Today a Gemballa Porsche driven by Benjamin Chen (BC) crashed in Manhattan New York. Striking multiple cars and driving from the scene of an accident, it was in pieces as it came to a stop. We have multiple angles and footage of the incident. It is alleged that the driver was under the influence at the time. The Gemballa Porsche Mirage GT went for $375,000 and was modeled on the Porsche Carrera GT. Both cars are well known for being unruly, the latter killing the Fast and the Furious star Paul Walker. Thankfully known one died in this accident and it is currently under investigation. Hopefully we'll have more information later.

Back in 2000, things in the car world were changing forever. The Fast and the Furious was the start, but it would take other brands like High Octane, Overboost, as well as many others to really fuel the fire. At the head of the pack was the Mischief Series, helmed by Dustin Worles. Probably one of the most illegally downloaded street racing movies in history on LimeWire, the Mischief movie did the rounds and from that fame went on to sell an unprecedented amount of copies. Today it's an icon of the real street racing world and now it really is free on YouTube, in its entirety, presented by Mischief TV itself. Check it out!
