Jon Olsson's 950 HP Audi RS6 Serves as Uber Ride from Hell

      One of the assets that have put Uber under the spotlights is the premium aura of the service. Nobody can deny the good feeling you get when riding in something else than traditional taxis. We are here now to show you the peak of the Uber experience, namely a hellish ride in a 950 HP Audi RS6.

The driver? Swedish athlete Jon Olsson, who's well known for his automotive adventures. As we previously told you, Jon Olsson is part of the Uber landscape in Stockholm, and now we're back on the topic with a video that shows what feeling and emotions his passengers experience.

As if the Audi RS is not violent enough in stock trim, Jon Olsson decided to have his example of the German family machine seriously modified. The 4-liter V8 has gone from 560 to a whopping 960 HP. Most of the credit for this goes to a pair of TTE9XX turbochargers, which turn to extreme solutions such as an 18 karat gold treatment.

In fact, the station wagon will deliver about 1,000 HP when fed race fuel. We expect to return on this particular matter soon since Jon Olsson will be using his RS6 for the 2015 Gumball 3000 Rally next week. We'll be attending the event and return with live impressions.

Meanwhile, we're inviting you to watch what appears to be a group of impressionable passengers. It's hilarious to see them getting uber-excited while the driver is obviously as relaxed as during a Spa (Francorchamps?) treatment.

Then again, with so much power on tap and an exhaust sound that would make a supercar cringe, it's difficult for the passengers not to let the adrenaline flood their system.
