Jon Olsson’s 1/2 Participation

While Jon Olsson may have snubbed the US by not participating in the US half of the Rally, he is piloting his Rebellion from Scotland to Ibiza. Along with his Rebellion, he also has his Audi RS6 Avant in the Gumball as well.

Jon Olsson’s New Years Resolution FAIL

Over the last few days we’ve seen various media from Jon Olsson talking about flying a G5 Jet around and over the Gumball US which honestly has come off a bit cocky but what is really shocking is seeing this from early in the year.

Jon Olson - Gumball Resolution

If you are going to be talking to the media with statements like “no car, no stress, no problems” at least be real about it that you wanted to have a car in the Gumball but failed to execute the steps needed to make it happen! The Gumball isn’t a one-foot in and one-foot out type of rally. If you are going on Gumball and are known for being a top Gumballer, go all in. Don’t half ass it!

Video: Jon Olsson Drifts His Rebellion In The Snow

If you thought schmobbin’ through the snow in Ken Block’s Ford RaptorTRAX was sick, then you need to see this video of Jon Olsson drifting his Rebellion R2K up a ski hill in Sweden. All of this was done in preparation for the upcoming Gumball3000 this June.

“This crazy idea turned out to be one of the most exciting mornings that I have ever had. Pushing full gas while sliding sideways on the top of an empty mountain while the sun is just dipping over the horizon is just hard to beat!” -Jon Olsson

Video: Jon Olsson’s RS6 In Action

Jon Olsson’s referred to his new Audi RS6 as a “beast” and after watching this video, it’s obvious that he’s not joking. The video was made for a Gumball 3000 reunion with Team Betsafe recently and luckily they caught a few shots of the RS6 in action. The Milltek exhaust system is insane. Check it out below!

Jon Olsson Adds Another Winter Mobile To His Lineup

Not too long ago, Jon Olsson picked up a new Audi RS6 and had it wrapped in his signature camo.  In the past, when Olsson had his Audi R8, he also had a matching blacked out Audi Q7.  So now that he has the RS6, he had to pick up a new Audi Q7 and wrap it in matching camo as well. What I love about Olsson is that he’s not just buying these cars to park the in the garage, he’s actually driving them — A LOT. According to one of his blog posts he drove his last Q7 close to 80000km in a pretty short amount of time.

So what do you think of the matching camo look?
