Audi R8: Ashes To Ashes

Oh, be honest now; don't tell me that all you Ferraristis aren't getting a kick out of this image featuring a brand new Audi R8 burned to the rubber? Guess you'd like to know what happened. Well, according to the guy who posted the pics on R8talk, "Ti_Mike", the fire was caused by a failure in the gear box hydraulic system. There's no way to verify this, but here's Ti_Mike's exact word's: -Click "Read More…" below
"The car burned has been a test car, serial no. below 1610.
All cars below this no had problems with the R-Tronic and the fire was caused by a hydraulic failure.

Most of the cars with a serial no below 1610 have been test cars. It has been a simple software update for the gear box hydraulic system to eliminate the problem.

So don't worry guys it's been solved. My car has been delivered know one month a go an the serial no is above 1700. All the other owners have received a software update. The car of the Audi deal which burned just hasn't being updated. Well guess it would have been easier if they would have done it."
