Popular car YouTuber Archie Hamilton Racing has explained just how he has been able to afford to own a number of supercars without striking it rich by winning the lottery or uncovering oil.

Like many car YouTubers, Archie Hamilton has been able to impress fans with his car collection. Be it an Audi R8 or the Range Rover SVR sport – which he ended up selling anyway because his viewers weren’t all that keen on it – he’s gotten behind the wheel of some impressive vehicles.

While YouTube can be a pretty nice way to make money, he hasn’t exactly gained subscribers or viewing numbers like PewDiePie that would probably allow him to purchase the majority of his dream cars. However, Archie has explained just how he has been able to afford owning four supercars in his YouTube career.

In his explanation video, the YouTuber teamed up with Tim from Magnitude Finance company to – unsurprisingly – talk about how he has financed his cars in the past, which has allowed him to own a wide variety.

While the complexities of financing a car could seem pretty boring, the conversation between the pair kept things pretty interesting – with them noting that Archie has been able to get out of deals like the SVR by putting down a bigger deposit than perhaps the cheapest deal around. 

“I’ve had all these cars and I’ve just got in and out of them safely and I want to get that across because without that, I wouldn’t have been able to drive not even one of them – and that is what is so insane,” he said. “I wouldn’t have been able to buy a Lamborghini, buy a Corvette, all my dream cars. The only reason I’ve been able to buy them is because of finance because I don’t personally have that money in the bank.”

Though, like anything involving a contract, there are risks for getting out early – which the YouTuber has done on occasion. As for a rough estimate in penalties, Archie’s have come out between £50,000 and £70,000 – yet that gets paid off over time. 

Of course, the method of financing doesn’t quite work for everyone, as Archie himself said that he’s been a “lucky boy” with it all.

As he noted himself, that sort of penalty money could easily pay for a brand-new car or be a deposit for something quite special but for whatever he has lined up next, fans will just have to keep their eyes peeled.

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.

@nikitaraschellYeah, I’m homeless. I live in my civic, I shower at my gym, and I’m just your average gal. ##whatsinmybag ##hotelcivic ##homeless ##sponsorme♬ Aesthetic Girl – Yusei

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.
