Driving a supercar in the warmer months is fun, but the fun ends when you need to store it away during the wintertime. But what if you had a supercar that could be driven every season? Does such a car even exist? They do! Here are four of the best supercars to drive in the winter.
1. Audi R8 V10
The first car on this list is arguably one of the most daily-driver-friendly supercars ever to exist. The Audi R8 V10 is easy to live with, thanks to its comfortable cockpit, forgiving ride, and overall easy drivability. Its 602-hp V10 engine makes it a blast to drive on dry roads, and when the snow falls, the legendary Quattro AWD system really comes in handy.
The only downside is that the R8’s low ride height could make it a snow plow on snowier roads. So it could be better only to drive it when the snow is a little melted. Some of the standard features that make it a good winter car include dual-zone climate control, heated seats, heated side mirrors, and rear fog lights.
2. BMW i8
The BMW i8 has always been an unorthodox choice due to its unique three-cylinder hybrid powertrain. However, that odd powertrain pumps out 369 hp to all four wheels, which can prove to be capable in light snow situations. Just like the R8, the i8’s ride height could hinder its ability to drive in deeper snow. But it should do just fine on the slushy days.
Other features that make the BMW i8 a good winter car include a dual-zone climate control system, heated side mirrors, and three-stage heated front seats. According to Autobytel, the climate control system “makes use of an electric flow heater and auxiliary water heater to keep you warm whether you’re using the electric or gas motors.” That’s some pretty cool stuff.
3. Ferrari GTC4Lusso
Did you know that Ferrari makes an all-wheel drive car? It does. It’s called the GTC4Lusso, and its all-wheel drive system makes it capable enough to get to that ski resort in the mountains. Although, it wouldn’t be a true Ferrari without the necessary power. Under the hood is a super-potent 680-hp V12 engine that can rocket the car to 60 mph from a standstill in only 3.5 seconds.
Of course, if you’re driving during the winter, you may not be able to experience those quick acceleration times. But we’re sure it’s fun to drive even at slower speeds.
4. Nissan GT-R
When it comes to four-season driving, there’s almost no better supercar than the Nissan GT-R. The GT-R features an advanced all-wheel-drive system that’s designed to give the car the most traction possible in wet or dry driving situations. As you can imagine, it works well for snowy drives as well.
Under the hood is a twin-turbo V6 that pumps out 565 hp to all four wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. In addition to that power, the GT-R will keep you warm with its heated leather and suede front seats and dual-zone climate control.
The best supercars to drive in the winter
Although you may not think driving a supercar is possible all year round, it is. You just need to pick the right one. If you’re in the market, one of these six supercars with all-wheel drive is a good place to start – provided you can afford something like that $260,000 Ferrari.
