Bulls playing in the snow, the Lamborghini Accademia Neve
After an interruption of two years due to the global pandemic and travel restrictions, Lamborghini Accademia Neve is back, and they returned to Livigno, the famous and idyllic ski resort in the Italian Alps, close to the Swiss border, and they brought a very impressive series of cars with them, from the purposeful Urus over the Huracán EVO and Huracán STO.
Get a first impression from the official video below for the 2022 edition of the Lamborghini Accademia Neve in Livigno before we take a look at some amazing action shots:
The Lamborghini Accademia Neve is a three-day experience in the Italian Alps on a track covered with snow and ice, during the day you would get temperatures around the freezing point, but at night this would drop to -10°C to create a fresh layer of ice for the next day so you could take that beautiful Sant’Agata supercar into some amazing drifting action, all while being tutored by real-life Squadra Corse instructors.
Lamborghini calls these the ‘Black runs’, a series of challenges behind the wheel of a supercar driving on snow and ice-covered surfaces while spending the night in one of the more luxurious hotels in Livigno and having a great time in the evening at dinner in one of the fine-dining restaurants … Livigno is the place to be for an unforgettable experience.
For the 2022 edition of the Lamborghini Accademia Neve, you couldn’t opt for an Aventador like a few years ago, this time Lamborghini came with a series of Urus, their Super SUV that feels right at home in the snow thanks to her four-wheel drive transmission, and the fun would continue by taking the wheel of a few Lamborghini Huracán EVO models, which as we know not only come with four-wheel drive but also four-wheel steering … and rest assured, these V10s created some very impressive footage during the Accademia.
But I guess the most fun could be had by taking one of the Lamborghini Huracán STO onto the snowy ‘ring’ in Livigno, with a rear-wheel-drive system, the STO is a drift machine in the snow, as long as you know what you are doing, helped by the instructors, you would be having an amazing time drifting this top-of-the-line V10 Lamborghini.
There was even a green Huracán Spyder that joined the fun, sliding and drifting in the snow, covering the occupants in ice-cold debris, which is where Lamborghini’s in-house Cryotherapy comes in handy. Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse drivers receive an intense training session in Sant’Agata during the ‘Drivers’ Lab’ course, in which they take part using the most advanced configurations that allow their posture to be scanned in real life, complete with performance measurement … and a session of Cryotherapy at the end, all while being supervised by a personal trainer.
