Watch a Lamborghini Murcielago leave the track behind and tear up a glacier

Lamborghini Murcielago Video

Why is professional skier Jon Olsson flying around a glacier in a snow camo Lamborghini Murcielago? I think the better question would be, why wouldn’t professional skier Jon Olsson fly around a glacier in a snow camo Lamborghini Murcielago? Welcome to the Fonna Glacier Ski Resort in Jondal, Norway, which recently played host to what appears to be one of the most fun and exhilarating joyrides of all time. I hope you’re strapped in…

While you were sitting at your desk in an office or at school earlier this month, Jon Olsson was stomping on a gas pedal inside a heavily customized Lamboghini Murcielago and doing donuts on a glacier. It’s OK to be jealous — I am too.

I’m not positive since I’ve never tried it myself, but I’m reasonably certain that it’s physically impossible to speed around a glacier in a Lamborghini without making this face:

Olsson floors it on the straightaways and really opens up the Murcielago’s V12. Straightaways are no challenge for brand new snow tires though, so he also navigates a slalom course at high speeds and then does a bunch of donuts. The whole thing was filmed from above by drones and, needless to say, sponsored at least in part by Red Bull.

Watching the video obviously isn’t nearly as fun as filming it was, but we’ll just have to make do.
