Tiff Goes Snowmobiling with Gallardo LP560-4

Winter fun Italian style

Fifth Gear's Tiff Needell has finally answered the age old question of what a multi-millionaire should drive when they reside in a winter climate but don't want to settle for a Range Rover or the luxury oriented Bentley Continental GT.

His car of choice for this winter adventure is the Lamborghini LP560-4, the company's newest version of the Gallardo which is equipped with standard all-wheel drive. Despite being of slightly questionable value on the street, the all-wheel system truly shines when driven on the snow. When combined with Lamborghini's advanced traction control and stability systems the car is amazingly simple to drive but it puts a serious damper on the fun.

However that is quickly rectified by turning the system off and giving the Lambo full access to the engine's massive horsepower. The screaming sound of an Italian V10, power slides, and rooster tails soon follows.

Nice. But still I think that white one on Callisto black wheels looks best, maybe not on the snow cause it won't look at all, but everywhere else white or grigio proteus are the way to go.

Interesting how many cold-cycles (winter seasons and freezing/melting times) that car can take with no damage?

That color is beautiful indeed. Ive seen them in all colors and green is by the far the most unique. The ONLY car in the world that could pull that off.

A stupid stunt but fun for him- that front end makes a good snow scoop.
