Popular car YouTuber TheStradman is selling half of his car collection, and has told viewers his asking price for the likes of his Ford GT, a C8 Corvette, his heavily-modded Toyota Supra and more.

Stradman has become one of the most well-known car YouTubers on the platform, thanks especially to his unique taste and matching purple wraps he puts on most of his cars, amassing over 2.5 million subscribers.

Now, though, he’s revealed that those cars are up for sale, with four cars totalling almost $500,000 – which is actually quite a steal when you look at the individual prices.

Stradman’s car collection is a pretty impressive one.

Stradman – real name James Condon – didn’t reveal why he was selling his collection, only hinting that there was something big coming in the future.

Needless to say, with the possibility of making half a million dollars, Condon must have some pretty impressive plans in motion.

While much of his May 23 video was spent discussing the Toyota Supra and his more recently-acquired C8 Corvette, he revealed that he would be selling them all, telling viewers how much he’s looking for each vehicle and opening his emails to offers.

While he explains that it’s not all entirely set in stone, here are the prices he gives for each of the cars he’s looking to sell:

  • Toyota Supra – bidding starts at $70,000 (revealed earlier in the video)
  • C8 Corvette – $105,000
  • Ford GT – $250,000
  • Ford Focus RS – $32,000

Condon did go on to say that while all these cars are up for sale, he might not necessarily sell them all, and it comes down to which ones sell first.

“More than likely, I will not be selling all four,” he said. “If the Corvette sells, if the Supra sells, maybe I can keep the Ford GT.”

He does add, though, that at £250,000, he believes the GT might be one of the cheapest in the nation, so buyers could be getting an absolute steal if they decide to pick this up.

Which cars he eventually ends up selling remains to be seen, but they all look to be pretty good deals, and it will be interesting to see how he decides to use the money for his next big project.

Cadillac backs TSM in car company’s very first esports partnership

Popular esports and entertainment organization Team SoloMid — more commonly known as TSM — has announced a partnership with luxury auto brand Cadillac in the car company’s first-ever esports venture.

On January 11, TSM announced its exclusive partnership with Cadillac, marking the very first time the esteemed automotive company has entered such a business venture with competitive gaming groups.

The initiative kicked has off with a special TSM jersey featuring the Cadillac logo — a swanky fit that the organization flexed in a tweet revealing their latest money move.

That’s not all; according to TSM’s press release, their newfound partnership will also include some very special features for their fans, such as “access to exclusive streaming events, custom video and social media content, and experiential events and activations at the brand new, state-of-the-art TSM Performance Center.”

It looks like there’s a lot to be excited for, and even Cadillac is jazzed to be part of the proceedings, according to GM’s Manager of Emerging Media and Partnerships, Bryan Steele.

“Cadillac is excited to enter the esports space as part of the TSM family,” Steele said of the development. “Whether on the road, or on the Rift, our organizations place an incredibly high value on innovation and craftsmanship. Given our shared values, and the pedigree of Cadillac and TSM, it was a natural fit to team up with one of the most decorated esports teams in the world.”

While TSM might be Cadillac’s first esports partnership, this isn’t the first time a luxury car brand has gotten involved with an esports group; in November 2020, Chinese car brand Haval partnered with Epic Esports Events for their EPIC League Dota 2 initiative.

Just a month prior to Haval’s own initiative, Mazda entered a deal with Hellraisers. Other auto brands similarly involved with esports include Honda with Riot Games’ LCS and Team Liquid, McLaren with DragonX, Audi with Astralis Group, and Kia with the LEC.

It seems that more and more car companies are looking to get in on the action that competitive gaming brings. Who knows — it would be really cool to see a special TSM-wrapped Cadillac someday.
