    maybe the cops are too busy chasing streetracers and arresting people for parking in handicapped zones to care to make a fast response to a car accident

    Of course, I didn't even think of that!
    i was waiting on a moment, but the moment never came. all the billion other moments, were just slipping all away. i must have been tripping, we're just slipping all away. just ego tripping.

    Good friend of mine crashed his car on a public road. Was searching for the cigarette lighter he was sat on, looked up, swerved to avoid the tree, got the lampost instead.

    Oh, and no amout of AWD and electrickery can overcome shear incompetence.

    a lot of people do an amount of stupid accident and destroy their cars, sometimes they also ruine other people's life, for stupid mistakes or misfortune, but even for a chunky car falling into pieces.
    but when i see an expensive supercar wrecked, i choose statistics: fast car and slow brain, that kind of cars is way more drivible than real-world-car, they have plenty of aids of all types, so it isn't a car's fault, or of the road.
    look at how much exotics are wrecked at high speed and how much, i don't know, KIA RIO crash at 100 mph (it actually reaches that speed...).
    too much confidence in technology and electronical aids, and a great lack of driving abilities or, more important, brain activity.

    I love how all the people on the internet autmatically assume the guy was a crap driver. Im sure they've all driven supercars their whole lives.

    If you weren't there or you didn't know the guy you can't know why they crashed.

    All signs point to a crash in the rain, on wet roads.
    Its wet under the car...end of discussion.

    Lousy driver!
    Once fanboyism infects you it impares all your judgement.
    It's like being drunk, you lack common sense and everyone laughs at you.

    Let's talk about the second car for a second, it doesn't really look like there was any sign of accident, it looks like the engine just blew up. I haven't heard of RS4s being prone to engine explosions, so I can only assume that some @$$hole just rev'ed and rev'ed until his (or her) poor Audi couldn't take anymore and blew up. I bet the car had under 500 miles (800 kilomters) too.
