Okay, so maybe the first place you plan on driving your new Gallardo isn’t the snowy peaks ofNew Hampshire. That matters not to Lamborghini, which offers a driver-training course unique among the supercar set: winter driving.
This year’s Lamborghini Winter Driving Academy , offered in early march, gives Gallardo owners and other folks with $2500 in spare cash the chance to pilot the Gallardo in various wintry-weather scenarios. The course, Lamborghini says, pits driver and car against some slick surfaces and snow-covered tracks in the shadow of New Hampshire’s Mount Washington. Professional instructors teach winter safety and year-round hints for all included.
The one-day course costs $2500, including an evening at the Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa in Whitefield, New Hampshire. Get more information – or just gawk at supercars pirouetting around like ballerinas – at the program’s Web site, www.lamborghiniacademy.com.
