SUPERCARS are built to do two things – look good and go fast.
This usually leads to showing off and sometimes nasty accidents, which is exactly what happened here.
A video uploaded to YouTube by 'cars reving774' shows what happens when you have a supercar but not the skills.
A red Audi R8 pulls out onto a roundabout and begins circling, seemingly looking for a chance to start a slide.
Thankfully there's too much traffic and the driver isn't able to find a gap to pull one off.
After completing two passes the R8 driver gets bored and decides to take an exit, which is when it all goes wrong.

The quick change of direction and a boot of the throttle sends the R8 into a slide that drive isn't able to hold.
The car can be seen and heard sliding violently followed by a sickening crash as it hits a lamp post.
A second video (below) shows the aftermath of the crash and the R8 is looking pretty sorry for itself.
Its passenger-side rear wheel is pointing the wrong way and the rear of the car has taken a huge shunt.

The first-generation Audi R8 came with either a V8 or V10 engine and from the noise of this car its clear we're looking at the latter.
The V10 R8 has a 532hp engine also used in Lamborghinis and is good for 0-62mph in just 3.9 seconds.
It also has a top speed of 196mph and all-wheel drive comes as standard, although you wouldn't know it given how easily the car span here.
Everybody was saying the same thing in the comments online.
Dan Roebuck said: "Serves him right."
