Driver Jailed and Audi RS4 Confiscated for Street Racing in France

So, you’ve got an Audi RS4, it’s a B5 family station wagon, so nobody suspects you’re driving a fast machine. This makes it an ideal starting point for a sleeper project and if you take it up to 620 hp, like the man in the adjacent video did, you’ve got the perfect recipe for street racing.
The man, a 31-year old from France, decided to take the vehicle out for a night racing session, challengihng a Nissan 300ZX that has also been heavily modified. However, the Japanese coupe only delivered 530 hp and was eaten alive by the German estate.

In the process, which took place in a road in Deux-Sevres (Western side of France), the RS4 driver pushed the game up to 310 km/h (192.5 mph). While doing so, he recorded himself and subsequently uploaded the video on Youtube. Did we mention that the man didn’t have a driver’s license?

This was a big mistake (we’re not here to talk about wether the driving itself was an intelligent move or not), as the French police used the clip as evidence, with the man recently being convicted to one year in jail.In addition to that, general attorney Pierre Martello decided that the vehicle, which the man had acquired back in 2006, should be confiscated., due to the fact that the owner put others’ lives at risk.
