Lamborghini’s Esperienza Neve, the much-anticipated ice driving event, has made its way to the breathtaking Southern Hemisphere Proving Grounds in Queenstown, New Zealand, thrilling fans and automotive enthusiasts across the Asia Pacific region. Guests were invited to take the wheel of Lamborghini’s super sports cars and Super SUVs, such as the Huracán Tecnica, Huracán STO, Urus Performante, and Urus S. Guided by professional Lamborghini driving instructors, they navigated the icy and snowy circuit, testing the cars’ performance and control on low-grip surfaces.
A highlight of the event was the first-time inclusion of the all-terrain super sports car Huracán Sterrato. This magnificent car, equipped with the revised Lamborghini Integrated Vehicle Dynamics (LDVI) system, demonstrated its capabilities on snow and ice. Participants witnessed the STRADA and SPORT drive settings specifically calibrated for road, while the new RALLY mode offered an optimized driving experience on loose surfaces, including snow.
Safety was never compromised, even under very low-temperature conditions. Lamborghini’s team of professional instructors provided precise instructions, ensuring participants maximized both their potential and the performance capabilities of the cars. The four-wheel steering of Urus Performante and Urus S performed flawlessly on the challenging ice track, and the rear-wheel drive Huracán STO and Tecnica delivered high-octane race-oriented control, even on snow.
Francesco Scardaoni, Automobili Lamborghini Region Director for Asia Pacific, praised the event, saying, “Esperienza Neve is the perfect dynamic ice driving environment for our valued clients to experience the powerful performance and potential of our Lamborghini cars in winter conditions.”
Esperienza Neve wasn’t just about the driving experience. Guests also indulged in luxury accommodations on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and gourmet dining experiences at exclusive South Island restaurants in New Zealand. The event showcased the technological prowess of Lamborghini’s fleet, particularly the all-terrain super sports car Huracán Sterrato, cementing the brand’s reputation for delivering excitement and performance in all conditions. It was an unforgettable journey that car enthusiasts and Lamborghini fans will cherish, as it gave them a glimpse of what true driving pleasure is all about.
