Gage Gillean, the 17-year-old son of a Texas billionaire, has over 84,000 subscribers on his GG Exotics YouTube page. The page is dedicated to showcasing his – mostly his dad’s – luxury cars and yachts.
His father, Tim Gillean, is the founder of the Dallas-based private equity firm Cross Equities.
Gage is lucky to be alive after crashing dad’s $3.4M Pagani Huayra Roadster. The teen was driving the custom-made purple Pagani Huayra Roadster around Dallas when he lost control – due to low tire pressure – and totaled the ride.
Here’s a video of the car prior to the crash.
The teen originally posted videos and photos of the crash and aftermath to his YouTube and Instagram pages.
The teen wrote in the caption, “Sh-t happens. Thanking God for a second chance at life. Crash could’ve left us with worse injuries or even death.”
The video and photos were taken down a short time later.
