Imagine a quiet winter’s day. It’s a serene white landscape full of freshly fallen snow and the festive veneer that parallels the chilled air.
Suddenly, a sharp, metallic roar pierces through the cold silence, and a streak of vibrant gloss disturbs the monochrome.
Now, do you want the quiet winters day, or do you want the distraction?
If you chose the latter, you’re in luck. Lamborghini’s driving school, Accademia, is hosting its first ever winter event in Snowmass Village, Colorado next February.
For $5,995, the 2015 Winter Accademia will allow enthusiasts to pilot the all-wheel drive Aventador LP 700-4 and Huracan LP 610-4 over ice and snow.
That’s at least 602 horsepower of unhinged, slippery fun, but you might be ready for the Winter Olympics by the end.
Lamborghini will offer instruction from professional driving instructors, who will teach “techniques exclusive to the Lamborghini Winter Accademia Program,” the automaker said. “Held in small groups with only two participants per vehicle, participants will practice emergency braking, hone drifting skills and perfect full-lap road course driving methods on the snow in Lamborghini vehicles.”
The sleds used for the event represent Lamborghini’s current production range. The Huracan, which replaced the Gallardo earlier this year, is up first with a 602-hp, 5.2-liter V10 and electronically controlled AWD.
The flagship Aventador takes everything to the next level. A 6.5–liter V12 takes place of the smaller V10, producing 690 hp and 510 pound-feet of torque. Like the Huracan, The LP 700-4 equips advanced AWD and variable torque split.
A Subway sandwich short of $6,000 seems pretty steep for two days of driving, but the price includes two nights of room and board, food, and a multimedia package so you can relive the experience once the adrenaline wears of.
Registration is open now.
