Snow Drifting in a 600HP RWD Race Car

by Paul Strauss

The Rebellion R2K is a high-performance race car that was designed for the Gumball 3000 rally, which runs from Miami to Ibiza. But that warm-weather route didn’t stop driver Jon Olsson from taking the 600 horsepower, 2,200 lb. beast out onto the snow-covered mountains of Storlien Sweden to see how it would perform.

The rear-wheel drive car handles the slippery stuff surprisingly well, even tearing up the powder on an uphill climb. Of course, he did swap his summer slicks for some 315 wide winter tires to help give him traction.

And in case you’re wondering how the Gumball 3000 can go from Florida to Spain in eight days, it’s because there’s a transcontinental flight between New York and Scotland at the half-way point.
