PICS: New Audi R8 HYDRAULIC FAILURE - Burns to ground.

You know all the Ferraristis aren’t getting a kick out of these images featuring a brand new Audi R8 burned to the rubber? Well, according to the guy who posted
the pics on R8talk, “Ti_Mike”, the fire was caused by a failure in the gear box hydraulic system. There’s no way to verify this, but here’s Ti_Mike’s exact word’s: -
"The car burned has been a test car, serial no. below 1610. All cars below this no had problems with the R-Tronic and the fire was caused by a hydraulic failure.
Most of the cars with a serial no below 1610 have been test cars. It has been a simple software update for the gear box hydraulic system to eliminate the problem."
Hopefully all the R8 owners have received a software update. The car of the Audi deal which burned just hasn't being updated. Well guess it would have been easier if they would have done it. View the attachments for this post at: http://www.jlaforums.com/viewtopic.php?p —01793#9701793
