Jon Olsson never disappoints when it comes to badass cars and his latest project is no exception. Olsson and the team at Betsafe have officially built a machine that takes a strong claim to the title of the world’s meanest station wagon and it's called 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
The Audi RS6 is already an amazing car (you can see video of it before this project here) but after all the work thats been done, it's easy to say this is truly a one-of-a-kind machine. The body of the car includes 4X4 carbon fiber, designed together with former Koenigsegg Chief Engineer Leif Tufvesson. The engine now holds 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. We're expecting some pretty epic videos in the coming weeks!
The car was also fitted with a custom Black Titan suspension from Intrax and the biggest brake kit that Movit has for the RS6, and a super mega race exhaust kit from Milltek Sport.
Jon will drive this car for Team Betsafe in the Gumball 3000 Rally 2015.

Deadmau5 just took delivery of his new McLaren P1 and he shared a photo of it on Twitter with the caption, "Going for a drive! Brb!". Deadmau5's been waiting for this moment since last October when he shared this photo. Now he has something to distract him while he waits for his BAC Mono!
Los Angeles Lakers, Julius Randle has added a black-on-black Range Rover to his garage, alongside his "dream car", his white Porsche Panamera.
Randle chose black Forgiato rims, fitted by Los Angeles, RDBLA.
Since his first game of 2015 ended in a broken leg, putting him out for the rest of the season, the Range Rover seems the perfect vehicle to convalesce in, especially since he is also recovering from foot surgery to fix up an old high school injury.
It's been a while since we've seen Kim Kardashian switch things up but last month, Platinum Motorsport hinted to the fact that they were giving her and Kanye's rides a full makeover and over the last few days, Kim's been spotted in two different cars. The first, a new silver Range Rover that looks like it's either the Autobiography or the long wheel base model. And yesterday, Kim was spotted driving around in a new grey Rolls Royce Ghost with Platinum plates. Platinum Motorsport has yet to share photos of Kim and Kanye's new rides but from the looks of it, grey is the new black...?
Question is, where's Kim's G63?! Is the G out and the Rover in??

Here's a photo that Platinum shared last month with the caption, "We are updating the entire fleet for our dear long time friend the beautiful @kimkardashian & the man him self Mr. #KANYEWEST - We can't wait to introduce the new color scheme that will yet again set the trend in the automotive industry! Anyone have any guesses ? We will give you a clue! #YEEZYBOOST Inspired!"
Apart from her long modeling career and even longer legs, Jodie Kidd is renowned for her love of cars. When she's not on TV presenting classic car shows, she's climbing into racing overalls.
Despite admitting to selling some of her cars when she became a mother, including a Maserati, the supermodel felt the itch and purchased this Jaguar F-Type a car she affectionately calls, "Ole girl".
It's not often you find a supermodel with a deep and passionate love affair with cars, especially a racer and a participant in the Gumball 3000 Rally. With legs that long, the only question remaining is: what car is the tightest fit for a supermodel?
Her reply was the legendary Ford GT-40.
