This is the fastest car I have ever bought... (new car reveal)
In September 2018, Choi narrowly missed a motorcyclist while attempting to perform a doughnut on Mulholland Highway. Video of the incident was uploaded to YouTube where Choi was criticized by the motorcycle community. He was accused of almost killing the occupants of the motorcycle he narrowly missed. A female cyclist who witnessed the incident then lashes out on Choi.
"This Video of a YouTuber's Tesla Driving on Autopilot With No One in the Driver's Seat Is Deeply Stupid," Jalopnik proclaimed.
"Video of Tesla Model 3 Driving on Autopilot Without Actual Driver Shared by Reckless YouTuber Alex Choi," The Drive chimed in, adding that "this is the same idiot who nearly killed a motorcyclist while doing donuts on a public road.
It's time to take someone's license away."
in February 2020, Parker Nirenstrein of Vehicle Virgins called out Alex Choi and Daily Driven Exotics.
Vehicle Virgins had previously uploaded a video to YouTube, explaining how Alex Choi "tried to kill him" after driving recklessly in an electric golf kart – which he said was not clickbait. In a post to Instagram on February 9, 2020, Nirenstein said: "2 months ago at Racewars, Alex Choi asked to give me a ride to my car in an electric golf kart. I was riding behind the kart on the trailer seat (where people are supposed to sit) and he decided to start going recklessly fast. Immediately I told him to slow down but he didn't listen, hit a turn way too quickly and flipped the entire kart."
Following the accident, he claimed to have suffered a severely sprained ankle, had his camera broken and damaged his clothing – claiming that he should have been compensated for what happened.
That was followed up with messages between Nirenstein, Choi and Damon Fryer about whether or not this should turn into a legal challenge in the future. After that, several potentially detrimental pieces of material were made public – or threatened for release – by Nirenstein.
In July 2020, Choi discovered that his Lamborghini Huracán is up for sale for more than $1million on a website called Carousell. In unusual circumstances, the seller had a verified sticker, joined the website over a year ago, and has been selling and buying other items. Commentary YouTuber Life of Palos reached out to Alex who said that the account was entirely fake and that the car is not for sale. The Carousell ad also set its location as Singapore. The listing seemed to be removed later.
He introduced himself on Youtube with a video titled "Fiat 500e DRIFT CAR build."
Choi subsequentley began posting car content to Instagram in May 2016.
The most viewed video on his channel has over 10 million views and is titled "Lamborghini Launch Control Reaction Compilation."
Emelia Hartford has also made an appearance on his channel. She is featured in a video eating breakfast on the back of Choi's Lamborghini Huracán.
