Eight ultimate sports cars for winter

Microsoft IES Logo By Jonathan Yarkony, MSN Autos of Microsoft IES | Slide 1 of 8

Audi R8 4.2

Why not start this list off with a bang? Although we could have chosen a number of sporty Audis (the S4 leaps immediately to mind), the ultimate sporty Audi is also the best machine to tackle ice and snow. With its mid-engine configuration and quattro all-wheel drive, the R8 has balance down to a science. Add to that an incredibly communicative chassis and suspension and you'll feel like you're wearing the car like a body glove. Although you may be tempted by the new, more powerful V10, the 4.2L V8 and its 420 horses are plenty for low-traction conditions.Related Autos links:Research a new AudiIce-driving in an Audi R8Gallery: Hot cars on iceGet the most from your sports car this winterWinter driving tips and advice
