Who is the greatest photographer of all time?  I’m certain I will hear many people say Henri Cartier-Bresson.  I haven’t finalized my answer yet, however I can certainly see why.

580hp + 870kg of hash + 133mph + Audi RS6 Avant.

This has to be the funniest Audi related news story of the year.  A guy in an Audi RS6 Avant was busted in Spain doing 133mph with 870+ kg of hashish stuffed into the back of the rig! HAHAHA. Genius.  Pure genius.  The ride height has been significantly lowered, nice one mate!

“A smoking Audi RS 6 Avant was caught doing 213.8km/h on the A-49 stretch between Huelva and Seville in Spain. The driver was busy getting away from the long arm of the law, which in turn was keen on his load. Some law-enforcers spotted the big Audi carrying a number of rather suspicious-looking bags at the back. These could easily be seen through the clear windows.

Upon realising his steed was being closely examined, the driver planted his right foot on the floor, letting loose all power to reach a high of about 240km/h at some point. The agents of course gave chase for about 20km but could not catch the flying RS 6 with its 580 horses in full attendance.

Eventually the fleeing driver came up to some heavy traffic and could not exploit the car’s engine anymore. So he got out and ran, on foot. It turns out he had quite a valid reason for his neck-breaking speed. A total of 27 bags of hashish weighing about 870kg (1,918 lbs) was confiscated from everywhere but the driver’s side. The illegal cache’s street value is estimated at €120,000 (US$180,500), about €10,000 less than a standard RS 6 Avant in Germany. The RS 6 driver was eventually apprehended.”
