Meet Leon the RS6, Jon Olsson’s latest toy
Jon Olsson, famous Swedish freestyle skier and car aficionado, has rolled out his newest custom vehicle. Based on the С8 Audi RS6 Avant chassis and tech, it comes to fill in the gap left by the legendary Olsson RS6 DTM when that one was stolen and torched by robbers back in 2015.
Jon says his new RS currently has to make do with ‘only’ 785 hp (585 kW), but the power should go up to anywhere between 850 and 1,000 hp (634 – 745 kW) by the end of next week, thanks to the efforts of Stertman Motorsport designing high-end turbochargers for the model.
In turn, the body kit stems from Bifrost Automotive. The unique Leon the RS6 sports a massive front spoiler, side skirt extensions, and a rear diffuser with side elements.
Another major highlight comes in the elegant shape of Brixton Forged Wheels with their high-tech AeroRings. The carbon-fiber inserts can be removed at any time, but to us, they still look quite novel and besides, a perfect fit on the RS6.
Wrapping up the changes are a lowering kit and an utterly fantastic black/white vinyl wrap set off by the red lower body accents. Jolly well done, Jon!
