Cars are a man’s lifelong dreams. They are to a man what make-up is to a woman. The frustration one experiences on finding a product of their liking not quite what they expected, is intolerable. This statement applies significantly to a man who owns a great of deal with exotic cars as a hobby, like YouTuber Houston Crosta. The realisation that the Pagani Huayra is substandard to that of his dreams was no laughing matter to Crosta. Randy from Savage Garage gave the opportunity of driving his dream car. However, the event could not meet Crosta’s anticipations.
About: Houstan Crosta
Houston Crosta operates as the owner of Royalty Exotic Cars, a Las Vegas-based company dealing in exotic rental cars. Crosta started his entrepreneurship business in the year 2015 and had to work hard to get to where he is now. In the initial stages of his career, Crosta had to walk the streets of Las Vegas displaying a sign on his back and handing out flyers to promote his business. He had to do this daily for eight hours straight. Initially, Crosta started by dealing in motorised rental scooters. Now, the company has grown to accommodate over fifteen employees and more than 36 exotic cars. The company also houses about 30 Polaris Slingshots. The average revenue the business yields is an unbelievable $500,000 a month.
Crosta’s diligence paid off eventually. At just the young age of 29 years, Crosta proudly owns not only a Bugatti, a luxurious multi-million dollar house, but also a Mercedes AMG S63 daily driver. The list does not merely end there. Crosta is also the possessor of a dozen expensive Hublot watches as well as a $15,000 custom gold .338 Lapua sniper rifle. Possessing these is what many people may term as being successful. Nonetheless, seeing that his motorised scooter turned Bugatti business is smooth sailing, Crosta may now venture into the path of airlines. He hopes to develop a new mode of conveyance for his company in the form of an indulgent, extravagant regional airline.
Regarding: Pagani Huayra
The Pagani Huayra is what people call an Italian mid-engine sports car with Pagani automobiles being the manufacturer of the vehicle. The car succeeds the Zonda, the company’s prior release. The car received its name from Huayra-tata, who is the Quechua god of wind. The Pagani Huayra obtained the title of “The Hypercar of the Year 2012”, by the Top Gear magazine. In an agreement with Mercedes-AMG, the engine supplier, Pagani had decided to limit the number of the Huayra to just 100 units. The car made its official online debut through a press release, with tons of pictures, on January 25, 2011. The headquarters of Pirelli in Milan witnessed the first world debut in February of 2011.
Reason Behind Houstan Crosta’s Disappointment
The long-standing saying “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch” unfortunately proved to be right in the case of YouTuber Houston Crosta. Crosta found out the hard way that “All that glitters is not gold”. On September 27, 2020, Crosta finally obtained the opportunity to try out his dream car, the Pagani Huayra. Fellow YouTuber, Randy of Savage Garage, lent the car that costs around $2.6-$2.8m, to Crosta. Although part jokingly, Costa declares that he would pay Randy $20k just for a chance to drive the car. Nevertheless, as soon as he puts the takes the keys and enters the vehicle, the disenchanted YouTuber has no idea how to proceed. He finds the car unnecessarily complicated in its handling.
Once the car started, Crosta could immediately notice specific faults with the Huayra. The car was fast yet bulky that the poor guy had to hold on to his dear life while driving. Additionally, Crosta also stated that the positioning of the window switches was strange. Furthermore, the centre console design obstructs the adjustment of practically everything, such as the A/C, while driving. Crosta adds that the rough quality of each ride counters the luxury offered by the Pagani Huayra. As such, it seems that Houston Crosta will stick to his usual cars rather than trying out something new anytime soon.
