YouTuber buys Audi R8 thanks to supercars of London videos
Expect ot see him on here sometime then! Lovely car.
Doesnt mention how much its cost to insure it, not sure many insurers would go near a 23yr old on a R8!
Chubb policies for one fella- whole new different ball game on insuring prestige items and estates.
Btw - Shmee150 (Tim) has sort of beaten him to this Nilz
Tim recently went from an R8 to a Mclarren MP12C all through profits from YouTube and I think he is around my age at 27! lol
If that's not epic enough he is regularly invited to many supercar/hypercar factories to give a review and get shown about and taken in some stupidly rare and expensive cars. (Pagani, Mclarren, Bugatti etc)
If only I lived in London and had a decent camera
Fair play to them both though - Tim is pretty down to Earth and a friendly chap, met him at the 'secret hanger meet' he posted a video about on his channel late last year
Justin Beiber just bought a Bugatti Veyron !!!!
Ha kids eh !!!!
Fair play to the guy. Hats off from me.
Kwistof, i did read about Tim as well...
Good luck to them!!
I'm almost 23 can I buy it off him the insurance is only £884.04 so fair play he can afford that nice car
£1750 a month... and affording an R8... I earn more than that a month (without being cocky) and I cant afford no damn R8
He earns that just from YouTube videos, we don't know his primary income, and watching the vid in the link, it seems to me he has sponsors for the tuning of his R8, as it's not staying standard!
this would make sense.. read fail
fair play to him has some good videos. and the demand is there!
By the way.. Tim (shmee) also owns a lot of companies. one of them being an online shopping site. he is loaded.
Was thinking the same: £1750 a month is £21k per year which isn't really R8 money. Sponsorship deals would explain it.
There is a Chinese lad in Plymouth that must be in his early 20s that I quite often see cruising around in a white R8. So much envy.
We don't even know how much deposit he's put down for the car? Anyways, how many of us was 23, and hankered after a supercar? Yup, most of us wanted one, hats off to him to actually get one! Hope he keeps his feet on the ground and enjoys it. Lots of young footballers driving around in flash cars in their early twenties, good luck to them, they've earnt it.
Still can't help but be envious! i definitely would get one if i could
Tim didn't just make that purchase from YouTube earnings alone.
Don't get me wrong he's done well from a hobby but not that we'll just yet lol
Watch Lord aleam on you tube if you really want to get annoyed by a young lad with too many super cars to drive lol
Good on him; can't knock anyone who earns their money and then spends it on what they love. By spending it here they're paying taxes here! A guy at the end of my road is 21 and owns a Stg 3 TT-RS, great guy and when you live at home with your folks it buys you opportunities those of us with big mortgages and lifestyle hobbies can't afford.
The only people I resent owning things like this are those who steal them or come by them by dubious means (e.g. tax evasion / crime funded / defrauding the system).
He has worked his way up to the R8 and also Macca..... think he had a DB9 before the R8 and then a Range Rover before that....so start with a £30/40k car and then sell up and add a 10/20k amount fo move up the range.....e.g a few months of YouTube payments.
I think you'll find his father is cut from the 'right' cloth - if you look into that comment you'll understand what I mean and where the fortune has come from.
Plus the dealerships he visits must give him a massive discount with all the 'free' marketing they'd get due to the car going to all of the prestige car events and places us normal folk don't get invited to! lol
There is a young Chinese lad from up Midlands way who owns a prestige car dealership -
Thoroughly nice chap and gave my (extremely lucky) mate a spontaneous lift to an event in a brand new Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP560-4 Spyder after he jumped out of my S3 at the start point! I did try and keep up on the motorways as my mate filmed me from his passenger seat laughing his head off as I was getting destroyed
Do you guys beleive it's too late to "jump on the wagon" of this supercar filming craze? I live relatively close to London and I would actually enjoy going out and filming these supercars. However, I feel as if there are already too many people doing this therefore I couldn't make any money from youtube. Unless, I do something unique however I Can't think of any unique way of filming superacars in london lol.
He lives off the back of his dad though not self made
Yeah most the cars he drives are rented to customers and his videos are mostly for promotional purposes. Came my gym once in a chrome Bentley which received allot of attention.
