A racing car enthusiast and social media influencer led police on a chase in California after his naked girlfriend reported that he attacked her with an ax — then livestreamed his final moments, saying he loved his son before killing himself, according to reports.

The 25-year-old woman flagged down San Diego cops last week after her boyfriend, Angel Hernandez Grado, 28, tied her up, sexually assaulted her, strangled her and hit her in the head with an ax, the San Diego Union Tribune reported.

She said Grado — known as S2K Wya online — told her he was going to buy a gun and would kill her if she called police, according to the news outlet.

The woman, who escaped when Grado left the apartment, suffered two broken ribs, swelling to her face and bruises all over her body.

Police were given a description of the suspect and his white BMW X5, which they spotted about 1:30 a.m. on Interstate 15. When they tried to stop the SUV, the driver repeatedly stopped and started driving again, police Lt. Carmelin Rivera told the Union Tribune.

San Diego police and California Highway Patrol officers used spike strips to flatten the vehicle’s tires on I-5 near Del Mar Heights Road and again near Carlsbad Village.

The driver, who told a cop over the phone that he was armed, was finally stopped with the help of the Orange County sheriff’s SWAT team, which used armored vehicles to block him.

Grado, who had over 50,000 followers on Instagram, recorded his final moments on the site, holding a gun to his head as he prepared to pull the trigger.

He said he loved his son and urged him to take care of his family, according to the Latin Times.

“I love my boy. I tried my hardest but I f—- up,” he said, the Sun reported.

Grado said he wanted his son to love cars and encouraged him to play baseball and soccer.

“I am now weak. I just f—- hate my life, bro. I’m just tired of this f—- life, f— the police,” he added. “They got all my tires but f— the law. I’m above the law.”

Police were heard urging him to change his mind but he said: “I’d rather f—- die than do another stay in jail.”

He then shot himself in the head and was taken to a hospital in Orange County, where he was pronounced dead.
