Passengers Escape Audi R8 Write-Off

Looking at these pictures it’s a miracle no-one was killed.

Amazingly a young couple managed to walk away with minor injuries from this accident that took place on the A3 section of the autobahn, in Aschafffenburg, Germany. According to German publication Main-Netz, the 26-year-old driver was pushing the 500-hp Audi R8 a little too hard in the wet. The autobahn has an advisory speed limit of 81 mph, but it’s safe to assume he was well into three figures. After losing control, he slammed into the median barrier, spun a 180 and ended up wedged beneath the guardrail. It's safe to say the $150k supercar is now good for scrap.
