Let’s hypothesize for a minute.
You’re both a supercar and a snow sport enthusiast, but you live in an area where mountains aren’t exactly easy to come by – Kansas, for instance. It snowed last night, the powder is still fresh, it’s a crisp clear day and your snowboard is by the front door.
Clearly, it’s the kind of day that’s ripe for riding. So, do you A. prepare for an 8 hour drive to Vail, Colorado, or B. find yourself a Lamborghini Huracan to stand in for the slopes? Honestly, who says you need mountains to tear up some snow on a snowboard?
Not Cheshire Gent, who uploaded a YouTube video Feb. 21 of a snowboarder hitching a ride off a Huracan.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Huracan is the ultimate partner for snowy conditions. Its all-wheel-drive system is completely computer controlled, and has the ability to send up to 100 percent of the torque to either the front or rear wheels and immediately adjust the ratio depending on grip, as we described in a Jan. 30 article.
So which would you choose? Spend a week in Vail, tearing up the slopes, or use your new Huracan to tear up some snowy fields? Check out the price comparison below, and let us know which appeals to you.
