The original output of 624 hp just wasn't powerful enough.
Swedish pro skier Jon Olsson is known for his somewhat wild tastes in all-wheel drive supercars and other exotics. He spends big on the car itself from the factory, and spends even more giving it his own unique signature style. Lamborghinis is one of his favorite brands, but he doesn't limit himself solely to Italian exotics. This Rolls-Royce Wraith is proof, and it just so happens to be for sale. Dutch language website Autoleitner.nl is offering the Olsson customized Wraith for sale, modified by Absolute Motors.
The specs on this car are insane. The twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 remains, but was upgraded from its original 624 hp to its current output of 810 hp. Olsson clearly wanted to be noticed in this thing, aside from the exterior paint job. For example, the big coupe has been outfitted with a bespoke Quicksilver exhaust and is claimed to be the loudest Rolls-Royce in history. Other exterior modifications include the familiar roof rack featuring six LED spotlights, massive 24-inch alloy wheels and, of course, the trademark Olsson black and white wrap. The car was first registered in 2015 and has so far been driven a little over 8,000 miles. So, how much? The asking price is 275,000 euros, or about $324,000.
Not bad, actually, especially since considering a brand-new Rolls-Royce Wraith starts at around $318,000. Oh, and one more thing: Olsson named this car 'George the Rolls'. It'll be up to the next owner whether or not to keep that name, but it does sort of suit the car, doesn't it? Photos courtesy of Autoleitner.nl.
