Video: Ferdinand Ice Festival 2012 Attracts Supercars to Frozen Lake

Offbeat

Exotic ice festival in Norway attracts an array of muscle and super cars for a spot of ice racing.

The Norwegian hamlet of Dresvjo, home to just 300 residents, was descended on by around sixty supercars and American muscle for the annual Ferdinand Ice Festival, who took it in turns to tackle the 4.4km long iceway carved on a frozen lake. Lambos, Camaros, GT3s, and GTRs were amongst the cars tackling the show and ice, but it was the Tesla Roadster that was the talk of the town as it was brought to the event for winter testing.

Journalists got the chance to test drive the world's fastest electric car, capable of 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and a 350km-range on a fully charged battery, and enjoyed this unique event amongst hundreds of Norwegian petrolheads.
