What do you do when your best laid plans to test supercars go awry because the snow? Drive them anyway, of course. Steve Sutcliffe pits his wits at the wheel of some fast cars in some pretty poor conditions.

This article would have been more interesting if it had been comparing the difference with and without winter tyres.

It would have been more bearable if it hadn't had that GHASTLY musical sound track overlaid.    You would think that a motoring magazine would let us hear the engines.

I appreciated the video. Bentley and Jaguar were my favourites. 911 screams 'midlife crisis' too much for me to comment.

That was a waste of 3mins32secs!,didn't show us anything we didn't know,wasn't particularly exciting,a real spur of the moment video....which shouldn't have been done.

That was an utterly pointless video made worse by the repetitive noise in the background.

That Porsche has appalling traction.

Please dont go down the Clarkson route. Uninformative, non entertaining self indulgent rubish.

If we were able to listen to the engines rather than noise it might just have been watchable.

I expect more from Autocar

The video is nice and all, but it really is pointless. Why didn't you use winter tires? I mean what is the purpose of testing 4wd supercars without them in the snow. What a waste of time. Do it again and do it properly.

Ok, you got me hooked.... what about a real comparison with real winter tires. Anyone who goes out in a multi-hundred horsepower sled in summer tires needs an IQ test. Now when do we get the real useful...COMPLETE comparison?
