Default AWD-Drifting in the first LP-570-4 Superleggera in the US!

I did this shoot a while back but only got around to processing them now.

Anyway, we had it for one more day until it had to be shipped back out to cali for R&T or whoever got it next. So I wanted to take it out to the dry lake beds.

I was supposed to only do some static shots but couldn't resist and decided to have some epic awd-drifting fun lol.

Enjoy the pictures!

And for anyone thats interested I have behind the scenes commentary for each picture on my blog. I go into nerdy detail about how and why I took each shot. Just thought I'd give a heads up. You can see it here.

Thanks for looking!

great photos!

very well done

drifting on the dry lake seems like a torture for such a nice car though
with all the sand and pebbles being flicked up

Unfortunately I don't thats the last of them from the series.

However, I was just flown up to SF by the CCO of Apple to shoot his car. A SS camaro, modena spyder, and supercharged range rover tagged along too. I'll have the complete set done soon. But heres a teaser for now:
