Jon Olsson’s Supercar Drifting Up Snow Slopes – Is This Crazy? (VIDEO)

As part of his Gumball 3000 Miami to Ibiza rally in June 2014, Jon Olsson has taken to the slopes in his road-legal race car. And the results are stupendous.

The R2K Rebellion was designed with Leif Tufvesson of Sweden, and weights in at 1000kg, wielding 600hp. It was fitted with studded tires for the occasion, and features a mid-mounted Corvette V8 in a Ultima GT-R chassis.

This is a change of tactics for Swedish free-skier Jon Olsson, but it is not a change of terrain. Drifting uphill in snow has never looked so fun. And it also sounds incredibly.

Take a look at some of these stunning shots below, and don’t forget to check the video out at the bottom!
