Audi R8 Razor GTR

Jon Olsson’s Audi R8 Razor GTR is over-the-top

Take what Jon Olsson does on skis, add in an Audi R8, and give it a big dose of PPI Automotive design, and you’ve got one incredible ride.

What does Jon Olsson do for kicks when he isn’t on the ski slopes performing a switch double rodeo 1080? He has a garage full of incredible cars that he has fun driving to the events. Jon already has a Rebellion R1k Ultima GTR and a Lamborghini Gallardo in his stable of cars, but since Audi is a major sponsor of Jon Olsson, he asked the German automaker for an R8 for the platform for his special ride.

So in order to satisfy his need for speed, he turned to PPI Automotive Design GmbH in Stuttgart Germany, who is an exclusive tuner of Audi Automobiles. PPI took a stock Audi R8 with 10 cylinders, and transformed it into a one-off Razor GTR supercar. They started by removing and replacing every body panel with 600 gram heavy weave Carbon Fiber. Next, they replaced every piece of glass with lightweight racing-grade Makrolon.

PPI then took the R8 V-10 and added performance upgrades to pump up the horsepower to well over 600. The German tuning company says the R8 Razor GTR is wider than a Bugatti Veyron and has the same power-to-weight ratio as an R8 LMS race car.

The all wheel drive, one-off masterpiece is truly an “extreme winter” supercar and was completely re-engineered to suit Jon’s personal tastes. The custom ski box on top of the car, was one of Olsson’s personal requirements, and features LED lighting and a ski boot warmer that runs off an independent power source.
