The famous skier Jon Olsson has found a new way to have fun on snow. Due to his injury he had to swap his skis for a 600 horsepower V8 race car called the Rebellion R2K. It turned out to be a much more exciting way of passing time than skiing. Jon’s driving skills are also pretty amazing.

Rebellion R2K is a road-legal prototype racer Jon had made for last year’s Gumball 3000 rally. It is based on the Ultima GT-R sports car and features a bespoke Le Mans-style body.

“This crazy idea turned out to be one of the most exciting mornings that I have ever had. Pushing full gas while sliding sideways on the top of an empty mountain while the sun is just dipping over the horizon is just hard to beat!” -Jon Olsson
