The hills are alive, with the sound of a 1,500 hp quad-turbo Alpine assault. To make sure their car can handle winter weather, Bugatti engineers handed the keys to a legendary Austrian skier. Herman Maier has several winter Olympic medals, and he proved the Bugatti Chiron Snow Drifting is the ultimate winter experience.

Taking place at Altenmarkt im Pongau, his hot laps were not far from his hometown. The same track Porsche used to revive the ice races was used to show the car’s handling abilities. Herman said “The exhilarating feeling of a controlled drift is only comparable to a perfect one performed on skis”, Hermann Maier exclaimed, fascinated by the Chiron’s performance in such slippery conditions.
