YouTube channel 1320video published a video about the night race of street racers, during which the 1100-horsepower Audi RS3 caught fire and at the same time was left without brakes. The fire occurred at a speed of about 240 km / h.
- The driver of the modified sedan competed on the highway with a "charged" Nissan GT-R and McLaren 720S supercar. As a result of another powerful acceleration, sparks fell from under the RS3, and soon thick smoke appeared.
- At the same time, the car's brakes failed and the engine subsequently stalled, and the installed drag brake parachute was not prepared for use and could not be deployed. The electronic handbrake did not work either. The failure of the braking system at high speed occurred just before the long descent of the highway.
- For several minutes the driver and passenger were coasting in a flaring four-door. Even before stopping, the flame was already escaping from under the hood.
It was later established that the fire and simultaneous brake failure arose due to the disconnection of the brake line and the ingress of hot fluid into the engine compartment. Depressing the pedal in an attempt to stop the car only made the situation worse.
