Jon Olsson is a man of many talents. A Swedish free skier and alpine ski racer, Olsson also shares with us a fascination for building cars, or to be more precise, tuning supercars and turning them into vehicles that suit his lifestyle.
Apart from being a devil on the slopes, Olsson is also known for being one sick car aficionado especially when you consider that he’s one of only a few people in the world that has a Lamborghini LP670-4 SV. parked in his garage.

His supercar comes painted in matte-black with a YNIQ logo on the rear wing. And now that you know who he is, you can probably guess why there’s a ski box on top of the car.
Refresher: With 670 hp and a weight reduction of 220 lbs, the LP 670-4 SV makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.2 seconds and can hit a top speed of 212 mph.
Olsson is back to unveil his latest work, the Nissan R35 GT-R Olsson Winter Edition.
According to Olsson, the work on this R35 GT-R included the addition of a roof box – it’s similar to the one on his Murcielago – and golden decals stickered in various parts of the GT-R, making for a perfect contrast to Godzilla’s exterior black finish. In addition to the aesthetic additions, Olsson also added a custom exhaust on the GT-R thereby adding better performance capabilities to a car that already comes with a 3.8-liter DOHC V6 engine producing 530 horsepower.
Olsson calls this particular version the ‘NR 1’ and says that, while some modifications have already been made, his work on it is far from finished. The skier said that we can “expect some more things to happen to this little thing later in the year…”
