What do you do when you’ve exhausted all typical modification options for your Lamborghini Aventador but still need to make a YouTube that’ll attract a lot of viewers? If you’re TheStradman, you bolt on a set of snow tracks.
We’ve seen regular cars fitted with snow tracks in the past. In fact, the most recent episode of The Grand Tour saw Richard Hammond bolt on a set of tracks to his Ford Focus RS. However, this is the first time we’ve seen a car as expensive as the Aventador fitted with tracks, and watching it driving through the snow makes for very entertaining viewing.
Obviously, this is not an easy job, so quite a lot of work was done to ensure the tracks were able to fit onto the supercar without destroying it. The result is an Aventador that sits much higher and is also much more capable when taken off road than a standard example.
Not everything goes smoothly though. TheStradman and his friends get a little too ambitious when driving the car in deep powder more than 18-inches deep and get stuck twice, forcing a Jeep Gladiator, also on tracks, to tow them out. While the Aventador is great on the street, its clutch encounters issues through the snow and it could only be driven in first gear, meaning the 6.5-liter V12 had to be revved hard to get any kind of momentum.
