The Carbon Fiber R8 Razor GTR.


Swedish professional freeskier and alpine ski racer Jon Olsson is most known for his abilities on the snow, but he has become quite known on the aftermarket automotive scene over the past few years due to his love for fast cars.  Last year we took a look at the spectacular Camouflage Ski Transporter Lamborghini Gallardo LP560 owned by the famous skier, and now we take a look at his latest creation in what he calls “the most extreme R8 in the world.” This Audi R8 has been tuned by the team at PPI, and pumps a staggering 600 horsepower out of the V10 motor.

The vehicle has been equipped with 10 layers of clear coat over the paint and carbon fiber to ensure that this thing can take a beating in any weather conditions. The vehicle has also been widened, and now stands wider than a Bugatti Veyron, all while having the same power to weight ratio as an R8 LMS race car. Of course what would one of Jon Olsson’s vehicles be without the bespoke ski box on top of the car equipped with LED lighting and a ski boot warmer that runs off an independent power source as to not drain the vehicle’s power source.

Touchscreen Friendly Gloves.

True, the downside to touchscreen phones are inclement weather patterns causing havoc on your hands but at least your mitts can stay stylishly warm thanks to Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves. No, they’re not the only smartphone friendly gloves on the market but they come by way of the Dutchies and those people live in pretty cold conditions, not to mention being neighbors to the coldest of the cold – Scandinavians, so I believe them when they say they’ve perfected it.

“We’ve tested miles of yarn to come up with improved anti-pilling properties and literally spent hour’s texting in an icebox. The result is an optimized balance of insulation, conductivity and elasticity. After numerous requests for different colors, the gloves are now available in natural gray, sandstone, lavender and coral pink.”

Holiday gift anyone? Holiday gift for moi? Thanks, appreciate it. Cheers.
