Jon Olsson and ABT Sportsline Team Up for Project Phoenix – RS 6+ Avant

words: Bill Cho, video: Jon Olsson

Today, Jon Olsson is a happy man. A couple of years ago, he wasn’t. In October 2015, his old RS 6 was stolen at gunpoint from its new owner and was discovered burned to the ground. From this:

to this:

As Jon said in his Instagram post from that day, who would do such a thing?

But back to today. Jon posted a YouTube video of him picking up his new RS 6 Avant. A new RS 6 would have been fantastic enough but it being Jon, he couldn’t leave well enough alone. He met Daniel Abt at a Formula E race and the plan was hatched. What emerged was this…Project Phoenix RS 6+.

From its distinctive Cruella de Vil camo to its menacing wheels, the RS 6+ is a one of a kind. Daniel and Jon took it out on its maiden voyage. From the look on his face, even Daniel, a professional race car driver, was amazed at the sound that came out of the exhaust.

Ride along and experience yourself the joy that is an ABT RS 6+. Don’t forget to subscribe to Jon’s YouTube account as I’m sure the Phoenix will rise again in more videos.
