What do hardcore skiers do all summer when there's not enough snow to have fun? They buy fast cars and have fun. Well, at least that's what Jon Olsson has been doing the past few years. In 2015, it's all about the tuned RS6, a German wagon that few people ever get to sit in. Or is it?
Betsafe, the company that is sponsoring Olsson during this year's leg of the Gumball 3000, has just announced the 900 horsepower monster RS6 will be available through Uber in Stockholm. That's right, you could arrive at your destination to the sound of machine gun fire (that's what we think the engine sounds like).

Considering he's supposed to be in the Gumball 3000 later this month, we wonder how Jon has time for all this. What we do know for sure is that the stock 560 HP seemingly wasn't enough for the skier. He had the 4-liter twin-turbo fitted with a set of custom 18 karat gold anodized TTE9XX turbochargers that allow the mill to put out 950 HP now. On race fuel, that number grows to 1000 hp, though we doubt the Audi will be guzzling that during the Stockholm cruise.

This is the last of many awesome cars Jon Olsson drove over the years. The list includes an Audi R8, a Lamborghini Gallardo and a Murcielago, most of which were pushed hard during the Gumball 3000 rally.

However, the most extreme thing he has owned is the Rebellion R2K, which is a bespoke machine that looks a lot like the 2015 Audi R18 e-tron quattro race car.
