Personal motto:

Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.

Gabriel's obsession with cars and driving started when he was about 3 years old. His parents noticed that their boy was highly frustrated not being able to "get in" and drive his toy cars. So they bought him a classic Moskvich pedal car, which he drove until he couldn't fit inside anymore.

Later, his dad taught him how to drive on a field and from that point he started driving everything that had 4 wheels and an engine, including a van, a truck and a tractor. He usually annoys his friends by taking the keys and driving their cars when they have to go somewhere.

When it comes to car preferences, he will tell you that classic cars are the best, especially old American muscle. There are few modern day cars that get him really excited, and don’t ever dare to ask him about hybrids or EVs if you don’t want to see him mad excited.
