Audi R8 V10: How does it drive in the snow?

Audi R8 V10
If this winter isn’t enough proof that Audi’s quattro technology is superior to any standard AWD, then go on and read this winter drive review of the Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro aka Audi R8 V10.

Snow and ice can be a blessing to a road tester; it teaches you a great deal about the balance and traction a car has, when you’d have to get out onto a track to learn the same lessons otherwise.

True to expectations, the Audi’s perfect directional poise and ESP got it through. With the electronics off, under too much throttle, it would gradually oversteer around a corner or away from a T-junction, but a quick redistribution of power to the front wheels, coupled with a quick correction on the wheel, soon sorted it out. At bumbling speeds, the car would gently slide and yaw around at times, but never felt out of control.
