    The wrecked Audi is a 3-door Audi A3, ( kid-brother to the
    4-series (S4)), probably with the turbo charged 1,9 litre diesel engine because it only revs to about 5000 rpm. When the car finally hit the tree the car was doing about 60 m.p.h. ( if the crash occured in germany or austria... 96 kilometres per hour = 60 m.p.h.)

    I guess those photos show 60 m.p.h. can mess up a car pretty bad !!

    umm, Texas huh? Why doesn't that one surprise me. Just goes to show that if it can be done it will usually be done first in Texas.
