A young couple in Lithuania hand-carved this Ferrari from scratch.
Raise your hands if you'd love to own a Ferrari LaFerrari, the first hybrid Ferrari ever. Now, raise your hands again if the current value of one of these wonderful supercars of way over $1 million is, well, more than a little out of reach. A young couple in Panevezys County, Lithuania, decided that they were going to park a LaFerrari in their yard no matter what.
Taking advantage of the frigid temperatures in their part of the world, the sports car enthusiasts decided to sculpt a life-size replica of the LaFerrari entirely from snow. Donata Bugiene filmed her husband over the course of two days as he completed the ambitious task.
We've seen some pretty awesome replicas from natural materials before. There was a Chevrolet Colorado replica made out of sand and a floating Ferrari F50 built using wood. This icy LaFerrari is just as much of an achievement as those creations.
After the arduous task of sculpting the basic shape was complete, Donata Bugiene's husband used environmentally-friendly spray paint (in red, of course) for the main body, with the final touches applied with a spatula. Although it's near-impossible to get the details precise when working with snow, the end result is pretty phenomenal.
"The Ferrari is a real size, made to the dimensions of the original Ferrari LaFerrari," said Bugiene to Storyful. "We decided that if you can't buy it - you can build it yourself! Now, no one can deny that a Ferrari is standing in our yard."
A mere 499 examples of the LaFerrari were produced. The rear-mid-mounted V12 produces an epic 950 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque with electric assistance, powering it to 60 mph in only 2.5 seconds. It's little wonder that it's become a dream car for many Ferrari fans. Let's just hope that the couple's exotic snow car isn't the second LaFerrari to succumb to an arson attack.
