    This Ferocious Camo Audi RS6 Is Jon Olsson’s New Winter Ride (VIDEO)

    Swedish pro-skier, car nut and Gumball 3000 enthusiast Jon Olsson is almost as famous for his montorously fast cars as he is for his skiing.

    But for the next season, he chose an RS6 wagon instead of the Lamborghini’s  and seriously cool Audi R8 we’ve seen before. We think he must be getting on a bit.

    This Badass RS6 Wagon Is Jon Olsson's New Winter Ride

    No, not really, as the RS6 is faster than all these super cars on snow. This four wheeled drive Quattro car is a force to be reckoned with my friends.

    The is what Jon Olsson had this to say about it:

    Before I pick it up Stertman Motorsport is going to work their magic and give this thing some extra love. I have yet to decide exactly what to do, but I do know that a Milltek exhaust will be fitted as well as some dumped suspension by H&R, but we all know I like power and I am sure that when it leaves Stertman it will be a beast! Well it already is to be honest! I have never jumped into a stock car and have it blow my mind, this truly is the most impressive car I have ever driven, the only car that came close to impress me as much was the Agera R, so I think that says a lot!

    Wow, sounds amazing and we can’t wait to see it hooning the ski slopes. Watch the video below for the RS6 unveiling in Verbier:

    Xzibit Bugatti Veyron Gumball 3000

    The 2014 Gumball 3000 is quickly approaching and rapper Xzibit is the latest to update us on his whip. What will Gumball’s most notorious celebrity be bossing at this year?

    Xzibit going for the king of all super cars, this stunning 2010 Bugatti Veyron which has never been seen on the roads.


    Xzibit Bringing A Bugatti Veyron To Gumball 3000 2014

    The Veyron exterior is finished in sexy matte pearl with subtle hints of pink and has red accents that make their way from the powerful engine to the carbon fiber rear diffuser.

    Those custom wheels looks seriously sick and cover red brake callipers. No word on what his Gumball wrap is going to be, but this is Xzihibit so expect something ridiculously outlandish. He has a blank white canvass, so why not go for broke.

    Batman Tumbler To Take On Gumball 3000 Rally

    team galag batman tumbler

    The Gumball 3000 is to have its craziest edition this year, a replica street-legal Batman Tumbler, designed by Team Galag from Saudi Arabia.

    If the previous Batman films are anything to go by then expect a lot of trashed supercars, high speed chases and some high adrenaline action from Team Galag. We doubt it has all of Batman’s gadgets and weaponry but this is sure one fun, extravagant and damn right crazy edition to the already wacky Gumball Rally.  Will it make the list of the greatest cars ever at Gumball 3000?

    Motorauthority.com give you the low down…

    Generally speaking, the Gumball Rally has become a seemingly no-holds barred on-road playground for the world’s wealthy elite.

    We’re not fans of all the on-road antics but not every Gumballer runs the event in that manner, either. Many treat it as a way to see different parts of the world in all sorts of high-end machinery. For some, however, the types of vehicles that show up have become stale.

    Team Galag from Saudi Arabia is one such team that’s seen it all. In fact, they entered a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and a Lamborghini Aventador in last year’s Gumball. Now though, the team is ready to shake up the Gumball establishment. This is an impressive undertaking and it will wind up bringing a bit of Gotham to the streets of Europe.

    Team Galag is building a street-legal Tumbler... let that sink in for a moment.

    Team Galag is pairing up with Parker Brothers Concepts to create an exact replica of Batman’s favorite ride. Under the seemingly radar-resistant bodywork sits a 400-horsepower 6.2-liter V-8 engine surrounded by a tubular chassis. This build is being taken oh-so-seriously too, because it has to last the entire 3000 miles of the Gumball journey.

    To say we’re excited to see Team Galag pilot this through Europe is an understatement. This build gives Gumball a breath of fresh air, and returns a bit of the fun that the rally first brought to the point-to-point race world. If they bring in the Aventador as the “Bruce Wayne Support Vehicle,” then they will official have blown our minds.
