Fortnite leakers have revealed an early look at different statistics for the upcoming cars, which are expected to be released in Season 3.

There have been plenty of vehicles made available in the past Fortnite seasons, such as the Golf Carts, Quadcrashers, and the new Choppas that were added on March 17.

However, it finally looks as if modern cars will be the next mode of transport available in Fortnite after prominent leakers revealed stats for each of the new vehicles coming soon.

Fortnite has introduced many different vehicles in previous seasons.

Cars have been scattered around the Fortnite map since the game first launched in September 2017, although they were previously used as a source of metal materials instead of for getting around the safe zone.

Fortnite leaker HYPEX revealed that they would no longer be sitting around, waiting to be harvested, and revealed a full look at stats such as HP for each of the upcoming vehicles.

The leaked files shared that there would be three different ‘Valet’ car models, ranging in small, medium, and large, as well as a ‘DagwoodTruck’ for players to choose between. You can find the full stats list below.

Plenty of the files included highlighted the differences in fuel between each of the new cars, which might come as a surprise to many, as previous Fortnite vehicles have operated without the need to be refueled.

However, that does not seem to be the case for these cars, which seem to spawn in with a random amount of gas in every game.

Another Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey has leaked that ‘Petrol’ items were added to the game in late 2019, meaning that they might finally be introduced at some of the gas stations scattered around the map for players to refuel their new cars.

While the current state of the map is clearly not suitable for these new vehicles following the massive flood event in season 2, Epic Games have confirmed that the water level will decrease over the course of Season 3, opening up some possibilities for their release in the coming weeks.

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.
