This 1,000 HP Audi RS6 Avant Was Stolen In An Armed Robbery Then Burnt To A Crisp


So it goes.

Last summer, Swedish professional free skier Jon Olson sold his customized 1,000 HP+ Audi RS6 Avant. It was one of his favorite cars, especially for the Gumball 3000. It was built with some help from former Koenigsegg chief engineer, Lief Tufvesson. So why’d he sell it? He was made an offer he couldn’t refuse. The new owner was a dealership in Amsterdam and, for a while, all was well. Until now. Details are still coming in, but what we can confirm is that the RS6 was stolen during an armed robbery.

It was being filmed in Amsterdam's Piet Hein tunnel for a promotion when two guys with guns showed up in a VW van. They switched cars and sped off in the RS6. The cops later found it abandoned and burnt to a crisp; the robbers set it on fire to cover their tracks. More details will hopefully come in, but for now check out this fan-made tribute.
