The first Audi SUV with 600 horsepower also happens to cost a lot of money. Its base price of €127,000 is irrelevant because between all the options you can have, most people will end up spending closer to €180,000. So it's a real shame to see it in this state.
The details surrounding this crash are few, but the photos speak for themselves. It happened near the small Dutch town of Reeuwijk-Dorp. The RS SUV's driver lost control and ended up in the Kerkweg canal, which fortunately wasn't very deep.
It's easy to imagine that he was speeding, considering the RS Q8 will do 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.8 seconds. But actually, the driver was unharmed, we don't see any popped airbags and all the bodywork is intact. So based on all that, we think he wasn't going absurdly fast, nor would we blame him for doing so.
The RS Q8 had been delivered less than three weeks ago, and we're worried that it might be written off. A car dipped in the water can and will work again, but most people who buy expensive cars sell them in this situation because they don't want to deal with repairs or have soiled goods. If you have any further details about this vehicle or the crash, let us know.
