plethora of gorgeous supercars, Randy from Savage Garage is living any petrolhead’s dream. Despite having so many incredible cars to choose from, it seems that his favorite is the Pagani Huayra, as he explains in SG’s September 14 video.

Randy has some incredible hypercars in his collection, the highlights of which are undoubtedly the Koenigsegg CCX and his Pagani Huayra.

It would seem that despite the Koenigsegg being rarer and more ‘exotic’ the favorite car for Randy is in fact his $2.6m Pagani Huayra. Owning the car is a “dream come true” for him, and it’s clear he’s completely smitten by the outlandish hypercar.

The Pagani Huayra created quite a scene while filming in Miami.

“Spaceship noises”

One of the best parts of the Pagani is the open-mechanism shifter on the center console. The Huayra is fitted with a 7-speed sequential transmission, which can be shifted via the paddles “if you just want to fly by” or using the ornate central shifter, which Randy appears to prefer.

There are some excessive features too, such as the custom Pagani key. Designed to be an exact replica of the Huayra; Randy says it’s essentially “a $400 Mercedes key with a $7k Sterling Silver body kit!”

The $2.6m hypercar also makes a lot of “spaceship noises” which are fantastically entertaining. This was in fact deliberate, as the designer of the Huayra wanted to replicate his love for aerospace engineering, incorporating acoustic features such as making the “immense” turbos sound like jet engines when spooling up.

“You could drive in this all day long”

Randy also says he’s a big fan of the design of the car as a whole, stating the engineers did “an amazing job” right down to the divisive interior design. Some say it’s ‘gaudy’, but he calls it “stunning… like a fine watch.”

In comparison to the Koenigsegg, the Huayra makes a far better ‘grand tourer’ and is much more “usable” on long distances, with it being “super easy to drive” and “very comfortable… the Koenigsegg is comfortable, but this [the Pagani] is way more comfortable.”

The power delivery for the Huayra is also incredible, very “smooth” and instantaneous. It hides the speed well, with Randy saying “it’s so fast… it doesn’t feel like you’re doing [high speeds] at all.”

Summing up the Pagani, Randy says it’s “truly unique, completely exciting… it’s such a different experience, this is a ‘drama’ car in every way” – clearly the Pagani is the new garage favorite!

TikTok star Nikita Crump has managed to pull off the incredible feat of living in her car, a 2012 Honda Civic, for over one year. Now, she has explained how she was able to pull it off in a new YouTube video.

Crump’s journey began in a video first uploaded on November 3, 2019 where she explained how she officially told her landlord she would be moving out of her home and into her car.

According to Crump, this wasn’t some impromptu decision and she had been spending a few months actively thinking about it before taking the plunge.

Nikita has been living in her car for over a year.

Despite having a nice house with affordable rent and good roommates, she felt moving into her car was something she “had to do.”

Since then, she has successfully spent a whole year living in her car and marked the anniversary of her first night by explaining how she is able to stay cool or warm at night.

In the backseat of her car, the YouTuber keeps a pillow and too fuzzy blankets which she uses to cover herself up.

Along with her sweatpants and sweatshirt, she is able to stay warm even in the winter months. However, occasionally she has to put a jacket on if it’s ever especially cold outside.

“In Northern California, a lot of the warmer days are still cool nights, so I’m fortunate that most nights throughout the year are totally bearable, but there’s totally been the occasion where it is hot, I am sweating and I wear as minimal clothing as I can,” she explained.

Luckily, she also has a rechargeable fan which can help her get through the night if need be despite only staying charged for one day.

In addition to just staying cool, the TikTok sensation also revealed she showers at the gym and keeps plenty of personal hygiene products inside her bag including shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant to name a few.

Now, Crump is hitting the road and embarking on a two-month-long trip around the United States where she’ll be documenting her experiences.

The entertainer’s decision to live in her car has paid dividends, as she currently has over one million followers on TikTok.
