Owning supercar is one of the things very few people get to do. They are high dollar cars that can be uber luxurious or ferociously fast. Although money doesn’t bring wisdom you’d think that they would take care of their vehicles. Some garage the cars for years while others drive them. Some even lose control and wreck them. That leads us to Ben Chan who is a Gold-Rush Rally co-owner.
Recently Ben was arrested in Manhattan for ovi and reckless operation of a motor vehicle. He was seen in the city smashing his extremely rare Porsche Carrera GT-based Gemballa Mirage GT into multiple vehicles. He drove off before eventually stopping at an intersection. You can see from the photos that the car is completely destroyed.
The windshield is shattered, the front end and rear are mangled. The car barely resembles it’s former self. Supposedly Ben was under the influence of a controlled substance which made him crash his $800,000+ car.

Crazy enough this isn’t the only supercar crash Ben has had. Via The Drive, In 2013 he crashed a McLaren 12C Spider. He was leaving a rally in his rented McLaren when he lost control.
In 2016 he crashed a 2010 Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 SV.
In 2015 Ben scraped his 1997 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR at the Monterey car week.
It seems like he should probably steer clear of supercars. Although it’s not likely that he’ll take our advice. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
