A sad day has befallen Red Bull-backed freestyle Swedish skier Jon Olsson. His beloved Audi RS6 DTM wagon was stolen earlier this week and discovered burned to the ground. It had 950 hp. It was awesome.
reported yesterday that while on the way to a photoshoot in the Netherlands, the new owner, Douwe Leitner, found himself held at gunpoint at a gas station. However, the robbers didn't think to take Leitner's keys from his pocket after grabbing the car, which meant that they were not able to start the car again after switching it off.
After driving the car to an abandoned parking complex, the robbers then set fire to the bespoke RS6, most likely in order to destroy the evidence.
Jon Olsson posted this photo to after the car was discovered. "Who would do such a thing!" he wrote.
But, he is also staying positive. On his , Jon also wrote, ". . . luckily everyone is unhurt and safe. But now I am more motivated than ever to follow this build up with something just as good!"
