Audi R8 V8 catches fire in the Netherlands
If we punched ourselves for every burned down sports car we’ve seen in recent years, our face would be indistinguishable by now. However, no matter how many times we’ve seen these exotic beauties get engulfed in flames, the pain remains the same.
Take this brand new, matte black Audi R8 V8 for example. With only 20 km on its odometer and being taken out for a standard test run, the R8 inexplicably catches fire as it was running along the A67 highway in Someren in the Netherlands. No word yet on what caused the fire, only that it happened without any hint or warning. Luckily, both the driver and the passenger managed to get out of the car in time.
