For a car enthusiast like YouTuber Vehicle Virgins, it can be hard to part ways with your beloved vehicle, but he ended up having a good reason why he did it.

In a series of videos uploaded on Jan 22 and 23, viewers discovered that the YouTuber picked up a pair of brand-new cars, but had to trade in his beloved Ferrari to do so.

The Californian ended up getting two new cars out of it, so, in the end, it ended up being worth it. The first vehicle he picked up was a Rolls Royce.

He explains that he had his eyes on a Rolls Royce Wraith for quite a while and the perfect opportunity to purchase one presented itself here.

“I’ve always wanted a Wraith,” he said. “When I got my S-class, a Wraith is what I wanted. When I got my E63, as funny as it sounds, a Wraith is what I wanted. And, finally, it’s in the price range. This is 2015 with 16,000 miles on it that I can afford.”

In a stunning turn of events, just the next day Vehicle Virgins was on his way to buy a new car in the Rolls Royce he had just purchased the day before.

It ended up being a twist for viewers because he revealed he had to trade in his Ferrari 458 Special to do so. Midway through the second video, he explains the decision to do that came down to him not having a ton of time to enjoy the car.

“I tried to stomach it, put a bunch more miles on it and it just like, I don’t know, I can’t drive it as much as I’d like to,” he said. “I’m officially done. Trading it in for the Wraith and some cash and something else.”

As it turns out, the “something else” ended up being the Ferrari 812 Superfast.

“Okay, so, I kinda lied,” he said at the 6:44 mark. “I kinda sorta got an 812 Superfast. I have wanted a v12 Ferrari for a long time and after having one of these for a week from Ferrari I was like that’s gotta be the best GT car ever made.”

To summarize, he ended up getting two new cars out of his one, so it’s a fair tradeoff. Let’s just hope the YouTuber can actually take some time to enjoy this one more than he did his previous Ferrari.

Hilarious Forza Horizon 4 glitch sends cars into the stratosphere

Despite being two years old, Forza Horizon 4 still continues to throw up random glitches and bugs. Thankfully, most of them are hilarious one-off incidents, such as this glitch which occurred during a race. 

Most players of racing games such as Forza Horizon 4 have never considered blending the game with others such as Flight Simulator. However, the Mercedes-AMG G63 featured in the video below may have had a taster of what a collaboration between the two games may look like.

Glitches still regularly show up in Forza Horizon despite the game being around two years old. Many are posted to subreddits such as r/forza and r/forzahorizon, which is exactly how this video by user CheaterDust was discovered.

The glitch itself seems to have randomly occurred as a result of the G63 colliding with another car while in mid-air.

CheaterDust captured the screen recording while in a race, with his Mercedes X-Class taking on what appears to be the Mercedes-AMG G63.

Having drifted around a corner and through the checkpoint seen in the video, the two vehicles racing head-to-head enter into a rutted cross-country section of the circuit.

Once upon the rough terrain, the two vehicles gain ‘airtime’ from the jumps, and collide in mid-air. This seems to trigger a glitch in the game which sent the G63 flying into the air.

Since it was an AI vehicle there was no first-person footage from the G-Wagon of the incident, but even CheaterDust doesn’t seem to be able to believe what happened.

Having sent the G63 safely into the stratosphere, the Redditor keeps checking back to see if the car lands again. Eventually, after around six seconds, the Mercedes crashes back down to earth.

As if the damage from the glitch wasn’t enough to put the car out of the race, the G63 also dropped back several places in the race.

According to the poster, this glitch isn’t possible to replicate with another ‘human’ player, and can only happen to AI cars. Whether it is an issue with the physics engine or the AI engine specifically is unclear, but the results are undeniably hilarious.
