There’s only one custom-designed purple 2017 Pagani Huayra Roadster in the world… Scratch that, the owner’s son actually crashed it into a mil… a large number of pieces. Gage Gillean is not particularly the spoiled kid type, but with his modest YouTube following, he often catches his viewers eyes with the most extravagant of lifestyle. Especially, with his father’s enthusiasm with hypercars.
Tim Gillean is the father of the teenage YouTuber who has a fascination with rare and expensive cars. The Pagani itself was tagged at $3.4 million, constructed almost completely of carbon fiber. He still has some exotic cars from each of the world’s most-renowned hypercar manufacturing company.
Without the suit and tie, he doesn't look like a person in his line of work.

To introduce him, Tim Gillean is the co-founder and current president of the Dallas-based private equity firm, Cross Equities, LLC. There isn’t much on him besides his luxuries, like those many private businessmen, but he certainly doesn’t look like one. Still, there’s no denying he’s had major success in his line of work.
What Is Tim Gillean’s Net Worth?
Daily Mail has mentioned in it's recent article that Tim Gillean is a billionaire, but with a private business, he is not yet listed by Forbes as one of the richest people in the country with the net worth of over $1 billion. His wealth does make a case for it though, with real estate being one of the most lucrative areas out there. And he's well into it than just being an agent.
Gillean founded the firm with McAlan Duncan and Cory Emerson.

According to the company portfolio, his firm, Cross Equities, "invests in, develops and redevelops among a diverse group of real estate assets throughout the United States and Mexico." It basically means it deals with millions every time they get a project. The most pronounced one is the $25.4 million Fannie Mae loan they dealt with Hunt Real Estate Capital to refinance multifamily communities in Dallas.
You Can't Take Your Eyes Off the Cars Tim Gillean Owns
Going by his general looks, he doesn't look like a real estate mogul, but he does have a compelling look of a race car driver, or at least an enthusiast. He's a big fan of fast cars that fall into the category of 'Hypercars'. Gillean's son, Gage, is always showing what they have in their outdoor garage, and the lineup is rightfully mouth-watering.

Gage claimed in one of his videos that their garage has these exotic cars worth $20 million. But with the Huayra into pieces, it's gone down. They only bought the 224 mph beast back in June, the delivery of which was documented by the son on his YouTube channel.
In addition, Tim also bought a $20 million mega yacht that his son and his friends took to the Bahamas.
Tim Was Quite Mad with the Wreck But Couldn't Stay Angry for Long
Gage Gillean operates the YouTube Channel titled GG Exotics which has risen from 80,000 to 102,000 subscribers since the crash on Tuesday, November 24. Multiple posts were shared on social media pointing out that he is lucky to be alive.
He too shared a post on his Instagram story, writing "S**t happens. Thanking God for a second chance at life. Crash could've left us with worse injuries or even death." He also posted a video on YouTube describing the horrific crash and the aftermath with a cast on his hand.

The 17-year-old says he noticed the low tire pressure warning while driving with his friend, also a YouTuber, Zach Walker, who is worse off himself. Despite being below the speed limit, he said he lost control of the car, which he explained in Instagram was because he felt the back right tire go off. But he steered to the right because there was a bridge on his left before crashing into a tree.
In the YT video, he first apologized the creator Horacio Pagani for destroying the one-of-a-kind car. As for his dad, Gage says he was mad but couldn't stay angry for long. "That car is replaceable," he says, reiterating what he said on Instagram. "I'm not replaceable."
Putting it all past them, the YouTuber said the company, and Pagani himself, has a Pagani Huayra BC lined up for them through a deal they made before the crash. There are two more new cars coming up as well.
