Lamborghini has been one of my favorite supercars since I was a kid. They could even be argued as a major contributor to the fact that I’m a lifelong gearhead, and I’m sure that I’m not alone in that. Like many other car enthusiasts, I’ve dreamed about that moment of being handed the keys to your brand new Lambo and sitting in the driver’s seat giddy with anticipation of hearing the motor come to life for the first time, but that dream is reality for other gearheads in the world, specifically Jon Olsson.
Olsson has been known to have a serious affection for cars, and if we might add he seems to have fantastic taste as well. Since his primary source of income and notoriety come from his professional skiing career he spends a lot of time in snowy winter conditions. Now most supercars are basically worthless in the snow because most of them have rear wheel drive and if you’ve ever driven in the snow with rear wheel drive you know it doesn’t work out very well. So most of the cars Olsson’s had over the years have been Audi’s or Lamborghini’s with maybe a few exceptions.
Not only is Olsson a professional skier, but now he has another title to add to his resume and that’s a professional YouTube Vlogger. He’s been putting out daily Vlogs for quite some time now and for the most part, it’s just showing the many different hot spot travel locations he frequents all over the world. But since he’s a gearhead at heart there’s the occasional badass car video like when he attended the Ascari Racetrack Experience.
Well in his latest release it shows him arriving at an airport in Italy where he’s picking up his new Lamborghini Huracan. Like most of his other cars, this was no ordinary Huracan in any sense of the word. First of all the looks, it’s of course been fully customized from top to bottom. It’s been wrapped with a camo pattern that Olsson designed himself and is very similar to the ones used on his previous cars as well as the carbon fiber ski box that’s been strategically mounted using custom fabricated brackets. This car is absolutely gorgeous and there’s no arguing that, plus we thought the red lettering on the tires was a nice touch.
Now when a car is that badass it’s really saying something when I say it sounds just as good as it looks. But remember we are talking about the Audi-sourced 5.2L V10 that in stock form creates just over 600hp, and this particular example is not even close to stock. Olsson had his Huracan was taken to the Stockholm-based tuner, Stertman Motorsport and asked them to make it as fast as it could possibly be while maintaining 100% reliability. The end result is literally what dreams are made of.
It’s been fitted with a supercharger from VF Engineering as well as upgraded carbon fiber intakes and custom exhaust system then tuned to perfection so that it’s as reliable as it was coming off the dealer floor. But now it’s claimed to have over 800hp and while they don’t have exact figures the actual performance of the car just yet, Olsson does claim it went from 100-200km/h (62-124mph) in just 5.3 seconds during testing and has been fined tuned since. For the record that’s up in the Bugatti Veyron territory, so this thing is no joke.
Olsson plans on running the car through its paces over the next little while and says he will soon be releasing more detailed numbers regarding the perfromace. But in the meantime sit back and admire the beauty of this fantastic car, plus you get the added bonus of whatching Olsson’s buddy bet $10,000 on red or black at the Roullette table.
