Jon Olsson's Audi RS6 DTM

 Over 900 hp engine with 18 karat gold anodized turbo chargers on a DTM widebody Audi RS6 sets the new standard.

Team Betsafe’s Swedish freeskiing legend Jon Olsson is famous for owning some of the most extravagant cars in the world. This time around Jon has built a machine that takes a strong claim to the title of the world’s meanest station wagon: the Audi RS6 DTM.

“I have always loved the crazy widebody style of DTM cars and it’s been a dream to build a similar car for the road, but I also need a car that has enough space to carry all my ski gear to the slopes, so the decision was made to see what we could do with an Audi RS6.” – Jon Olsson

Special 4X4 carbon fiber was not spared when building the car body, designed together with former Koenigsegg Chief Engineer Leif Tufvesson. Stertman Motorsport built up the extreme performance with only the best components from STM, Intrax, Movit and Milltek Sport.

The engine is now equipped with custom 18 karat gold anodized TTE9XX turbo chargers from The Turbo Engineers and the car is expected to reach up to 950hp – possibly even break the 1000hp mark with some race gas!

 

Oh My.....

If you could just get the RS6 over here....I saw one prepped like that in Mayfair London this Fall. Filthy.

Heck, I'd take the M5 Touring over here...... But not to be, I suppose

Hell, we can't even get the 535i Touring.  I've been looking for a used one, manual tranny, for more than a year with no luck.

I wonder what 18 karat gold anodized turbochargers do for performance.

Same company.

He did an R8 as well. RS6 Avant is drool-worthy before all the mods.

Does the gold anodized turbo charger have an impact on performance? Or is it more of an f-you look at the money I spent on my car thing?

He should auction his old ski cars for charity off at the beginning of the next ski season every year.  Barrett Jackson or Meecham could probably handle the details.

FWIW, gold foil is used as a heat reflective. I have gold tape on the inside of the heat shields on both my turbo cars. In this case, may be its to hold heat in the hot side of the turbo. The hot side likes heat, more energy to spin the turbine wheel.

 

Cool looking car. Wonder how that front air damn works if you happen to park to deep and bump the snow bank.
