Former Green Rush Rally co-owner Benjamin Chen, 33, owner of a rare $750k Porsche Gemballa Mirage GT, was arrested and charged Tuesday morning for DUI and reckless driving after causing a series of incidents with several parked cars in Midtown Manhattan.
Residents of Hell's Kitchen were able to catch the Chen speeding around the Javits Center, around 7:30 am where the New York Auto Show was set to take place. Security footage shows Chen losing control of the Gemballa right before hitting a parked minivan, then proceeding to restart his car and speed off without stopping to notify the owner of the van.

In a 2014 interview with duPont Registry Daily car blog, the Porsche Gemballa Mirage GT, was one of just 25 produced. Chen told duPont that he purchased the rare supercar in memory of his late dad.
