With a net worth of $1 million at just 18 years old, it was only a matter of time before TikTok influencer Nessa Barrett started splashing the cash, and now she has with her first-ever car.

With 10.3 million TikTok followers, 3.7 Instagram followers, and a thriving YouTube channel, brands have been lining up to offer Barrett a range of lucrative deals.

Huge companies such as VintageWaves/MajorWaves, Novashine, and OG Scrunchies are just some of the big names out there that have offered Barrett endorsement deals in the past, with that number constantly growing as her reach continues to expand.

So, as an 18-year-old millionaire, it is no surprise that Barrett is keen to show the fruits of her labor, as she flashed her first-ever car to followers on her Instagram story. As she showed off the interior of her new ride to adoring fans, it is hard not to notice the hugely recognizable Telsa symbol glinting on the steering wheel.

The iconic Telsa logo can be seen on the steering wheel.

An environmentally-conscious smart car, Telsas represent the top of the line when it comes to electric vehicles, with some even being fancy enough to be considered luxury.

Known for their flash style and sleek design, they are certainly vehicles made for the more upmarket folk. Although Barrett is yet to post anything about her car’s exterior, the interior makes it clear that she is now the proud owner of a Telsa Model 3, which can cost up to an eye-watering $60,000.

Given that most of our first cars were our parents’ station wagon from the 1980s, being able to purchase such a prestigious car solely through social media influencing is definitely impressive.

Barrett also gave fans a glimpse into the interior of her car, which fans have suggested is a Telsa model 3.

On Instagram account the TikTok Tearoom, many commenters have expressed their congratulations. One user remarked that “she deserved it”, whilst another praised her for choosing an electric car specifically, saying: “we love an eco-friendly queen”.

Model 3 Telsas are also 100% leather-free, which means as well as being sustainable, the car is also cruelty-free.

However, not all comments were positive. Several users remarked to the drama account that this “wasn’t tea”, while others made reference to her farting during a livestream.

This led to fans jumping to Barrett’s defense, with one pointing out that these trolls’ “bitterness show when they [TikTok Tea Room] post positive stuff and y’all comment “’this is not tea,’” adding that “it’s sad that y’all live off of negativity”.

Barrett has certainly had a rough time with internet trolling as of late, as she was forced to deny bizarre rumors circulated by fans that she shortened her own spine.

At the time, she remarked that the rumors were “stupid” because “people know I’m insecure about my height.” Ultimately, it is great to see that things are looking up for Barrett and  wewish her the best of luck in her new wheels!

Russian Instagram influencer torches his $150,000 Mercedes on purpose

An Instagram influencer literally set his own $150,000 Mercedes Benz on fire after he got fed up with how his local dealership was repairing it.

Several videos of Russian Instagram and YouTube star Mikhail Litvin torching the black GT 63 S went viral over the weekend, with people around the internet both amazed and horrified that someone has enough extra cash rolling around they can just send a luxury car up in flames.

But, Litvin’s display surprisingly wasn’t just a random instance of pure, nihilistic capitalism captured on film, as he claims he was sending a message to his local Mercedes dealership and the company as a whole.

The saga begins like this: Mikhail bought a brand new GT 63 S (running around $140,000 to $160,000) and somehow, broke the engine five times in a row through various automotive shenanigans.

Eventually, he became fed up with how his local Mercedes Benz dealership was repairing the vehicle each time he brought it in, even replacing the turbo kit with one purchased off of eBay at one point.

Paying to have sub-par parts installed in his car seems to have been the final straw for the Russian, who filled his trunk up with gasoline and brought plenty of cameras to a deserted field to send his vehicle off with a Viking funeral.

After bathing the car in fuel, Litvin lights a Looney Tunes-style trail from offscreen and the poor four-door goes up in a massive fireball.

Litvin made sure not to miss a spot.

After contemplating all the memories he had in the Mercedes while the inferno raged behind him, the YouTuber drove into the sunset with his new whip, a classic teal Lada that only needed a little bit of a running start to get going.

With over 11 million followers on Instagram and 4 million subscribers on YouTube, chances are good that Litvin will be picking up a fly new car sometime soon to replace the smoking heap that was his GT 63 S.

Exactly what he’ll replace it with remains to be seen, but we’d bet he’ll have a video out about it when he does.
