After failing, multiple times, to take his furious Lamborghini up a sky slope, Jon Olson finally managed to drive the vehicle on top of a glacier, and the view was extraordinary.
A few days ago, the free-skier posted the struggles he’s been through in an attempt to conquer nature itself with at rear-wheel-drive, 6.5-litre V12 Murcielago. After trying in vain for the better part of two weeks, Olson called it quits due to the poor quality snow, which wasn’t offering any traction to the Lambo’s humongous spiked-up wheels.
However, in the end Olson didn’t travel all the way from Monaco to Norway’s west coast for nothing, as the elements finally gave him a break and he was able to have a little fun with the LP640.
In his own words, “this one did not come easy, but to rip around on a ski resort in a rear wheel converted 640hp Lambo with 16mm spikes beats pretty much everything!”.
This stunt also gave him an idea how much grip the tires can handle, opening new winter adventures (and possibilities) for the mid-engine supercar. But until then, we’re left with a rather fantastic video.
