This video is simply amazing. We have Redbull to thank for making the epic video of a gorgeous Ferrari F40 drifting up a snow-covered mountain.
and when we say snow covered, we aren’t joking!
They toss chains on the rear wheels and take the f40 right up the ski slopes! Forget about skis and snowboards, get a Ferrari for the mountain!
While this video is impressive and full of great cinematic shots, it has been done before.
In 2009 when Ken Block still raced for Subaru USA, he put a pair of cat tracks on his Subaru rally car and drifted around the slopes of the DC Mountain Lab (a private snowboard park in Park City, Utah).
Remember when Subaru made performance hatchbacks? WE DO. 😁
More About the Ferrari F40
The history of the car starts back in the early 1980s. Ferrari needed a car to compete specifically against the Porsche 959. Their response was the infamous Ferrari F40, which debuted in 1987. The mid-engine, two-door, rear-wheel drive supercar was built from 1987 to 1992. The LM version continued until 1994 and the GTE until 1996.
When the car debuted in 1987, it was the most powerful car Ferrari sold, not to mention most expensive. The F40 had a planned production total of 400 but that didn’t happen. Ferrari ended up producing a total of 1,311 Ferrari F40s. 213 versions were built and shipped to the United States.
