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.
Manchild Matt Farah says the 710 hp STaSIS V10 R8 is so good it leaves him speechless. Unfortunately, when he can't speak he lets out an unnerving maniacal laugh. It's the only thing that'll make you want more commentary.
While I was at Infineon to drive the STaSIS S5 a couple weeks back, I kept seeing this silver blur howling past everything on the track. It looked like an old Quattro… but that fast?
The last time I blew past the limits of my driving ability in a big howling V8 and hooned into a turn way too fast, I was at Altamont Speedway and I spun out in a most dramatic fashion. Now I'm in a car worth 110 times as much, leadfooting it down the hill at Infineon, right at the Chute, and I'm totally into that…
