On Thursday, a video resurfaced on social media which allegedly showed an Audi R8, which costs about R3 million depending on the model, struggling to keep up with a much cheaper Volkswagen Caddy.

The video was posted on Facebook by South Africa Live, along with the caption: "No matter what you drive there's always a old VW faster than you... Audi R8 chasing a Caddy bakkie somewhere in SA."

The video is taken from inside the Audi R8 and the driver is heard saying the Caddy reached speeds of 250km/h to 260km/h - which we want to point out is way above the lawful speed on highways.
