A serious accident with the founder of the Goldrush Rally, Benjamin Chen, occurred on the streets of New York City early Tuesday.
He lost control of the Porsche Carrera GT, which was seized by Gemballa, and he was driving it, and he collided with a small car in the Manhattan Hell Kitchen area. Then he continued driving and smashing more cars before the police finally stopped him.
Since then, pictures of the accident have appeared on social media.
Police accused the 33-year-old of ruthlessly driving and operating a motor car while on drugs, the New York Post reported Tuesday.
His Carrera GT was one of 25 cars that were tuned by Gembala and were originally gray. Chen, known as Gemballa Mirage GT, bought the car in 2014 and painted it in blue to honor his late father. The blue was the same color as the previous 911 that he and his father bought together, as Chen revealed in a 2014 interview with duPont recording.
As mentioned earlier, Chen was the founder of the Goldrush Rally, an annual event where car enthusiasts drive and have fun in different states within a week. During the 2014 event, Chen managed to reach 246.4 miles per hour on a public road in a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport he also owns. The high speed race took place during the Sun Valley Road Rally near Ketchum, Idaho.
