    There's just something so cool about taking a luxury car and modifying to handle rough terrains.... I love projects like these..

    Looks awesome.

    I was just out on the ice a few weeks ago. I always take winter tires (because that's my usual winter setup) for that event, but it's not really enough traction. I need to switch to studs. Interestingly, you can end up with too much traction on the ice if you carry that train of thought far enough.

    I wonder what the Trophee Andros tire requirements are. It looked like studs from the video I just pulled up.

    Love that livery going to make a few changes and recreate it in Assetto Corsa.
    Front wheels black to match and a few other things to not infringe on copyright.

    Bentley... ice racing car? I already thought the Continental GT kind of looked out of place as a GT racing car, but this ice racing car seems even more out of place. Interesting to see something as obscure as this. I wonder how it would perform...

    They've always been AWD.

    Why not the Bentayga? Still, it's a pretty cool idea. Someone needs to do that livery in Forza.
