Driving fast on icy roads and slippery conditions is literally one of the worst nightmares of any driver. But not when you are driving Lamborghini Urus at a controlled test event track. Driven by Days of Speed specialist Andrey Leontyev, the Lamborghini Urus hit a top speed of 185 mph (298 kph), setting a new record for speed on the ice.
This record was recorded during the ‘Days of Speed’ event organized by the LAV-racing company, held between March 10 and 13, and saw the Italian super SUV reach an impressive 185 mph (298 km/h), just 2.5 mph (4 km/h) less than the maximum speed achieved during the practice runs.
This event was organized at Lake Baikal, in Russia’s Southern Siberia, which is the largest freshwater and deepest lake in the world.
Russian driver Andrey Leontyev, who is an 18-time ‘Days of Speed’ record-holder managed the Italian beast quite impressively in harsh conditions. The Russian Automobile Federation (RAF) and the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) supervised the claimed record-setting run and shall release the official data next month in April.
