The one-of-a-kind supercar was worth $3.4 million.
Crashing your own supercar is embarrassing enough, but this teenage driver had a lot of explaining to do when they crashed their father's one-of-a-kind Pagani Huayra Roadster. The crash happened on a road in Dallas, Texas, after the driver lost control of the one-off supercar, gained air after clipping the curb, and smacked head-on into a tree.
Videos shared on social media show the Pagani suffered serious damage: the hood is flung open, the front fascia is dismembered scattering debris across the road, the driver's door is ripped off, and one of the front wheels is missing. The airbags also deployed, so it must have been a nasty impact.
Behind the wheel was 17-year-old Gage Gillean, owner of the YouTube channel GGExotics. He's also the son of Tim Gillean, a billionaire who founded a private equity firm in Dallas. Since his dad is a billionaire, Gillean has access to a number of exotic cars in his dad's collection, including a Bugatti Chiron, McLaren Senna, Ferrari LaFerrari, Rolls-Royce Dawn, and a Lamborghini Urus.
With a price tag of $3.4 million, the one-off Huayra Roadster was one of the most expensive cars in the collection and is finished in exposed purple carbon fiber. Luckily, nobody else was involved in the crash, but Gillian suffered a fractured arm after he was struck by the door.
The YouTuber claims they were driving around 30 mph and didn't break the speed limit when the crash happened. Thanks to its twin-turbocharged V12 producing 754 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque, the Huayra Roadster is capable of accelerating from 0-62 mph in around three seconds and top out at 210 mph.
While the damage looks severe, there's still hope this one-of-a-kind Huayra can be saved. After all, Pagani has resurrected totaled Zondas before. A few years ago, a Zonda F that was destroyed in an accident was reborn as the one-off Zonda Riveria, so hopefully Pagani can work its magic on this wrecked Huayra Roadster.
