You could say that we’re picky here at autoevolution, at least as far as the weather is concerned - now that the hot season is here, we miss the winter. We’re really looking forward to playing with our beloved cars on the snow and ice.
However, it seems that we’re not the only ones who miss the winter - Bentley has recently released a video that showcases its ice driving program. Dubbed “Power on Ice” this initiates participants in the art of four-wheel drive sideways driving.

In order to bring this to our attention, Bentley placed Juha Kankkunen, four times World Rally Champion, behind the wheel of a Continental GT V8. The massive Grand Tourer performs one of the sweetest dances we’ve seen this year, so the clip is a true delight.

The vehicle doesn’t seem to be wearing special equipment, apart from the studded tires and a front fascia lip that protects it from the snow. However, it is probably fitted with the optional sports exhaust system, as it provides an incredible soundtrack.
