Recent reports surfaced about some teenager who crashed his Nissan Skyline into the house only after an hour of driving it. In fact, the 17-year-old was deemed by car enthusiasts as a shame since such vehicle was said to be the Holy Grail of sports cars.
The legendary Paul Walker drove the Nissan Skyline in his epic role as one of the greatest sports car racers in the "Fast and Furious" franchise. Since then, the vehicle had become famous in the automobile industry. However, a 17-year-old took it to shame and slammed the vehicle into the house. What gives?
Who's The Culprit?
As reported by Jalopnik, an hour after the purchase of the powerhouse Nissan Skyline, the 17-year old sped up and crashed the vehicle. The incident happened in the Australian city of Perth last Thursday morning and thankfully, there was no one at home when the crash occurred.
It was also revealed that the teenager violated the Australian anti-hooning laws when he bought the car. In fact, it was revealed that the source was even too embarrassed to talk about what the teen did to the Nissan Skyline.
Which Vehicle Was Put To Shame?
The said vehicle was a Nissan Skyline or the Nissan GT-R33 which was then put for repairs after the crash and was turned over to a new owner. The white vehicle was also deemed to be a safety car when the driver along with the passengers was unharmed after the crash occurred.
There was also just one authority vehicle that responded to the incident. In fact, the Department of Fire and Emergency Services suggested that the teen was unfit to own the vehicle.
At present, the Nissan Skyline is valued at a purchase price of $7,000 to $30,000 in the automobile market today. When the 17-year-old crashed it into the house, even the reporters were ashamed to even consider the idea that a young teen could devastate the famous vehicle and put it to shame.
