Driving your parent’s car is always a risky business, but when that car is worth over 3 million dollars, it’s even more of a risk. Unfortunately for YouTuber GGExotics, that risk ended badly, after he totaled his dad’s Pagani Huyara Roadster. 

GGExotics has fast become well-known on YouTube thanks to his impressive car content. With his dad being a billionaire, Gage has access to a variety of iconic hypercars, including a Ferrari LaFerrari and Bugatti Chiron.

While the previously-mentioned hypercars are certainly impressive, the rarest car in the fleet was a purple Pagani Huyara Roadster. Costing around $3.5 million, it was also one of the most expensive cars that he owned.

Unfortunately, despite having driven the Huyara a number of times, including during a ‘life swap’ with YouTube star Tanner Fox, disaster struck the Pagani.

First reported by YouTuber Life Of Palos, Gage has reportedly crashed his father’s multi-million dollar Pagani.

Thankfully, everyone seems to be OK and no other vehicles appear to be involved, but the Huyara is in a bad way.

The footage shared by Life Of Palos shows the entire front end completely smashed up, with both front wheels significantly off the ground. Given that the body of the Huayra is made from Carbon Fiber, it’s not likely that it will be a repairable crash.

While the main thing is that everyone involved is OK, it has led to a number of people questioning whether a 17-year-old should be driving the $3.5m hypercar.

It is well-documented that he has prior experience driving cars such as this (thanks to the number of videos on his YouTube channel) but he has also shown himself driving at high speeds on public roads.

Not only that, but we imagine the insurance on such a vehicle would be sky-high. Given that the car is his fathers’, we can only hope that he was also insured on the car in the correct manner.

Whatever happens, it’ll be interesting to see if the car is repaired, or simply sent to the great hypercar scrapyard in the sky. No doubt we’ll be hearing more about the situation from those involved soon enough.

Gage from GGExotics speaks out

Since we initially published this article, the driver Gage has now released a full statement about the accident. Speaking in a video on his friend RideWithRy‘s channel, Gage basically confirms that the car did in fact hit a tree after he lost control, causing the wreck.

“Thank god we were wearing seatbelts” said Gage “as the roof came off [and] the doors flew off.” Thankfully beyond what appears to be a busted arm/shoulder (judging by his sling in the video), no-one was hurt.

He also took the opportunity to shut down claims that the accident occurred because he was “too young” to be driving the car, saying that it “wasn’t the case.”

New footage shows the extent of the damage, with the missing roof and doors very apparent.

Looking to the future, Ry said “we will continue to make videos, but we might take a break since this was a big incident.”

Regardless of whether the car can be saved in any way, the main thing is no-one was injured in the wreck.

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.
