Swedish professional freeskier and alpine ski racer Jon Olsson is most known for his abilities on the snow, but he has become quite known on the aftermarket automotive scene over the past few years due to his love for fast cars.
Last year we took a look at the spectacular Camouflage Ski Transporter Lamborghini Gallardo LP560 owned by the famous skier, and now we take a look at his latest creation in what he calls “the most extreme R8 in the world.” This Audi R8 has been tuned by the team at PPI, and pumps a staggering 600 horsepower out of the V10 motor. The vehicle has been equipped with 10 layers of clear coat over the paint and carbon fiber to ensure that this thing can take a beating in any weather conditions. The vehicle has also been widened, and now stands wider than a Bugatti Veyron, all while having the same power to weight ratio as an R8 LMS race car. Of course what would one of Jon Olsson’s vehicles be without the bespoke ski box on top of the car equipped with LED lighting and a ski boot warmer that runs off an independent power source as to not drain the vehicle’s power source.
