Lamborghini Huracan in Snow

Lamborghini Huracan in Snow

When you think of a vehicle that can tackle ice and snow, Lamborghini is not exactly the first name you think of. Even if you narrow it down to performance car makers other brands, such as Porsche, are much more likely to come to mind.

However, the all-wheel drive versions of the Huracan and Aventador are very potent machines even when the road gets slick. Add on a pair of studded snow tires and quite a bit of fun (expensive fun at that) can be had.

130 participants of the Lamborghini Winter Accademia got the chance to drive the 610 horsepower Huracan, 700 horsepower Aventador and the 750 horsepower Aventador Superveloce in winter conditions. The locations for the extreme cold weather driving training was in Aspen, Colorado and Livigno in Lombardy, Italy. To help all of the Raging Bulls better fight for traction all cars were equipped with Pirelli Winter Sottozero tires, which are specifically studded to further increase the grip.

One or two day events were offered and the instructors were Lamborghini Factory GT3 drivers as well as members of the GT3 Junior Program. Factory driver, Mirko Bortolotti was also there to show off the abilities of the Lamborghini Huracan.

A great time was had by all those who were able to attend. Now the hope is that these folks will be able to better control their high performance vehicles no matter the road conditions.

The corse is good, but plan on spending some cash. For those wanting to drive the Winter Accedmia in the United States the cost is $6,995 for the two day event this year. For those just wanting to ride along that cost goes down to $695 (prices could change for next year so check out their website for more information).

The Lamborghini Accademia will now go for some dryer roads and offer instruction on some great race tracks, including the famed Nurburgring.
