Sliding Aston Martin V12's all over the place on ice is something we all want to do with our weekends. Actually, it's something we want to do every day, and with the British launching their first ice driving program in North America, your chances just got better.

Engineers spent many months perfecting the handling of their cars and making sure they had enough grip even with the 565 hp and 457 lb ft on tap as in the Vantage V12 S. Then, people ignore their efforts for a few hours in order to slide on ice like children.

To satisfy that inner child in their customers, Aston Martin launched an On Ice program at Crested Butte in the Rocky Mountains after building an ice track that took four month to complete.

Can Astons be had by prescription in CO now? I'd love to open a dispensary because I think this might be the cure for anxiety, depression, would help with chemo, and would also serve as palliative care for terminal patients, even if they just have to ride in the passenger seat.

And you know the government has been covering this up as a viable medicine through their emissions regulation, right? The FDA is in bed with the little turbo people and the electric carmakers. It's a conspiracy!

What were we just talking about?
