Imagine getting to swap lives with a billionaire’s son, with full access to their house, car collection, and lifestyle. Well, that’s exactly what happened to YouTuber Tanner Fox, who got to experience life behind the wheel of insane multi-million dollar hypercars in his August 28 video.

20-year-old Tanner Fox has experienced some insane things during his career as a YouTuber, but getting behind the wheel of his dream car – The Ferrari LaFerrari – may well be the icing on the cake for this young internet star.

As part of his “switching lives with a billionaires son” series, Tanner got to explore the mind-blowing garage of a billionaire. From the incredible Pagani Huayra to the mind-blowing Bugatti Chiron and LaFerrari, this is one garage that would blow away any self-confessed petrolhead.

When initially offered the chance to drive the LaFerrari – his dream car – Tanner is completely taken aback and is unsure whether to drive it, saying he “freaked out a little bit”. Eventually, he drove it, giving the young YouTuber an experience he’ll never forget.

Driving his “dream car” was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Tanner.

Given that the LaFerrari is worth around $1.5 million, for the owner to just hand the keys over to Tanner is somewhat of a shock. After getting his head around the fact he’s behind the wheel of a 1000hp hypercar, he ends up racing it against the owner’s Bugatti Chiron on the highway.

Clearly, the insanity of this experience isn’t lost on Tanner, who describes himself as being “absolutely speechless” from having the opportunity to drive his dream car.

As if being able to drive the LaFerrari wasn’t crazy enough, the next day Tanner is handed the key to the 1500hp, quad-turbocharged Bugatti Chiron Sport worth a cool $3 million as if it was an everyday car.

After a quick ‘crash course’ on driving the technical Bugatti, he is given the all-clear to take it out on a “hot lap” of the local area. In traditional Tanner style though, he ends up using the ultra-rare hypercar to impress a ‘stranger’ and replace her Uber to dinner with the Bugatti.

Doing what any young, single man would do, Tanner proceeds to try and impress the girl with the power of the Bugatti; Seemingly forgetting that the car isn’t actually his. This tactic does seem to work, as the girl ‘forgets’ about her dinner reservation.

Whether the girl is genuinely a stranger or an actress is unclear, but either way, getting to drive several million dollars worth of exotic cars was an incredible experience for Tanner.

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.
