Just after this year’s Gumball 3000 Rally was over, news started showing up claiming that Jon Olsson will be selling his ludicrous Audi RS6 to raise money for a bespoke car for next year. Initially, some rushed to say they were unfounded but as it turns out, we were right and the car’s been already sold.
Nowadays, the car is being driven around the Netherlands, by the same man that owns Auto Leitner, a shop in the Dutch city of Alkmaar. Since his business is selling bespoke, rare cars, it was only natural that he was attracted by the car of the Swedish skier.

We don’t have the financial details of the deal, but we reckon it wasn’t cheap either. The RS6 and its 4-liter twin-turbo V8 were drastically modified to keep up with the pack at the 2015 Gumball 3000 Rally.

That includes a complete DTM exterior kit that made it look like an alien spaceship and enough power to make it fly as well. 560 HP definitely weren’t enough so the car received new turbochargers under the supervision of a certain ex-Koenigsegg chief engineer.

The total output went up to 950 HP and it can go over the 1,000 HP psychological barrier easily too while keeping all four wheels on the ground as well. We saw it during Gumball and we have to admit that it was pretty impressive.

Nowadays, it seems like it’s become a daily driver for the owner’s wife that recently posted a picture of the car on Facebook. As it turns out, not only the power of the RS6 can come in handy but also its 566 liters (20 cubic feet) of luggage space.
