The 27-year-old owner of a
crashed his brand-new car, costing $1.2million, within 24 hours of collecting it from the dealership in Dallas. So far only 375 of these cars have been built, a number now down to 374.
With a seven-speed gear, 2.8 seconds from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h), a twin turbo V8 and top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h) "possibly the most exciting car ever built" is how this car has been described by
The driver and a 24 year old passenger were injured in the crash, luckily not seriously. Given the power of this supercar, the driver and passenger are very lucky to still be alive without any major injury.
It has been speculated that the reason for crashing the car might be due to the driver putting the car into sport mode instead of auto.
I finished 14 hours of automotive engineering videos for the video course back in October. It's been a hectic few months and I'm finally ready to share some pretty exciting news: I've moved the video production to the UK. To Manchester, to be precise. And I'm building a proper studio where we can be more productive, more creative and shoot in even better quality.
I've had quite a few questions from people about why I chose to use an MX5 Miata for the video series. Was it sponsored? Am I an expert with them? Because I love them? The answer is... it just seemed the best choice at the time. Now, with hindsight, I realise it was the best possible choice in the world. Here's the story...
We've been filming and releasing videos every week since getting into the new studio. The course now has 9.5 hours of pro-quality video, fully subtitled and I'm really proud of what we're producing! We're using CGI anywhere it helps understanding, and the general quality and feel of the videos is at an all-time high.
