At least one magazine has not heard that print is dead. Not only is Intersection magazine -- where cars meet fashion -- not dead, it's doing so well that it can trash an Audi TT for a photo shoot. The TT, a 3.2 V6, was submerged in a pool in Chipping Norton, England, for the magazine's cover and an inside spread. And since you can't exactly go selling cars that have been used as submarines, the car was destroyed afterward.

We hope they at least removed the engine, since it didn't appear in the shoot. Then maybe they can dip the V6 in chocolate for the next issue. Follow the jump to watch video of the shoot.

      How do we really know that the car was destroyed? And what happened to the girl afterwards ;-)

      What a bunch of whiners - it's a freaking mass produced transportation appliance. Want one? They'll make more.

      Ah jesus get over it. It's not like they ruined a rare and sacred classic. The first generation TT sold well over 250k copies, this one will likely surpass it. Whats one casualty for the sake of art? Seeing as thousands of these will likely be crashed into parked cars by silverspooned frat boys, I don't mind sacrificing one for a sexy photoshoot.

      Print is dead. Hmmm. I would stop and read the rest of your post, but the latest copy of Autoweek just arrived...

      One less VW on the road... art is definitely a good thing.

      Every single person at Intersection magazine should be taken out back and shot.

      The stupid so called background music sucked soooo much that I could not view the video all the way

      Doesn't a copy of Adobe Photoshop cost less than an Audi TT, especially considering the final picture looks so Photoshopped anyway?

      I hope it was test model, otherwise that's just dumd... like the factory couldn't provide a car without engine, electronics and other expensive stuff

      That is an awesome picture on the cover.

        Hasn't anyone ever heard of Photoshop? Why ruin a car to get that cover picture for a magazine while a Photoshop guru can produce a nearly identical image.

      someone put a girl on top of a drowned car?? and they later killed the car because it drowned??
      am telling ya folks, this car will haunt the girl for the rest of her life, the car on top of the girl, in her bedroom, probably on her bed.
      i could have photoshopped all dry shoots of the girl and audi and gave them the same effect, well, if they gave me the audi later. fair deal, huh ...?? i won't mind the girl either[that was nasty].
