Gumball 3000 2012: Jon Olsson is Back, with Team Storm Troopers

Nobody ever thought that Jon Olsson would miss this year’s Gumball Rally after the Aline Ski Racer’s stunts from the past and of course he hasn’t. Olsson is tackling the event in his Audi R8 PPI Razor, so he’ll be having quite a lot of fun.

How come, you ask? It’s simple, the German supercar has received a piece of American tuning, in the form of a STaSIS supercharged kit. Olson is joining Team Storm Troopers, so his R8 will ride alongside other two custom rides that you can see in the adjacent images: a Lamborghini Gallardo and a Chevrolet Camaro SS. They guys didn’t wait for their cars to be shipped to New York, performing a burnout in the Camaro on the streets of Stockholm, as you can see in the video above.

The 2012 Gumball Rally is taking participants on the following route: New York City (start, May 25th); Toronto, Canada (May 25th); Indianapolis (May 26th-27th); Kansas City (May 28th); Santa Fe (May 29th); Las Vegas (May 30th); Los Angeles (finish, May 31st).
