When you own a unique Pagani Huayra worth more than 3 million euros, you should avoid letting your 17-year-old son drive it. Or you have to accept that it will end up in the scrap yard. The proof in video.
Hypercar accidents always make people grind their teeth. Not only because they involve the risk of heavy injuries, but also because they are usually rolling works of art that become wrecks. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened today in Dallas, Texas, when a single Pagani Huayra Roadster was involved in a heavy accident that deployed the car’s airbags and destroyed much of the car’s bodywork.
Tuesday night, news of the accident of this Pagani Huayra Roadster identified as the 76029 chassis began to circulate on social networks. Its condition once worthy of a museum piece is now closer to ruin. The driver’s door was resting on the sidewalk, both front wheels were detached from the rest of the chassis, and other pieces of carbon fiber were scattered all over the road.
One less Huayra
Several publications on Facebook and Instagram identified the car as the one that frequently appeared on the social networks of Gage Gillean, a 17-year-old YouTuber and son Tim Gillean, a billionaire who founded a private equity firm in Dallas that owns a number of such cars.
The roadster in question was once worth $3.4 million when it was new, and that’s not hard to believe given the custom manufacturing process Pagani uses. Even the apparent purple-tinted carbon fiber gives a clue to the price of this Italian hypercar.
But that’s not surprising when you see the rest of the family’s collection: McLaren Senna, Bugatti Chiron, Ferrari LaFerrari, Rolls-Royce Dawn and Lamborghini Urus.
Fortunately, however, content creator Zackxak (who is also believed to have been involved in the accident) confirmed via his Instagram account that he and Gillean escaped the accident without serious injury.
