Shocking footage has surfaced online showing the moment a massive semi-truck side-swiped a Tesla Model 3 in the U.S. last year.

This video was recently posted to the Wham Baam Teslacam channel on YouTube and reveals that the incident occurred on a tollway in Colorado. While the truck driver was to blame for the crash, it could have been easily avoided.

As the front-facing camera of the Tesla reveals, it was approaching a large semi-truck in the right lane. Suddenly, however, the trucker merged into the lane being occupied by the Tesla. The truck slams into the side of the Model 3, shattering its passenger-side windows and sending it into the median where its driver, Aaron Smith, managed to swerve around the cable barriers before coming to a stop.

Images taken of the Tesla after the crash show that both the passenger side doors were scratched and dented heavily by the truck. The passenger-side front wheel was also ruined, as was the front bumper. Unsurprisingly, the narrator of this video says that the Tesla was determined to be a total loss.

Could the crash have been avoided? Yes. If you re-watch the clip, you’ll notice that the trucker had his turn signal on and was looking to change into the left lan, so perhaps the Tesla driver could have backed off the throttle to let the truck in. Not that this is any excuse for the truck driver, who should have taken much more care when changing into the left lane. Had they looked in their mirrors, they would have seen the approaching Model 3.

 


At the time of its introduction, the Porsche Carrera GT was the finest, road-legal supercar the German automaker had ever created. It was an instant classic and yet despite being applauded by pundits, famed German tuning company Gemballa thought it could do better. The result was the Mirage GT.

Just 25 examples of the Mirage GT have been produced over the years with owners given the ability to spec out each car to their personal tastes, whatever they may be. The example featured is one of the more aggressive cars built and is currently up for sale.

Listed through Alain Class Motors in Dubai, widely regarded as one of the premier supercar/hypercar dealerships in the world, this Mirage GT is adorned in a shade of matte black and complemented by a host of red accents, including the outer edges of the wheels, brake calipers, headlights, and engine cover. Porsche enthusiasts may hate it but it’s certainly one way to stand out, even in Dubai.

In creating the Mirage GT, Gemballa transformed the exterior, developing new front and rear fascias while also adding distinctive side skirts, an enlarged rear wing, and a bespoke engine cover. Modifications continue in the cabin with this car sporting red leather across the seats, steering wheel, and parts of the door panels. The cabin also features areas of exposed carbon fiber and black leather.

Gemballa opted against messing with the Carrera GT’s beloved 5.7-liter V10 engine and only fitted it with a new exhaust system that boosts power up to 645 hp.

No pricing details for this Mirage GT have been provided in the listing, but that kind of tells you something about what it’ll cost you, doesn’t it…

The cabin also features a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and Bluetooth, and a 10.1-inch digital instrument cluster, while a nice touch is the engine coil cover that’s signed by Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt, the Le Mans ’67 drivers.

Power is supplied by a 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 that’s been fitted with an Akrapovic exhaust system. The mid-mounted engine churns out 647 HP and 550 lb-ft (746 Nm) of torque, driving the rear wheels through a seven-speed Getrag dual-clutch transmission. From rest to 60 mph (0-96 km/h), the GT ’67 Heritage Edition needs 2.8 seconds and it maxes out at 218 mph (351 km/h).

This stunning GT ’67 Heritage Edition has 780 miles (1,255 km) on the odo and is offered with an indoor car cover. The American supercar is listed by Mecum for their Kissimmee auction in Florida, which takes place between January 7 and 16. The estimated selling price, according to the auction house, is between $1,250,000 and $1,325,000, which is no surprise, considering that modern GTs usually change hands for in excess of $1 million on the used car market.
