900+HP Audi RS6 Wagon Joins Uber Fleet for a Day

Freeskier Jon Olsson gives lifts around Stockholm, Sweden, in his custom RS6 for a promotion with the Betsafe gambling website.

It’s pretty rare to hail an Uber car that makes more than 300 horsepower, but a few lucky folks in Stockholm, Sweden were picked up in a station wagon making three times as much.

The high-powered ride came courtesy of Swedish freeskier Jon Olsson, who partnered with Uber Stockholm and Betsafe, a gambling website, to offer free Uber lifts in his custom Audi RS6 DTM, a wagon that makes over 900 horsepower.

Uber reportedly received more than 5,000 requests once the special RS6 popped up on the ride service app last Friday. The wagon was available for 6 hours and only 11 users were selected.

Betsafe released a short video of Olsson picking up the lucky riders, and not surprisingly no one was in a particular hurry to get to their destination. Olsson had few opportunities to really push the RS6 hard, though he did manage to find a few tunnels to amplify the wagon’s wicked exhaust note.

Olsson’s inspiration for his wagon came from his love of DTM cars and their wide-body kits. The roof-mounted box was a must for his ski gear and the flashy wrap work and decals were selected for the upcoming Gumball 3000 rally. This year’s rally starts in Stockholm and will cross the Atlantic for a U.S. route that includes Reno, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.

Watch the video below to see the wild RS6 Avant in action.

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte.

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic.

You don’t find many older Hondas in the sort of condition that this 1985 Civic 1500S was found in and, if you do, and you’re immediately hit with throwback vibes and rich memories of piloting the same sort of chassis during “spirited driving encounters” on the streets 30-or-so years prior, then you don’t let it

That a Suzuki Samurai is being featured by Super Street shouldn’t come as a complete shock to some of our long-time fans who know we love capturing something unique.
