23 year old Paul Wallace goes around filming supercars. For a living. He owns the "SuperCarsofLondon" YouTube channel and it has made a fair amount of money since it was founded five years ago.
So much that now, Wallace, has managed to own a supercar himself. He upgraded from a Vauxhall Astra 1.6 to a used Audi R8 worth £50,000 thanks to revenues from the ads associated with the supercar videos.
Wallace says he makes up to £1,750 ($2,931) a month, a sum that is said to cover payments on the Audi, insurance, tax, and general running costs.
“It is a dream come true. It is surreal knowing I started this all from filming supercars. Owning a car like this is what I have always dreamed of. It looks amazing inside and out, it drives fantastic and sounds brilliant,” Wallace says, adding that he would like his next car to be a Lamborghini Aventador.
