Audi R8 GT rear-ends Volkswagen Golf V GTI

A first generation Audi R8 GT was lightly damaged after rear-ending a fifth generation Volkswagen Golf GTI. The accident took place a few days ago in Johannesburg, South Africa and it seems the supercar driver did not keep a safe distance from the hot hatchback and as a consequence it failed to stop in time, thus hitting the spicy Golf which now needs a rear bumper replacement.

As far as the Audi R8 GT, it’s one of the 333 units ever made and appears to have suffered more extensive damages which will surely generate a huge bill for the owner. The front bumper will have to be replaced and those at the workshop will also have to straighten out the hood. The good news is the headlights appear to be intact and there aren’t any signs of damage which could jack up the repair costs even further.

As you can see, the owner of this first-gen Audi R8 GT decided to spice up his automobile by applying some red accents on the body, including the side mirrors, rear wing, front splitter, rear diffuser while the brake calipers have a similar finish.

We remind you Audi also built 333 units of an R8 GT Spyder and these two are considered to be among the most desirable versions of the first-gen R8 supercar.
