Those Audi RS6 DTM thief-arsonists weren’t messing around.
Remember earlier this year when we told you about professional skier Jon Olsson’s super awesome Audi RS6 Avant? Well, we’ve got some bad news. Following a truly bizarre series of events, that car is now a fiery heap of ashes, and it’s not because someone crashed it.
Professional skier Jon Olsson owns a Gumball 3000 Audi RS6 DTM. Most gearheads have only fantasized about driving a car like this (1,000 horsepower!!), but what about riding in the backseat as a passenger? Olsson teamed up with Uber to surprise unsuspecting Swedes with a taxi trip in a supercar.
[Yes, Jon Olsson’s Audi RS6 DTM attacking the snow is just as ridiculous as we expected. Go, chase the dream or something!]
While you might have to be a big air freestyle skiing champion to run around in a badass RS6 Wagon, Audi Sweden is giving fifty people the opportunity to get the same look and all-wheel drive with an A4 Avant 2.0 TDI.
Swedish pro-skier and proper car nut Jon Olsson is famous for using outrageously fast cars for getting to the slopes. But for the next season, he chose an RS6 instead of the supercars we've seen before. I guess he's getting older.
You know what's entirely overrated? Snowmobiles, that's what. They think they're so freaking great, cutting through snow and ice at high speeds. Supercars can do it just as well, even if the cost of entry is just a tad bit higher.
Swedish freestyle skier Jon Olsson has got himself another four-wheel-drive supercar, but this time it's not a Lamborghini. Or, well, not really Lamborghini. It's a carbon fiber-widebody Audi R8 tuned by PPI with a look as black as Tara Reid's lungs. And you thought your Subaru was the ultimate all-weather machine.
You think your gal has champagne taste? Jon Olsson, the Swedish professional skier and all-around extreme athlete, has just procured a second Lamborghini — this one's a Gallardo — to drive across Europe between ski events.
