This gives new meaning to horsing around in the snow

It’s not often that you get to see a supercar drifting around in the snow, but two supercars? At the same time? That happens about as rare as a unicorn sighting. And yet, here we are, watching a Bugatti Veyron and a Lamborghini Aventador playing around in the snow like two kids in the middle of a sugar rush.

The video comes courtesy of YouTube channel Royalty Exotic Cars and it shows the two supercars engage in some snow debauchery. We see them drift, make snow donuts, and even race one another, all in the snow. It’s about as much fun as you can have with the Veyron and the Aventador in this wintry environment. It’s a great watch if you have a couple of minutes to spare.

I’ve already watched this video a couple of times and I still can’t get enough of it. I love the idea of supercars playing around in the snow doing all sorts of shenanigans to flex their power and performance capabilities.

It’s especially thrilling seeing a Bugatti Veyron, with its 1,200-horsepower, 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine, going roughshod in all that snow.

The Veyron isn’t supposed to be subjected to this kind of balls-to-the-wall debauchery — one single piece that breaks and it’s going to cost a lot of money to fix! — so seeing one let loose in this kind of environment without a care in the world is refreshing indeed.

I love that all this drifting and donut-making was being done while the Veyron and the Aventador are both covered in snow. Neither exotic is designed to be driven like this in the snow, but both do come with all-wheel drive systems so both can really run wild and enjoy the spectacle of snow drifting. Though far from safe, it’s also more fun to slip, slide, and drift when you can channel a lot of power at the faintest touch of the throttle.

Stay until the end of the video, too, because you’ll see a rope get affixed to the rear of the Veyron as the supercar tows what we can only imagine to be a skier who has lost all his marbles across a snow-covered embankment next to the road where the Veyron is.

It’s a satisfying video that only lasts around three minutes. If you have time, go check it out and see how fun it must be to be driving the Veyron and the Aventador in that kind of environment. Just don’t get any ideas about doing it yourself. Something tells me that all these shenanigans were done in a controlled environment.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
