TG on ice: the sexy slow-motion vid

There are few certainties in life, but this is one: everything looks better in slow motion. Even fat dudes getting shot with paintballs.

Which is why, on Top Gear magazine’s recent big adventure on a frozen Swedish lake, we packed film-maker David Hale into our hold baggage, then dispatched him onto the ice to capture spectacular slo-mo footage of our bevy of (mostly) four-wheel drive cars in action. 

And what a bevy it was: everything from Lambo’s Huracan, through the Nissan GT-R to Audi’s RS3 and the Porsche 911 Turbo.
