Can the posts of the R8 be moved into another thread, and can you guys post pics of the other cars of the show which did not catch fire?

Default Audi R8 catches fire in Mumbai

A Rs 1.8 crore Audi R8 race car caught fire and was virtually reduced to ashes near the Rajiv Gandhi Bandra-Worli Sea Link on Sunday afternoon.

You cannot blame German engineering for modifications which were done in wrong way and a negligent owner/driver who kept on revving the nuts of this car inspite of knowing it had spurted and Oil leak.

Get the facts right please.

Remember that vento which caught fire last year? First Vento then the Q7 and now the almighty R8. VW's surely manufacturing some HOT cars!

Heard from a reliable source that the owner got a 2013 R8 that was launched recently as the replacement for this thingy today evening. The same red one that was used as the demo car. Pretty surprising but if it's true then Audi surely knows how to make its customers happy!
