Superb Swedish Skier Supercars

Supercars can run in the snow.

There's a decent chance that not many people in the U.S. know who Jon Olsson is. For those who aren't avid skiing fans, Jon Olsson is a Swedish skier with skills to pay the bills. Those bills are primarily automotive in nature, as Olsson owns a ton of awesome cars. These aren't just any cars, but all-wheel-drive supercars. If you've ever wanted to see what a professional skier from Scandinavia would do to an Audi R8 or Nissan GT-R, then continue reading on. Spoiler alert: all of these cars are snow-friendly.

PPI Design Audi R8 Razor GTR is covered in carbon fiber, dropping its weight an impressive 551 pounds. Combine that with the R8 Razor GTR's 710hp V10 engine and you get a 0 to 62 time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 208mph. And it comes with a ski rack.

This Lamborghini Gallardo has a questionable paint job, but you can't knock it for its commitment to skiing. Olsson had his Gallardo specially fittedwith a ski rack that could withstand speeds of up to 159mph. Say what you want about the winter camouflage, but the ski rack is legit.

It's tough to imagine another GT-R that has seen as much snow as the Olsson Winter Edition. The skier's take on Godzilla features a ski rack, an all-black paint job and a tacky vinyl wrap promoting his site. This car may not be as eye-catching as the rest, but it's tough to hate on a GT-R for any reason.

If you didn't envy Olsson's collection of cars, chances are good that you will after you see the Rebellion R1k Ultima GTR. This ultra-lightweight supercar served as one of the skier's rides during the 2011 Gumball 3000 (the other being a GT-R). The only thing it's missing is a ski rack.
