Crashed – Audi R8 in South Africa image

The newest supercar incident to end up on the web is involving an Audi R8 and it took place on the first weekend of 2015.

The Audi R8 may be getting ready to receive a new generation soon but that doesn’t mean that the current one is good for the scrap yard because this is still one hot ride to own. And speaking about hot rides, we all know that driving them too fast will lead to some spectacular crashes and images ending up on the web. According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, the model in question has been crashed in Cape Town, South Africa, the weekend after Christmas, but our source has no clue on how the German supercar ended up looking like that, so if you’ve got more info on the topic, please feel free to share.

Audi has been producing the R8 since 2007 and by the end of last year, approximately 55,000 units have been put together in the Neckarsulm facility, in Germany. The supercar has been designed by Walter de Silva and Frank Lamberty and it is offered in two body styles, two-door coupe and two-door roadster. Both have a longitudinal mid-engine and Quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The engine lineup in the two include the 4.2 liter FSI V8 and the 5.2 liter FSI V10, connected to a choice of four transmissions, with six or seven speeds, manual and automatic. The current R8 is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo and the future one will be based on the Huracan.
