Jon Olsson rids his Lambo for a Rally-Ready Rolls-Royce Wraith

Man of mystery, Jon Olsson, is known for never opting for subtlety when it comes to purchasing a new ride. However, the same can’t be said for practicality; although his famous AWD Lamborghini Huracan held a mountain ski box like non other, the two-seater wasn’t equipped with space for his friends and family. So he’s decided that it just won’t do anymore.

So, Olsson has outed with the old Lambo and is in with a new and modified 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith. The Wraith packs in 810 horsepower, features 24-inch forged rimms and has had an impressive camouflaged paint job. Originally, the ski legend wanted to go for an off-road, winterized look with the Rolls which explains the extra lights and magnetic rooftop jerrycan cage. However, as the project dragged into June, the team ended splitting the difference with a summer-rally inspired set-up.

A Rolls-Royce coupe is certainly the opposite to what most people have in mind whilst thinking of a performance machine. Although, George’s 6.6 litre twin turbo V-12 certainly sounds impressive as it growls through a custom Quicksilver exhaust. The team at Absolut Motors have also lowered and tightened the suspension, which has nodded to Olssen that he won’t have an invite to a Rolls-Royce event anytime soon.

Minutes after the Wrath was complete of its make-over, Olssen and his team hopped in and drove over 1,400 miles from Absolut Motors’ shop in the Netherlands to his house in Marbella, Spain.

Olssen also has visions of turning the already impressive motor into a snowplow. He promises a winter-ready “George 2.0” by the end of 2017. Who knows what motors he has planned for 2018, and indeed what cosmetic differences he will add to them.
