Winter has been put on notice.
Last year, Freeskier and Alpine Ski Racer, Jon Olsson, showed off his Lamborghini Gallardo and Audi R8 that were built to tackle winter and provide high-performance transportation for his skiing equipment. They were tuned, they were fast, and they were quite possibly the best modes of winter transportation. Now, Mr. Olsson has unveiled his latest “Winter Mobile” for 2014 – an Audi RS 6 Avant.
Right from the factory, the Audi RS 6 Avant has everything a skier needs to conquer a harsh winter and then some. Its 4.0 TFSI engine sports two turbochargers feeding eight hungry cylinders to churn out 560 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. of torque. This power is sent to all four wheels resulting in a 0-62 mph sprint time of 3.9 seconds while its large rear hatch eats equipment with its spacious appetite.
The car is so impressive right from the factory, that it even had Olsson excited. “I have never jumped into a stock car and have it blow my mind, this truly is the most impressive car I have ever driven,” said the Professional Skiier. “The only car that came close to impress me as much was the Agera R, so I think that says a lot!”
Jon Olsson’s 2014 Winter Mobile isn’t staying stock either. The Audi RS 6 Avant was already fitted with striking winter camouflage to match its surroundings. The winter wagon is also being sent to Stertman Motorsports in Nynäshamn, Sweden to receive a few modifications including a new H&R suspension and Milltek exhaust system. The Swedish tuner also has quite the power upgrade in store for the 4.0 TFSI engine, so expect well over 600 ponies chewing through snow and ice this winter.
Thanks for inspiring us during this cold and wintery season, Jon Olsson.
