    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!

    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.

    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:
