MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi has crashed his Audi RS6. Rossi wrecked his car while leaving a ski resort at Madonna di Campiglio in Italy.
Fortunately, no one was hurt although the same cannot be said about the Audi RS6. Rossi lost control of his V8 powered station wagon and must have hit rear end as it suffered minor damage to the rear bumper, diffuser and exhaust. Apparently, one of the rear wheels cracked due to the impact.
While the damaged RS6 will soon be back on the road, the repairs won’t come cheap. A replacement wheel, bumper with carbon fiber trim and new exhaust tips for the Akrapovic exhaust system would cost in the thousands. That’s a lot for family car. However, this ain’t no ordinary family car. The Audi RS6 is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces 605 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. It’s an all-wheel drive estate capable of reaching 200 mph!
