Jon Olsson’s Audi RS6 DTM Plays In The Snow: Video
Jon Olsson may have decided to sell his fabulous Rebellion R2K race car, but that doesn’t mean the Swedish skier has given up making ridiculous car videos or joining upcoming editions of the Gumball 3000 rally. On the contrary, he just made a comeback to showcase his wild, bespoke Audi RS6 on a snowy road in cold Scandinavia.
Unlike most other videos that include a car and a lot of snow. Olsson’s doesn’t feature any drifting whatsoever. Instead, Jon uses his beefed-up wagon as a snow plow, eventually turning it into an Audi-badged popsicle. The footage, which comes with the message "Chase the Dream. No Matter What," also acts as a promo for the 2015 Gumball 3000 rally, set to begin in Stockholm, Sweden, on May 23rd and reach Las Vegas seven days later.
As usual, Olsson will join the event to showcase his newest ride, in this case being the 2015 Audi RS6 DTM. Racing fans will be quick to point out that there’s no such thing as a DTM-spec RS6, but I will remind them that Jon’s cars are as bespoke as they get. Though it might not compete in the series, the RS6 above has been inspired by DTM race cars, receiving a new body kit with flared wheel arches and numerous carbon-fiber parts, including a front splitter, front canards and side skirts. Power comes from the same 4.0-liter V-8 motivating the stock RS6, but output has been increased from 560 to over 900 horsepower.
