900-Plus HP One-Off Audi RS6 "DTM" Wagon Stolen and Burned

Owner of special Uber and Gumball 3000 ride robbed at gunpoint.

It's a cruel automotive world when exotics or one-offs are destroyed. This time around, bad luck has fallen on the Audi RS6 DTM, a very special wagon thatSwedish freeskier Jon Olsson built earlier this year.

Olsson shared the news in a personal blog post titled "R.I.P. Rs6 DTM" where he explains what happened to his one-off wagon. Earlier this week the RS6 DTM was being driven by its new owner who was robbed at gunpoint. The thieves took off with the wagon and unfortunately that would be the last time the owner saw it in running condition. The wagon was later found severely burnt and unsalvageable. It's a tragic ending to what was truly a special wagon.

Olsson spent countless hours planning and executing the build. The engine was tuned to make over 900 hp and the custom bodywork was fabricated to replicate a DTM racer. After the build, Olsson teamed up with the ride-sharing app Uber and gave rides to a few lucky Uber users in Stockholm, Sweden. Uber said it received over 5,000 requests to ride in the wagon.

Following the Uber stunt, Olsson entered the RS6 DTM in this year's Gumball 3000 rally, which started in Stockholm and crossed the Atlantic to the U.S. for a route that included Reno, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.

So despite the wagon's tragically short life, it appears Olsson is glad he was able to have some fun with it. He's already working on a new build and says it will be "something just as good" as the RS6 DTM. And to the thieves, we hope your wagon-burning karma catches up with you.
