An Audi R8 V10 supercar has recently met its end in flames in London, after it decided to spontaneously combust.
The newest supercar incident is coming all the way from London and it is presenting a completely ruined Audi R8 V10. According to thesupercarkids.com, the supercar in question has been destroyed in a fire after it has decided to spontaneously combust. The vehicle has been seen at a bus stop in Ruislip, northwest London, and the causes of the fire haven’t been explained just yet, but chances are something went wrong in the engine compartment.
The Audi R8 has been officially introduced back in 2006 and it has entered production one year later, in June. By the end of 2013, Audi says that no less than 50,700 units of the R8 have been assembled in Neckarsulm, Germany. The supercar in question is currently offered in two body styles, coupe and roadster, and it has a longitudinal mid-engine and Quattro all-wheel drive. The model can be powered by a 4.2 liter FSI V8 or by a 5.2 liter FSI V10, connected to either a 6-speed manual, 7-speed manual, 6-speed R-Tronic or 7-speed R-Tronic transmission. The current Audi R8 will soon be replaced by a new generation which will be based on the Lamborghini Huracan.
