Jon Olsson is a Swedish freeskier and alpine ski racer who also happens to own one of the wildest custom cars in the world. Called the Rebellion R2K, it is based on an Ultima, has a body that looks like an Audi R18, and it packs a claimed 600 horsepower into a package weighing around 2,205 pounds (1,000kg).

In what he claims is a test for this year's Gumball 3000 rally, Olsson sprints the car up a Swedish ski slope. Snow pours off the rear wheels as they spin, but the Rebellion can definitely hustle. It's not likely there is going to be this much snow during the Gumball, but Olsson proves that his car could withstand it. Even if you never wanted to see snow again after this awful winter, scroll down to check out this stunt.

      I don't see any peaks, just a bunny slope at best.

      I do not know, these are either slow pigs, or they are the real deal.. I do not know, why is Audi and these cars avoiding Tudor sports car racing? Are they afraid of getting their asses handed to them by 'low tech' daytona prototypes?

        Tudor didn't allow Audi/ Le Mans LMP1 cars. They didn't allow them not only because of cost and that there are fewer of the much more costly LMP1 teams in the US than Daytona but it would have been way to easy for the LMP1 cars especially for a factory backed Audi R18 or a Porsche 919 to beat a Daytona prototype. It would have been like it was a few years back in the American Le Mans Series when Audi was in LMP1 and Porsche in LMP2 both factory teams won week after week while the private LMP1 teams were luck to get third or forth overall behind the factory LMP2 Porsches and LMP1 Audis. Also, LMP1 cars especially the new Audis and Porsche start well over 500 hp then have around another 200 hp from the electric motors ( thats a rumor but nobody knows for sure since the 2014 regs do not limit the electric systems and the teams won't say what they are making) where the Daytona I believe is limited on power and tech to keep cost down. So no Audi is not avoiding it nor are the other LMP1 teams they were just not allowed in because of those reasons. There was a rumor last year Audi wanted the rules changed just to allow LMP1 cars in the Sebring 12 hours and Tudor still said no which is sad if true because it would have been awesome to see all those classes racing on that track!

          hyvee7; Thank you for a very comprehensive and mature answer. I appreciate that, Now I know why they are not racing in North America.
