Oh dear it is wet in here, the door seals are not very good.

Just picked this up on a Volvo forum

Rough translation of the wording is as follows:

33 year old Man from the town "Woerden" have crashed an Audi R8 during a test

He took a test drive on a Saturday afternoon with a brand-new Audi R8 that did not end
very well. He made a "drivers mistake" and the R8 as a result, ended up in a ditch.

The car is for certain a total loose, the driver and passenger remained unhurt. The R8 stands in "Bodegraven" and is probably no longer repairable says director Westdijk of Van Beynum car repair Ltd. He values the total damage of around 200.000 Euro's.

On the road into the viallage of "Milandweg", there is a 80 Km/h limit, however, according to the neighbouring people that witnessed the R8 driving, many of them reported that it appeared the R8 was travelling at around 200 km/h.

According to the police, the driver and driver's mate have however explained that they drove at approximately 130 kilometres per hour...
