Jon Olsson Unveils His Custom Audi RS6+ ‘Phoenix’

Former professional skier and current YouTube sensation, Jon Olsson, used to be the proud owner of the world’s craziest Audi RS6.

Olsson had his RS6 outfitted with a bespoke bodykit inspired by DTM race cars, and oversaw its engine upgraded to beyond 1,000 hp. Unfortunately, the car’s life was cut short after Olsson sold it, when it was subsequently destroyed by fire after it was stolen from its new owner.

Eager to continue the legacy left behind by the RS6 DTM, Olsson has just unveiled his new RS6, dubbed Project Phoenix, courtesy of ABT Sportsline.

The first thing that’ll catch your attention is the wrap. On one side, it features a black camouflage design while on the other, it has a white camouflage design. Splitting the two designs is a red stripe running down the center of the performance wagon. In writing, such a design may seem odd, but on video, and in pictures, it looks very special.

Beyond the new wrap, Olsson’s RS6 sits on a set of custom wheels and has been transformed with ABT’s RS6+ package.

Ordinarily, ABT’s upgrades lift power from the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 of the RS6 Performance from 605 hp up to 705 hp and 880 Nm (649 lb-ft) of torque. However, we would not be surprised to learn that Olsson’s car has even more grunt than that. What we can say for sure is that a bespoke exhaust system has been fitted, potentially making this the loudest RS6 on the planet.

    Hate the paint job, but everything else is sick, including the wheels. He should have just made it all black.

    tacky, trying too hard.

    I hope that exhaust is selectable. It would get old pretty quick. I like a nice crackle and burble, but that sounds obnoxious.
