Shot in 2013 by Swedish filmmaker Fredrik Jönsson, 39, this incredible footage shows a 700 horsepower Nissan GT-R speeding up a snowy hill - faster than most skiers going the other way.

And with temperatures dipping to a bone-chilling -24 degrees Celsius, the production team had to work fast to stop the camera lenses freezing over.

But despite the difficult conditions in Kåbdalis, Sweden, Fredrik said he wanted to film something he had never seen before.

He said: “Myself and the driver Robert Larsson wanted to create a fun video about driving in odd situations.

“We came up with the idea of running the car up the steepest ski slope and we checked around on the internet and it didn't seem like it had been done before.

“The biggest issue we had filming in sub zero temperatures was the displays on the cameras constantly freezing.

“Another problem was time constraints, as we only had the ski slope for filming between 7am and 9am. After that it was open to the public so we were against the clock.”

And Fredrik insisted that the incredibly fast vehicle, which was fitted with 8mm tyre spikes, only sustained minor damage from the unconventional drive.

He said: “The car is extremely well built and very solid – we gave it a proper beating.

“The four-wheel drive broke shortly after filming but thankfully it held up during the shoot.”
