YouTubers Tavarish and Savage Garage hint at buying $1m+ Bugattis

With TheStradman taking delivery of his long-awaited first hypercar in the form of a Bugatti Veyron, it seems that other YouTubers are following in his footsteps; Will the incredible Veyron become the next ‘flex’ car for automotive YouTubers?

Supercars such as the Lamborghini Aventador and Huracan were once the stuff of dreams for automotive YouTubers. With plenty of bolt-on modifications, instant recognition, and ‘baller’ status, they were ideal for showcasing that a channel had ‘made it’ in the automotive sphere.

However, now that so many channels have gone through the process of owning, modifying, and ultimately selling their Lamborghinis, there needs to be another ‘flex’ car to show a level of achievement.

Are more YouTubers buying Bugatti Veyrons?

A number of channels – including TheStradman himself – have built crazy twin-turbocharged Lamborghini Gallardos, but it seems even these custom-built supercars no longer cut it.

Following the reveal of his own 2008 Bugatti Veyron, TheStradman seems to be attracting a number of other automotive YouTubers on his Instagram page, who allude to their own Bugatti-themed purchases.

YouTuber Tavarish started the rumor mill by commenting on Stradman’s delivery video “Welcome to the club… wait” and has then taken the rumors up a gear by commenting on Stradman’s Instagram post: “We should race!”

Tavarish isn’t the only YouTuber to be hinting at the purchase of a Bugatti hypercar. Savage Garage has also added fuel to the hypercar fire, having simply posted a picture of the Bugatti logo on their Instagram with the caption “trinity”.

Will we see a ‘trinity’ of Bugatti Veyrons?

Whether this is their way of hinting that there will be a YouTuber ‘trinity’ of Veyrons is unclear, but if both Tavarish and Savage garage follow through with their purchases then it would indeed be a trinity situation.

SG also seems to suggest it is indeed a Veyron that they are purchasing, commenting on Stradman’s Instagram post “Let’s twin soon.” Does this suggest not only the purchase of a Veyron but perhaps even one in a matching specification to Stradman’s?

Given the price of these incredible 1001hp hypercars rests around the $1m mark, they represent a big investment for a YouTuber, and certainly have a degree of ‘flex’ surrounding them.

Hopefully, for those that have purchased them, they go back up in value due to their status and rarity – so long as they don’t get too extensively modified.

When EA announced they were working on a remastered version of 2010’s Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, many were shocked by the seemingly out-of-the-blue news. Die-hard fans of the game will love the nostalgia value, while newcomers to the franchise have plenty to get excited about.

Back in 2010, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit was released to widespread critical acclaim. Taking on the classic ‘cops and robbers’ genre with a twist, NFS HP allowed players to act on both sides of the law.

Well, for fans that missed out the first time around, EA has announced they are rebooting and remastering the 2010 classic, refreshing it for a whole new generation to enjoy.

Since this is a remaster of the original game, the storyline remains very much the same as it was before. That’s not to say nothing has changed for the latest version, however. An updated photo mode will please in-game snappers, along with a reboot of the ‘Autolog’ in-game social media network.

Will Need for Speed Hot Pursuit be available in 4k?

Since the game has been in existence for ten years since its original release, players can expect plenty of upgraded graphics to take full advantage of the latest hardware.

Sadly, it seems that the new Hot Pursuit game won’t be optimized specifically for next-gen consoles. That doesn’t mean that it won’t look great though. Fully-overhauled graphics, new reflection technology, better textures, and updated particle effects will all feature as part of the remaster.

Despite not being optimized for next-gen technology, players can still have the option of playing in 4K, depending on their platform of choice.

NFS HP Remaster 3Some players will be able to enjoy the remastered game in 4K, but it is platform-dependent.

Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch players will not have access to 4K, but will instead enjoy the game at 30fps in 1080p HD.

Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro players will have the option to run in 4K though, being able to choose between either a 1080p 60fps ‘performance’ mode or a 4K, 30fps ‘fidelity’ mode.

PC players can also get in on the 4K action, with the ability to play in 4K resolution up to a maximum of 60fps. This frame rate has been locked to ensure there is an even playing field in multiplayer, especially when taking advantage of the new cross-platform capabilities.

Does Need for Speed Hot Pursuit support cross-platform gaming?

One of the biggest new features for the remastered Hot Pursuit is the inclusion of cross-platform capability. This means for the first time ever, Hot Pursuit players will be able to challenge their friends regardless of their platform.

Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Nintendo Switch players can all compete head-to-head in multiplayer races and challenges, bringing together the Need For Speed Hot Pursuit community like never before.

NFS Hot Pursuit PorschePrevious DLC such as the ‘Porsche Unleashed’ pack will be included with the base game.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit DLC packs

For the first time ever, the game will come shipped with all the DLC readily available for players to enjoy.

Featuring every pack that was made for the original game, it gives all players a bonus six hours of gameplay, along with a whole host of new cars. Included are the Porsche and Lamborghini Unleashed car packs, Armed & Dangerous DLC, and more.
