With so many supercar and GT makers, Lamborghini included, promoting their winter driving courses these days, we want to show you what happens when Lambo owners decide to organize their own snow and ice sessions.
The video below shows us a pair of Gallardos in Utah that leave the city behind, heading for the mountains in search of all things slippery. We’re pretty sure many aficionados out there can easily resonate. After all, the cars you see heading outside in the middle of the night, during the first snow of a season, don’t drive themselves (no autonomous driving pun intended).

The two supercars almost find themselves at the opposite ends of the admittedly vast Gallardo range. In the basic corner, if we may call it that, we have a 2006 Gallardo, one of the early cars fitted with the even-firing V10 engines.

In the attention-grabbing corner, sits an LP570-4 Spyder Performante. Not only is this a special edition based on the 5.2-liter odd-firing Gallardo, but the owner has gone down the customization route, installing an air suspension and a custom exhaust, as well as an extreme wrap.

As we said, the pair of V10 Bulls starts climbing, with the supercars eventually hitting their targets, as miles and miles of snow-covered bends lay in front of them.

Contrary to the popular belief, drifting a Gallardo isn’t all that easy, at least not when you’re on a public road with no safety areas on the side. For one thing, the Gallardo’s all-wheel-drive doesn’t feature electronic control, which means you’ll need an extra sensitive posterior to keep things in check. Then again, there's nothing like a top-down winter ride to sharpen up your senses.

Do these Lamborghini drivers hooners manage to tick that box? Hit the “play” button below and you’ll find out. Just make sure the footage won't convince you to go drifting on the street, mkay?
