Remember that Porsche 911 we featured a few days ago with about 10,000 bullet holes in it?

Despite its ramshackled state, we’re comforted knowing that the destruction of that 911 served a pretty good cause. This Audi R8, however, was doing nothing except being driven by a complete douchebag who thought that engaging the German police in a gun fight was a good idea.

The scene plays out in Germany where an armed man began opening fire at the police after he was about to be questioned for a domestic dispute incident in his household. After seeing the officers in their patrol cars, the idiot began opening fire on them. In the course of the pursuit, the police managed to pepper the R8 with 37 rounds of bullets, four of which found its mark into the driver.

Despite getting wounded, the driver managed to survive the whole episode where he was eventually arrested for all the trouble he caused. But where the driver escaped with his health intact, for the most part at least, the same cannot be said for the R8, which looked like it had far better days than this one.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

It was a horrific event. The Audi received 37 bullets from a police chase, and luckily the stupid driver survived the shooting incident.

Its kind of sad to see that awesome sportscar on that condition. I can’t believe that it was wrecked like that. I’m really impressed with the figure performance of the car.

It seems that they have finally used on what they have learned on their training! Its just too sad to see this awesome vehicle full of bullet hole.

Well, it’s a good thing that they have used on what they have practiced. With the high speed performance of this car is a good thing that they have chase the car! Woohoo!

Yeah, I have seen the Audi R8 used as a practice target of policemen. Well, it seems that they have already apply on what they have learned during the practice session. At least they have bull-eyed its tyres!

Poor Audi R8 showered by bullets. The owner is some kind of stupid on putting his Audi on that situation. If I’m the owner of this one, I’ll take good care of it.

Hmm, I bet the guy thinks he is one of those Hollywood drivers who can pull off a mean car chase scene. Well that definitely shows that he ain’t one of them. Too bad for the R8 that it has a stupid owner.

Things like this happen when a wonderful car is in hands of a ultimate stupid person who manage to see his Audi turned out like that. Poor Audi R8.

Well, that R8 definitely has a bad fate waiting for it. But I think that this really gives the point clearly, even if you are driving a fancy car, you are still not above the law here.

I really keep scratching my head whenever I see this kind of videos. If that guy is not really a nutcase, he could have simply talked to the police about the incident, and that wouldn’t have happened to the R8.

hmm. This is the only incident that I have known about gun fight that involves the Audi R8.@ayo2003, Well, I don’t think that you need to worry about that thing for it just happened that the R8 is in the crime scene and for me this is a just a news and we need to move on.

Well, I don’t get it..Does it mean that the mad man haven’t used the car to escaped and the police office tried to chase him instead he used the R8 to covered him from the gun fight? 37 rounds of bullets is still not a good view to see but much better compare to happened to the Porsche 911 last week.

Well, that is what you get when you try to break the law. But what I am more concerned of is the Audi R8, poor thing had to go through all that, just because the driver is a big jerk.
