Default Audi A6 tries to break an unimaginable record !!!

This is what the record is all about.

Take an Audi A6, place it at the bottom of a ski ramp.............. and drive it to the top.



It's not impossible, as it has been achieved once before, by Harald Demuth, who climbed the Pitkävuori ski jump in Kaipola, Finland in a red Audi 100 CS quattro back in 1986.

But, this is another day, another car, and most importantly.....another driver. So, will they be able to repeat Demuth's performance and restore Audi's glory?

Yeh seen the ad many times on TV. Reminds me of the fifth gear episode where Tiff goes to the arctic circle at a testing facility to test the electric gizmos in extreme conditions. Seen that episode, Shan?

Ofcourse, i've downloaded those epis. That was a good one, especially the TCS and the ESP tests.

Hey Shan saw the Vid.. it looked like an advertisment and less of a record.. LOL..

But the Audi seemed to be so smooth didnot show any type of struggle i am sure even your Vtec will be able to do that.. it just need the momentum..
