-I am also one of five official Lamborghini factory drivers, and as an ZF brand ambassador I participate in ZF events every year. This particular weekend I am driving a Lamborghini Huracan for event guests on the lake and land tracks of the ZF winter center close to the city of Arvidsjaur, Swedish Lapland. It has always been a dream for me to drive on ice. I have been driving non-stop for two and a half hours now, and it is fantastic. The car has spikes and because of that you can enter the curves at an extremely high speed.
