During his time on the incredible Gold Rush rally in North America, YouTuber Randy from Savage Garage appears to have got himself into trouble with the cops while in his Pagani Huayra.

Supercar rallies bring together incredible cars, fantastic scenery, and adventurous spirit all in one crazy event. Unfortunately for the drivers, they often make great targets for supercar-hating cops.

Unfortunately, it seems that Randy from YouTube channel Savage Garage found himself in front of the police while behind the wheel of his $2.6m Pagani Huayra.

Teaming up with Randy for the tour, fellow automotive YouTuber Alex Choi has been providing regular updates via his social media channels. Posting to his Instagram story, Alex shows a series of supercars pulled over at the side of the road by the police, including Randy’s Pagani.

Alex has posted several videos to his Instagram stories showing the Pagani traveling at excessive speeds.

While the actual cause of the traffic stop is unclear, Randy was photographed flashing the camera a sarcastic thumbs up pose, complete with a silly face.

Whether this was Randy admitting defeat or perhaps just making light of the situation is uncertain, but it definitely got people talking. The clip even featured in a Life of Palos video.

Following the photo of Randy at the side of the road, Alex posted a video from the same traffic stop showing the cops taking great interest in the Lamborghini Aventador that they were with.

While many other channels such as DailyDrivenExtoics have highlighted police treating supercar owners badly, it seems that Randy and Alex were fortunate enough to be pulled over by a far friendlier team.

Alex’s IG Stories can be seen in this Life of Palos video. Clip starts at 2:11.

Instead of giving the driver grief for how loud the car was, the police appeared to be genuinely interested. They even went as far as filming it on their own mobile phones.

Alex then went on to post a series of videos from within the Pagani to his Instagram story while on the road. Showing that the “cruising speed” of the car was around 165mph, which is obviously well over the posted speed limit.

Whether this was the initial cause of the traffic stop is unclear. Either way, it certainly doesn’t help with the negative press that surrounds supercar owners and rallies.

With so many incredible cars and YouTube personalities in one place, there will likely be more drama to come from this year’s Gold Rush Rally.

Will Need for Speed Hot Pursuit be available in 4k?

Since the game has been in existence for ten years since its original release, players can expect plenty of upgraded graphics to take full advantage of the latest hardware.

Sadly, it seems that the new Hot Pursuit game won’t be optimized specifically for next-gen consoles. That doesn’t mean that it won’t look great though. Fully-overhauled graphics, new reflection technology, better textures, and updated particle effects will all feature as part of the remaster.

Despite not being optimized for next-gen technology, players can still have the option of playing in 4K, depending on their platform of choice.

NFS HP Remaster 3Some players will be able to enjoy the remastered game in 4K, but it is platform-dependent.

Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch players will not have access to 4K, but will instead enjoy the game at 30fps in 1080p HD.

Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro players will have the option to run in 4K though, being able to choose between either a 1080p 60fps ‘performance’ mode or a 4K, 30fps ‘fidelity’ mode.

PC players can also get in on the 4K action, with the ability to play in 4K resolution up to a maximum of 60fps. This frame rate has been locked to ensure there is an even playing field in multiplayer, especially when taking advantage of the new cross-platform capabilities.

Does Need for Speed Hot Pursuit support cross-platform gaming?

One of the biggest new features for the remastered Hot Pursuit is the inclusion of cross-platform capability. This means for the first time ever, Hot Pursuit players will be able to challenge their friends regardless of their platform.

Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Nintendo Switch players can all compete head-to-head in multiplayer races and challenges, bringing together the Need For Speed Hot Pursuit community like never before.

NFS Hot Pursuit PorschePrevious DLC such as the ‘Porsche Unleashed’ pack will be included with the base game.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit DLC packs

For the first time ever, the game will come shipped with all the DLC readily available for players to enjoy.

Featuring every pack that was made for the original game, it gives all players a bonus six hours of gameplay, along with a whole host of new cars. Included are the Porsche and Lamborghini Unleashed car packs, Armed & Dangerous DLC, and more.
