Jon Olsson's R8

Eat your heart out, Batman. Jon Olsson's new PPI Design Audi R8 Razor GTR is an automotive masterpiece. Yes, it's gorgeous and bad-ass black, but the coolest thing about it is its carbon-fiber frame—saving the R8 some 250 pounds and resulting in a zero-to-62-mph sprint time of 3.2 seconds. Top speed is 208 mph—and that's with Olsson's signature rocket box on top.

The nine-time X-Games medalist's extensive collection also contains an all-wheel Lamborghini Gallardo, which he famously drives in any weather. Our faves, however, are still the Japanese beaters he jumped in New Zealand with Ted Ligety.
