Audi R8 Spyder crashes whilst racing on public roads

It’s never a good idea to race on public roads because excessive speeding can lead to terrible accidents like this one in the attached video below involving an Audi R8 Spyder. It happened back in 2011 while on the Bullrun Rally where the driver behind the wheel of the Audi changed lanes several times and at one point didn’t see the Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG next to him and the two cars crashed into each other at a very high speed.

The Audi R8 Spyder driver lost control of the vehicle after crashing with the Mercedes and then it rear ended a Honda and both cars entered the fast lane and almost collided with the vehicle from which the video was recorded. The SL 55 AMG belonged to rapper Ice T and it pulled over on the right side of the road to check out the damages and then drove off as the car was still running.

According to the report issued by the police, the accident was caused by a blown tire on the Audi R8 Spyder which was declared a total loss by the insurance company. Despite the heavy crash, somehow everyone escaped without any injuries but it could have ended quite badly taking into account the speed at which the cars involved were travelling.


I live and breathe cars and Audi has been in my heart for as long as I remember. And also my first "real" car
