2013 Audi S5 Gets Trashed On A Test Drive

The car’s abilities certainly do not make the driver, as discovered by the person driving a 2013 Audi S5


  • The test driver wanted to try out the car’s capabilities.

  • The incident left a 450-foot trail of destruction.


The Audi S5 is a potent coupe – reading any review will tell you exactly that. More often than not, test-driving a potential purchase is a good idea if mostly to get a sense of how the car behaves, to see if it matches the buyer’s wants and needs. A woman, test-driving a 2013 Audi S5, decided to take the car close to its limits with near-catastrophic results.

The 2013 Audi S5 is powered by a supercharged 333-horsepower 3.0-litre V6 that also produces 325 lb.-ft. of torque. With quattro AWD, big brakes, and plenty of other chassis upgrades, the S5 is quite the driver’s car. Thing is, not all of us are drivers.

Witnesses, as reported by the dailystar.co.uk, said they saw the car driving erratically and a high rate of speed. In fact, the driver, 30-year-old Zujey Martinez, from Norwich, Connecticut, admitted to the local police that she was driving at speeds in excess of 100 mph. At one point, she lost control of the car, hit several trees, and ended up on the roof but not before covering a distance of 450 feet.

The driver did manage to properly test the Audi’s passive safety features as she suffered only minor injuries following the crash.
