Why is the skier selling George?
Almost exactly a year ago, Jon Olsson shared his highly-customized Wraith called “George” that has an insane 810 horses under its bonnet. Well, it looks like Swedish professional skier’s Rolls-Royce is now up for sale at a not-so-budget-friendly price tag.
The classified is posted at The Netherland’s Auto Leitner, and has a selling price of around €275K (£240K). By the looks of it, nothing has changed in Olsson’s Wraith, including the exterior upgrades and heavily-tuned motor.
Aesthetics-wise, the skier’s Wraith has simple modifications like his signature camouflage wrap, lowered suspension, and the plethora of LED lights. It also rides on massive 24-inch Forgiato matte black wheels fitted with Pirelli Pzero Nero 285/30 ZR24 tyres, and has a bespoke roof rack for a jet-powered, carbon fibre surfboard that weighs 40 pounds. We're not sure if the surfboard is included in the classified, though.
If the exterior design is exciting, wait until you hear about its motor mods. Absolute Motors fiddled and tweaked the Wraith’s biturbo 6.6-litre V12 engine to make it produce 810bhp and 840 pound-feet of torque, all connected to a loud QuickSilver Sports exhaust to complement the rather monstrous output and look.
Looking at the posting in Auto Leitner, the Wraith is only at 8,078 miles as of this writing and still has the intriguing vending machine inside. However, it still isn’t clear as to why Olsson is selling George to the world, considering that the car is very fitting to his collection of monstrous vehicles.
Whatever the reason is, the posting is still out there, so if you’re interested, you can head on to the Auto Leitner website and request for an appointment to see George in person. And oh, this Wraith can do burnouts, too.
