Someone stole Jon Olsson’s DTM-inspired 1,000bhp RS6 and burnt it to the ground
Tragic news! Earlier this week, some thieving gits pilfered the greatest RS6 to ever grace the planet – skier Jon Olsson’s amazing wide-arch snow-weapon – and decided to torch it.
Ten Things is unimpressed.
The car, admittedly already sold by Olsson, was being used on a photoshoot in the Netherlands when some gun-toting itchy-fingered crims took a liking to it. So much so, they decided to nab it.
But instead of abandoning the car when they stopped joyriding, the tea-leafs decided to set the super-wide-body RS6 ablaze.
All the hours of effort, ingenuity and hardcore hardware – including the two blingy 18-karat gold turbochargers that massaged the 4.0-litre V8 from 552bhp to a staggering 950-plus bhp – went up in smoke.
Being an optimistic and humble chap, Jon Olsson didn’t respond to the incident with hate-fuelled rage and anger, simply stating: ‘I am more motivated than ever to follow this build up with something just as good!’
We can’t wait to see what he comes up with. But until then, the epic RS6 has gone to the great graveyard in the sky. RIP.
