Pro Skier Jon Olsson Shows Off Insane 810-HP Rolls-Royce Wraith

Jon Olsson is a Swedish professional freeskier, but he’s perhaps best known for his eclectic custom cars, which have included a 1,000 horsepower Audi RS6 and a Lamborghini Huracan with a ski box on its roof.

Olsson’s latest creation might be his maddest yet. He recently ditched his custom Huracan and began looking for something a bit more practical, eventually settling on a Rolls-Royce Wraith. He couldn’t just drive around in a stock Wraith, however, so he quickly got to work customizing it.

The original plan, Olsson says, was to transform the Wraith into an off-road type vehicle so he could fit some beefy winter tires on it (he is a skier after all). This turned out to be a bit too ambitious, so he settled for something a bit tamer. However the result was still crazy – even by Olsson’s standards. The car, which he’s nicknamed George, makes 810 horsepower from its twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V12 and also boasts rally lights, a safari-style roof rack and Olsson’s signature winter camouflage vinyl wrap.

While not as unhinged as his Lamborghini V10-powered Rebellion R2K or his Audi R8 PPI Razor GTR, Olsson’s Wraith is certainly one of the wildest custom Rolls-Royces we’ve ever seen. He posted a video of him doing a couple of quick burnouts in the car and going over some of its features, so be sure to check it out embedded above.
