Jon Olsson drifting uphill on snow in his 600bhp Rebellion R2K in Storlein, Sweden [videos]

Jon Olsson is known to most people as a professional freeskier and alpine ski racer, but he also has passion for fast cars, extremely fast cars.

The car you see here is called Rebellion R2K and is based on the Ultima GTR, featuring a 600bhp engine with power sent to the rear wheels.

This 1,000kg supercar was co-designed with former Koenigsegg chief engineer Leif Tufvesson and looks ready to compete in Le Mans, though it is actually street legal and will be taking part of the upcoming Miami-Ibiza Gumball 3000 rally this summer.

In this latest promo video we get to see Jon drive the R2K uphill a snowy slope in Storlien, Sweden. Despite rear-wheel drive, the R2K has enough traction and has no problem tackling all this snow.
