Though most folks wouldn't consider a Lamborghini a car built for winter and snowstorms, think again.

You have to remember, a lot of the marque's products now feature all-wheel drive. Hell, Lamborghini even hosts a winter driving school now.

Granted, you can't become overly confident. Even though the vehicles feature AWD, they're set up with power mostly being sent to the rear wheels. That's why you'll see in the Jon Olsson clip below that he can get the ass-end out so fast by simply cocking the wheel.

Interesting things to note: 1) Though a lot of speculation has posited that this is an LP560, it isn't as far as I can see. Check out the front headlights. It looks like the rear clip and taillights are from an LP560 and this is really an earlier, older Gallardo that's had some work done to it. 2) It's wrapped in a white camouflage scheme, the real color is yellow -- this can be seen when Olsson opens the door.

For those of you not in the loop, Olsson is a professional skiier. To be more specific, he competes as a freeskier and as an alpine ski racer. Though he's not an olympian -- yet -- he has proved himself at the X-Games and in various other skiing events.

Not sure about you all, but I think winter driving is some of the best fun you can have with your pants on. Now imagine winter driving in a Lamborghini...
