      It’s a A7 V6, not that much power, bad driving and oversized wheels with low profile caused that accident, style will kill you for being foolish

    You know how HARD it is to lose control of an audi? Dutty money and fast living gives way to this type of wreckless behaviour.

    Drivers believe that the machine is an extension of their thoughts. That it will stop when they want it too. That it won't slide, that it won't swerve, that it won't flip, that it has magical powers to overtake around corners without consequence.

    Some fool was trying to overtake me coming to a corner and when he saw the opposite approaching TRUCK, he frantically blew his horn for me to slow down so he could squeeze past. His car could not accelerate fast enough so he braked hard so he would not end up like a pancake. Lucky for him that truck had brakes too.
