According to the story posted over on the GTR OC UK forums, the driver of the Audi R8 following this Nissan loaned GT-R could not stop in time and ran into the back of it. This occured while shooting for an upcoming Top Gear Magazine issue on the Isle of Man.
Brakes a little too good sometimes it seems?
Update: The guys at CarTribe say this is indeed the same GT-R that the Stig had out on the Top Gear test track. We also know that the black beast (the only GT-R officially imported by Nissan UK so far) was quickly repaired and is now back to normal, as can be vouched for by anyone who saw it run at the Goodwood Festival of Speed just a few days after the accident.
Poor Audi having to scrape bits of Datsun off its front.
Wouldn't want to be th epoor sod that has to phone Nissan/Audi and tell them about the little incident.
Hi is that Nissan/Audi?
You wouldn't believe what happened today
Anyone got any pics of the R8???
