Jon Olsson drives his Audi RS6 DTM as Uber car in Stockholm

Jon Olsson has used his brand new Audi RS6 DTM as an Uber car on the streets of Stockholm, Sweden. The high-performance wagon was available on the Uber app for six hours last Friday and during this interval there were no less than 5,700 booking requests. Only 11 Uber users and their friends were lucky enough to take ride in the RS6 DTM which was driven by Jon Olsson himself.

The vehicle will make its official debut on May 23 in Stockholm when Jon Olsson will take off in the 2015 Gumball 3000 rally as part of Team Betsafe. As a reminder, the 2015 Audi RS6 DTM is a high-performance machine equipped with an uprated V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine delivering 950 hp when running on normal fuel and more than 1,000 hp when using race gas.

The massive bump in output was obtained after installing TTE9XX turbochargers that have been 18-karat gold anodized while many of the body pieces are now manufactured from carbon fiber to shave off weight.
