The man likes to put roof boxes on top of supercars and shoe 200 mph-capable machines using studded tires, so you can probably see where this is going.

The car-loving athlete decided to use his Lamborghini Murcielago SV to get to the top of a frozen mountain earlier this month. And despite the snow over on Norway's West Coast being too soft to allow the skier to trade his usual downhill adventures for a V12-powered climb, the attempt is worthy of our undivided attention.

The sheer idea of trying to use a Murcielago for such a feat is enough to win us over. Heck, the Aventador's predecessor is difficult to handle in ideal conditions and remember, it wasn't the car that kept Jon from reaching the clouds.

The Raging Bull's outrageous studded tires might be the attention magnet here, but the insane second skin of the supercar also deserves to be discussed.

Installed in Stockholm by a specialist called Wrap Zone, this is the kind of camouflage that perfectly fits the winter setup, but won't let you down when you're in Monaco, which is where this Lamborghini spends quite a lot of its life.

Oh and we'll probably see those tires being put to work after all, as Jon explains on his website, "Not to worry though, this was just a temporary set back and of course we will be back with more ski slope action as soon as we can find a perfect place with icy snow, I mean now we already have the tires ready, so not a chance that we are giving up the concept before they have been properly used!."

Oh, and let's not forget Jon's Lamborghini Huracan is about to step under the spotlights and that V10 beast will wear more than a wrap and a roof box.
