VIDEO: Jon Olsson drives Lamborghini Murcielago on Glacier

Everyone remembers Jon Olsson, right? He’s the Swedish professional skier who spends his free time creating epic tuned Audis and Lamborghinis. His most famous work was his Audi RS6 Avant that became an absolute monster, but was unfortunately stolen and burned to the ground. Olsson then recently decided to buy a brand-new Lamborghini Huracan and is currently working on that. However, one of his older project cars is a Lamborghini Murcielago that is tuned and fitted with studded snow tires, a car that he takes to a glacier in Norway and decides to have some fun until it runs out of gas.

Being a professional skier, Olsson isn’t afraid of a little snow and starts immediately ripping through the snow and ice in this massively powerful Lamborghini. The traction from the studded tires is surprisingly very good. He’s able to pretty easily point and shoot the Murcielago wherever he wants and let that monster V12 loose. It’s pretty awesome to watch all four tires spin while the V12 wails.

It’s also a pretty effective drift-weapon on the glacier. While older Lambos, like the Murcielago, were never graceful cars but more straight-line rockets, it’s pretty interesting to see this old Bull dance around in the snow. Thank the tires and whatever suspension tuning magic Olsson and his team have done. He even sets up slalom gate, the same sort he would ski through, and is able to get the old Murcielago through them with relative ease and it looks flipping awesome while doing it.

Most people without gobs of money typically dream of what they would do if they did have gobs of money. Olsson does, in fact, have gobs of money and is doing exactly what he should with it. Have fun. Life’s too short to not drive a Lamborghini on a glacier.

I've been in love with cars since I was a kid, specifically German cars. Now I get to drive them talk about them on the internet.
