No doubt one of the most illustrious Audi enthusiasts and owners out there has to be Jon Olsson. In addition to his celebrity athlete status as professional skier and X-gamer, Olsson’s also had a long list of amazingly built cars with Audi DNA. First came a camo Lamborghini, then a supercharged widebody Audi R8, then a Lambo/Audi V10-powered Radical road going LMP car and finally his RS 6 Avant. That last car served as a chase car in this year’s Gumball Rally, though it was just so good that Jon’s put it under the knife for a much more extensive build.

When pro skier and Gumball rallyist Jon Olsson started doing his cars up in snow camo wraps, it just sort of made sense. I mean, the guy is a Red Bull sponsored skier and so the snow theme is legit. Then he painted his house in the same look, and Audi Sweden opted to work with him on a limited edition A4 Avant… and then everyone seemingly started building snow camo cars.

The stars around Cristiano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso and Gareth Bale initially watched a gallop race from the grandstand. Afterward, they had the opportunity to personally familiarize themselves with the superior performance of the quattro permanent four-wheel drive on an obstacle and off-road course.
