    Just posted about this in the A4 section, as follows.

    This happened less than 1 mile from my house in a 30mph limit! Both the Avant and Beemer look like write-offs as well as the TT. The driver has serious head injuries but I hope he recovers ok, I'm just glad no-one else was hurt and it wasn't my A5 he flew over!!!

    More pics and a video here.

    Probably thought he was invincible due to Quattro :whistle:

    Anyone know if the driver is an ASNer?

    How the heck do you manage to get it in that position, OK can assume not keeping to the limit, hit the curb and somehow launched the car ?

    I thought Audi sorted the downforce issue with a spoiler and anti roll bar.

    I hope all involved make a full recovery !

    Update to an old thread looks like the guy was drunk BBC News - Lowestoft embedded car: Drink-driver banned and fined

    Wonder what the insurance payout was, 3 cars between £10K x £15K + hire car fees, and god only know how much damage to the house.
