Brave/Foolhardy Audi Driver Ploughs Through Floodwater And Emerges Unscathed

Audi is well known for its Quattro four-wheel-drive system and the confidence it can inspire in drivers, but this video shows just how confident/foolhardy some Audi drivers can be.

Footage from Burbank in southern California shows an A6 driving along a flooded road, apparently unfazed by the stricken BMWs that have been stopped by the foot-deep water.

We’re not sure Audi publishes an official wading depth for the A6, but if it does, we think it’s likely that this far exceeds it. Our hero/lucky so-and-so displays less-than-exemplary fording technique, using too much speed and producing too large a bow wave, but somehow his humble saloon survives.

In a piece of tongue-in-cheek marketing, the German brand has retweeted the video on its US Twitter page:

We wouldn’t be at all surprised if the A6 driver joined in with the Schadenfreude at the expense of the poor BMW-driving souls left stranded on the waterlogged road as his car carried on regardless.

Pssst!
