Famed freeskier and alpine ski racer Jon Olsson is no stranger to campaigning wicked rides on the road. Most recently at the GT Polonia 2010 event, Olsson and a friend explored the roads and race tracks of Germany and Poland in his custom tuned Ultima GTR. The matte black supercar featured Red Bull and Yokohama graphics as it blasted its less than 2,200-lbs frame and 800-hp through Europe. The road-legal racer then disappeared as Olsson prepared for a complete makeover in anticipation for this year’s Gumball 3000.

Now after six months of development, Olsson unleashed his Rebellion R1k Ultima GTR project onto the streets of Stockholm for its maiden voyage. Unfortunately the car ran into some higher water temperatures so its Gumball adventure has been delayed. Instead Olsson will pilot Nissan GT-R (you know, the other GT-R) to make the first leg of the trip and plans to have the Rebellion join in a few days once its gremlins are figured out.

Check out the video of this devastatingly awesome piece of machinery after the jump:
