    I've seen before too, and wondered what happened to make the car brake up like that.
    I've never heard it was a hoax before...

    S'funny. Why did a guy related to someone in the car post on one of the forums when it happened? Are the white sheets covering the remains also part of the hoax?

    I'd love to think it was a hoax but I fear not. Have you got any links/proof it was? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    speaking as someone who is made mostly of metal, even a low speed impact can have horrendus results.

    Exsesive speed - if you look carefully the spedo is still reading a speed in KPH. Stuck at about 80 - 90KPH, I'm sorry no Car let alone an Audi would disintagrate like that. The only possible reason is that it is a Hoax like some of you have mentioned or maybe the Audi A3 in question was a cut and shut car to split like that.

    For those of you who dont know what a cut and shut car is, without patronising is; A car that maybe has been stolen and or written off before. Two cars are cut and shut (stuck/welded) together to make one car. Completly Illegal and death will be apon you if you have a car like this and are involved in an accident.

    Your thoughts are welcome on this...

    Maybe the speedo was reading a lot higher than that, and was heading back to 0 KPH before the power was cut off?!

    3 reasons why its fake:

    1 - If u look at the 2 pieces of car theres no trail or markings on the floor to show the way they went flying in the directions they did

    2 - With the engine pic out of the car the grass around it is intact engines arent light enought to fly out of the car and if it did fly why is it in 1 piece

    3 - Theres no blood also which is a little strange as well

    No - if the power was to turn off the dials would go down to 0. The only way that the dials would be stuck is a fault which would of occured at impact.

    I do agree that the car may have been traveling at higher speed prior to impact. but the photo suggests to me that the impact occured at 80-90KPH.

    I think its a hoax or like I said a dodgy car to break up like that.

    What about the driver he would have to be cut out of car, so that can explain some of the damage ??
