Audi R8 donor kills himself by jumping off Table Mountain


No this is not an April Fools Joke… It isn’t even April, come to think of it. The same man who donated a R1.9m Audi R8 V10 to car guards on Table Mountain last year has leaped to his death at the very same mountain overlooking Cape Town.

In case you haven’t already heard – property developer Rob Taylor took a cable car to the top of the mountain on Sunday before doing doing a spread eagle over 100m to land on Africa Ledge. He took the leap in front of everyone else enjoying the views.

This guy was a little bit of a nutter saying that Table Mountain was the gateway to the next dimension in an earlier interview. Right.

Im a guy with a very particular view of life... im not quite sure what that view is just yet, but when I find out I'll be sure to let you know...

      1. Maybe you just go mad if you get lank cash?? Still though- another dimension on Table Mountain is quite a leap. See what I did there? Distasteful. Maybe. Funny. Definately.

  1. Man, I hope there were no kids on the mountain!
    Selfish people! REALLY!!!

    He must have had a crazy person syndrome happening in his mind…
    People don’t just do shit like that – when he gave away the car someone should’ve sent him to a shrink!

  2. it takes a lot of power to keep a portal open long enough for an inter-dimensional jump. And with Koeberg being the way it is, it is no surprise that the gateway closed. #blameeskom

    Jumping in front of other people, possible kids is fuct up!

      Classic dude… hahaha. Agreed on the jumping in front of other people. Shameless and very unthoughtful of other people. Not cool!

    2. @Morne… That is the best comment I’ve read in AGES…. bwahahahahaha 🙂

      You just made my day!!!

        1. Liesl, thanks for the offer. A R8 will go a long way to keep my happy. Any colour really, I am not that difficult to please!

              1. Nooooo! Have u seen the price of petrol?
                I will let you keep the fur and the mini disco ball hanging from the mirror…
