Jon Olsson’s latest snowplow

Jon Olsson is one of those people for whom the term ‘living the dream’ was invented for. The highly-respected professional freeskier and alpine ski racer from Sweden, not only holds nine Winter X-Games medals, but every time we see him, he has a new car – that we want!

We first saw him a couple of years ago in London, chilling in his Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV on the Gumball 3000 start line. That beast made way for a Camouflage-wrapped Ski Transporter Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, which has now been superseded by this PPI Design R8 Razor GTR.

As fellow regulars of a certain car forum, we knew that Jon had his eye on an Audi, after he started a thread asking whether it was possible to make a road-going version of the R8 LMS, and this is what he’s ended up with. Completely re-skinned with PPI Design’s wide-track carbon fibre body program and sitting on ADV.1 wheels, the 5.2-litre V10 powerplant has been treated to a STaSIS supercharger kit, resulting in 529 kW (710 hp) and 709 Nm (523 lb/ft) of torque.

We love it, especially the fact that its raised rear wing doubles as a support for that all-important carbon fibre ski box.
